Micro Lens Array (MLA) projection technology from ams enables automotive manufacturers to implement compact, small-footprint projection lighting which can cast bright and crisp images on to flat surfaces. Featuring inherently extended focal lengths, MLA Projected Lighting devices can cast images on a variety of surfaces and over long focal distances, making them ideal for both exterior body lighting and interior lighting.
Future applications include decorative lighting for cars' exterior and interior, but also safety lighting, such as an additional brake light or back up guide lamp, helping to raise awareness of other traffic participants about actions this vehicle is taking. With upcoming autonomy of cars, this will also become ever more important to show when a vehicle is in autonomous mode.
