BMW M4 Iconic Lights Concept launched

BMW has showcased the next generation of laser illumination called Laserlight. Laserlight is now able to offer its impressively long beam range of up to 600 metres in combination with the BMW Selective Beam function.




At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, BMW is unveiling ways in which Laserlight, extensively integrated with assistance systems and vehicle sensors, can be used to implement new intelligent lighting functions for enhanced safety and comfort.


Laserlight can work with the navigation system to illuminate corners well in advance, while  a laser-based Dynamic Light Spot can provide early warning of people or animals at night from a distance of up to 100 metres. In terms of design, the LED cluster harks back to      the typically twin barrel headlamps that have become a BMW trademark for the last few 
decades.


OLEDs (organic light-emitting diodes) , which give  light from wafer-thin  semiconducting layers of organic material. For the first time, both the tail lights and rear direction indicators feature OLED technology presented. The illuminated surfaces are  positioned  to produce a three-dimensional effect. 
OLEDs also take up less room on account of their thin size while using less power than normal bulbs.


OLEDs produce light uniformly over their entire surface which in turn leads to better illumination and a free hand to the designers.
