Covestro and HELLA for Holographic Vehicle Lighting

16 November 2017

BEST DISPLAY OR EMERGING TECHNOLOGY APPLICATION OF HOLOGRAPHY

WINNER - Covestro and HELLA for Holographic Vehicle Lighting

The unique rear lighting system is derived from a lamp comprising three parts, with each part being equipped with holographic technology. The holograms were developed by designers at HELLA and incorporated by the Covestro team into a transparent holographic film. The film was then laminated onto a 3 mm glass plate. For the future, plastic will be used instead of glass in production applications.

The holographic film is illuminated from behind using LED light sources and reflectors. This results in a 3D effect – as if the elements are floating freely in space. In both of the outer elements of the rear lamp, a hologram was inserted with numerous illuminating areas (‘flakes’).
