BMW has put on quite a show at CES in Las Vegas this week for demonstrating their laser headlights and OLED taillights implemented in the M4 Iconic Lights concept.
BMW won the race against Audi for delivering the first production car with laser headlights and now they are stepping up their game with an evolution of the technology. Fitted onto the M4 Iconic Lights concept, the laser headlights offer a long beam range of up to 650 yards (almost 600 meters) and benefit from an anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant which automatically alters the projected light in order to avoid disturbing traffic participants. Another neat function is the Dynamic Light Spot which warns incoming people and animals to get out of the away from a distance of up to 110 yards (100 meters).
Aside from displaying the latest advancements in laser headlights, BMW has also prepared OLED (organic light-emitting diode) taillights with the OLED elements being just 1.4mm thick. Since these taillights have individual modules, it means these can be activated separately which enables the possibility of creating various lighting effects.
