Shaping the future of mobility lighting

Mobility is currently experiencing a disruptive change. Vehicles are evolving from a means of transport to self-driving data centers while independence, luxury and design are being redefined. Automotive lighting will play an essential role in this context. From a mere means of sight, light has become one of the distinguishing features for high-quality vehicles of the future.

At Plastic Omnium we address these developments with high-performance lighting solutions that enable greater design freedom, advanced services and driver assistance systems, for a unique travel experience.

To achieve this, Plastic Omnium Lighting offers differentiating exterior systems for OEMs through a comprehensive, end-to-end lighting value chain that leverages system architecture and complexity in innovative ways.

From traditional areas such as headlights and signaling lighting to intelligent, high-performance products such as projection and advanced ambient solutions, Plastic Omnium Lighting supplies a high-tech product portfolio that enables the connected, safe, personalized and sustainable mobility of the future.

This is what we are working on with around 770 employees at 8 locations worldwide.

"With Plastic Omnium Lighting, we aim to rethink automotive lighting and take it to the next level, with the goal of creating a new key player in the mobility lighting market. Our ambitious growth strategy aims to meet the increasing demand for smart body panels and shape the future of automotive lighting."

Dedicated to 
Projection Solutions

Light projections are already widely used in everyday life because of their strong emotional staging, for example to illuminate building facades at events. This emotional aspect levers the acceleration of light projections and solutions in the automotive sector.

With the development towards autonomous driving, light will not only be needed for better sight, but will play an increasing role for the communication of a car to its environment (car2x) and contribute to the acceptance of autonomous vehicles.

The evolution of light

From mechanical functions to digital and connected intelligence

Once manually and serving to improve the driver’s visibility, lighting is now digital and connected, offering automatic adjustment and smart features. Halogen and xenon lamps have been replaced by LED lighting, and intelligent lighting systems connected to on-board sensors and external data sources are taking interior and exterior lighting to a new level.

Software algorithms enable automatic glare-free high beam, for example. Projection systems contribute to greater safety and in the future will support autonomous vehicles in communicating with other road users while also opening up new possibilities for vehicle design.

Interior lighting provides well-being, entertainment for passengers and the feeling of being in a "living room on wheels".
