Lighting engineers and designers are using LED (light emitting diodes) in the design of rear lamps for future vehicle generations. An Edge Light guide is an element with an illuminated front edge that can be used as a striking signature. The Edge-Light system can be implemented for all signal functions and can add the appearance of depth with the addition of surface structuring. The light curtain is a flat light guide lens with light from an LED at one edge light that is broken, reflected and radiated at the structures on the surface. The combination of the two systems creates a clear tail light signature that overflows into a flat light curtain to the side. The future development of flat, contoured light guides will produce a three-dimensional light guide. Mirror tunnel or tunnel light has now been adapted for innovative 3D vehicle illumination lighting systems. The transparency and the degree of reflection of the front half-mirror are determined precisely by the coating process.
