Range Rover relies on smart digital lighting from ZKW
Intelligent LED headlights provide glare-free high beam and can project animations onto the road
The all-new Range Rover illuminates the road with a new type of lighting system from ZKW. The “Digital Light Processing” LED headlights not only produce stepless, glare-free high beams that automatically block out oncoming or other road users. The smart, digital front lighting also enables animated images to be projected onto the road. In addition to the “Digital Light Processing” modules, stripeZ light modules are also offered, which are significantly smaller than conventional LED headlights – with the same performance. This enables a particularly slim design as well as a wide range of new functional options. “The digital headlights on the new Range Rover reflect our current developments and technologies. Intelligent lighting systems increase comfort, enhance road safety and mark the way towards autonomous driving,” explains Oliver Schubert, CEO of the ZKW Group.
Smart premium light With ZKW’s “Digital Light Processing” (DLP) technology, the new Range Rover brings intelligent lighting functions to the road for the first time – in the form of dynamic projections. This is made possible by innovative LED modules with 1.2 million pixels whose light is directed via microscopically tiny, electronically controlled mirrors. As standard, the slim headlights provide stepless, glare-free high beam, which is controlled via a front camera and further enhances road safety. High-tech made in Austria The DLP lighting system for the new Range Rover is developed and manufactured by ZKW in Austria. For the first time, a 3-component injection molding technology is used, which allows the implementation of a novel daytime running light concept. ZKW also equips Jaguar Land Rover models with fog lights as well as the new Land Rover Defender with main headlights and the Land Rover Discovery Sport with rear lights.
