AUTOMOTIVE: INTERIOR LIGHTING

In today’s automobiles, versatile high-resolution touchpads have replaced analog gauges and knobs. Modern smart lighting adjusts to changing conditions and creates a relaxing, calm environment in the vehicle. Radios have been replaced with multi-function, touch-sensitive infotainment displays. The development of headsup displays have also added to the lighting and display components of a vehicles interior. All of these components create the interior lighting and display systems and it is important to manage and control the colour and illumination of each.

Interior lighting and displays need to conform to strict guidelines and regulations that control the amount of light and colour of the lights. Interior displays and lighting need to be well illuminated and easy to read at a glance. It it therefore important to manage and control colour and illumination of the interior lights and displays.

In most cases, lighting components are manufactured by a wide range of manufacturers which causes challenges when assembling lights. Car part manufacturers need to comply with strict guidelines with regards to the colour and illumination of the lights they manufacture.

Colour and light measurement can be used to measure every part of a vehicles lighting and a majority of our instruments are designed specifically for the automotive industry.

Colour measurement assists car and parts manufacturers with the following:

  • Measure the colour of lights to control lighting according to standards
  • Measure the intensity of emitted lights
  • Measure the quality of illuminated displays on speedometers and infotainment systems
  • Measure the change in colour of wellness and mood lighting
  • Control lighting to ensure vehicle safety standards
  • Avoid customer complaints due to colour
  • Comply with strict stipulations set by the automotive industry
