  • Audi guest speakers on podium at ISAL 2019
  • Next-generation digital Audi OLED technology

At the thirteenth International Symposium on Automotive Lighting (ISAL 2019), Audi presenters will offer insights into the next generation of OLED lighting technology. The new digital OLED technology enables customizable lighting designs and permits communication using the exterior lighting. The congress begins on September 23, 2019 in Darmstadt. Audi guest speakers will be presenting digital OLED technology as well as the latest trends and developments in lighting at what is the biggest and most important conference for automotive lighting technology.

Audi’s OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology first went into series production in 2016 in the rear lights of the Audi TT RS. Unlike point light sources – such as LEDs which are made of semiconductor crystals – OLEDs are flat light sources. Their light attains a new level of homogeneity, and dimming is continuously variable. The lights do not cast any shadows, nor do they require any reflectors, light guides or similar optical components – and this makes the OLED units very efficient and lightweight. Another advantage of OLEDs is the scope for dividing them into small segments that can be energized to different levels of brightness. OLED lights can also produce animation effects in Audi models, such as coming home and leaving home scenarios.
