indie Semiconductor has unveiled a family of highly integrated and flexible solutions optimized for automotive interior lighting applications in next-generation vehicles.
Specifically, indie’s smart LED devices combine a 32-bit general-purpose microcontroller together with all the necessary hardware and software programming required to implement an interior lighting system – in various configurations.
From exterior styling to how drivers see the cockpit with interior cabin lights, smart lighting is changing how automobiles are designed, marketed and distinguished. In particular, with new LED platforms generating the same light intensity while consuming substantially less energy than legacy incandescents, automotive OEMs now have more options and form factors when determining where lighting can be placed on the interior, front and rear of vehicles.
Beyond improved efficiency and styling, LED technologies are also enabling adaptive front lighting systems (AFS) — one of the most important factors in mitigating driver fatigue and increasing safety under challenging conditions.
