    “A focus on driving comfort|and safety”

    Light and sight, with a link to design, comfort, and safety, are currently of high importance for the automotive development. Car manufacturers are focusing more and more on lighting system development. Besides head- and rear lights, illuminations interior of the car are distinctive features nowadays. B&W respond to the increasing technical demands of light components and innovative concepts with a wealth of experience gathered in a high amount of projects carried out.Customized test rigs.

    Holistic accompaniment

    Durability, energy efficiency, colour temperature, temperature behavior, and the integration of intelligent components, are significant factors in developing progressive lighting elements. Due to working with the latest simulation technology, we are able to gain a precise overview of luminance, distribution of temperature, and flow behavior at an early stage. Different kinds of light distribution can be rated objectively in simulations of night drives. An exact photometrical interpretation is guaranteed due to detailed calculations of the beam path and examinations of the installation space. Starting from concept development, over design and component development, through to manufacturing fully operative photometrical systems in our model making.

    Innovation as a benchmark

    In many respects, B&W takes a pioneering role when it comes to setting new standards due to the adaptation of the latest scientific findings. Our professional expertise is embodied by developments such as laser light for headlights or transparent OLEDs for taillight operations. By using different kinds of simulations, such as a splashing water simulation in the washer jet area, we’re trying to apply our know-how to different fields.

    Intelligent lighting functions

    Light systems are becoming more and more intelligent due to the progressive linkage to trip computers, navigation- and camera systems. For instance, nowadays it is seen as a matter of course that single diodes can be activated or dimmed individually whilst the light beam adjusts itself to the cornering ability.

    More freedom for emotional design

    B&W lay the foundations for more freedom when it comes to design. Our experts are constantly working on innovative concepts for ambient lighting. Amongst others, the latest findings regarding micro-optics technology are taken into consideration in order to achieve the best results. The outcomes are graphics with a high level of contrast and precision. Our range of services is completed by consistent arrangements in the interior, which set the stage for an exciting way to experience design.
