Audi has taken a step further in the field of automotive lighting technology with a new lighting competence center at the company's site in Ingolstadt.
Vehicles can be driven down to this 120 metre long underground light tunnel, which offers possibilities for the development of innovative lighting solutions and camera-based lighting assistance systems.
Ulrich Hackenberg, a Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development at Audi said, "Audi is the leading brand for automotive lighting technology."
"From the xenon plus headlight to the matrix‑LED headlight to the laser light, we have been putting pioneering innovations into series production for the past 20 years. Light is part of an automobile's esthetics and is becoming an interactive medium of information."
Audi's new lighting competence center located at its headquarters is the biggest lighting tunnel for vehicles in Europe.
Engineers test technology like adaptive high beam and camera‑based lighting assistance systems. These avoid dazzling drivers of oncoming traffic and enhance safety.
