Audi has teased its plans to introduce OLED lighting systems on a concept car to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

A shadowy video, highlighting the advancements in automotive lighting technology spanning more than a century, introduces Audi’s newest lighting innovation.

You may be more familiar with OLEDs (organic light emitting diode) via their use in TV and mobile phone screens. Now Audi wants to combine them with their existing lighting technologies to create what it calls OLED Matrix.

Designers will be afforded new opportunities thanks to the very thin construction of an OLED unit. Advances in technology will allow three-dimensional lighting surfaces via the use of plastic substrates.

Additionally, OLED lights require far less cooling, are infinitely dimmable, and require less voltage to operate.

Audi’s current LED Matrix headlights are already able to selectively dim around oncoming cars. With OLED Matrix that capability may be extended to include visual warnings for pedestrians, or to highlight their presence to drivers.

In January this year BMW showcased OLED lighting technology on its M4 Iconic Lights Concept. Audi and BMW have previously had a stoush over who was first to market with laser headlights, so expect the race to be on again.
