IncWell's partner seeks technology to embed lighting effects for the exterior of the vehicle that remain hidden until activation.
With the advancement of vehicle accent lighting and electronic comfort features, there is a rising demand for “hidden until lit” lighting effects for the exterior of the vehicle. One highly desired lighting effect is the ability to transmit light through a body color panel. Previously investigated lighting solutions present multiple issues in achieving the desired effect in appearance and brightness.
The biggest challenge is to achieve localized desired lit appearances on large panels without splitting the panels or adding a secondary part with a bezel or feature line / gap. Lighting through painted panels is a unique challenge due to the opaqueness of paint and potential light scattering in the substrate material causing fuzzy lighting appearances.
The successful technology will be capable of:
