BMW to user laser diodes for energy-efficient and brighter headlights
The automobile industry today is desperately trying to wipe itself clean of carbon footprints, and the answer seems to lie in hybrid and electric cars, with gas-powered cars slowly being shouldered off the road. BMW has come up with a great way to save up on energy with laser headlights. Today, LED technology is being used on a pretty wide scale by automobile manufacturers for headlights, and using lasers instead could provide a further energy-efficiency boost for cars, given that laser diodes are twice as efficient and a whole lot brighter than conventional LED headlights! BMW will also include the Dynamic Light Spot technology in its future cars, using lasers for a marker light system that automatically illuminates pedestrians, helping drivers keep away from accidents during darkened hours.
And given that laser diodes use a lot less energy than LEDs and conventional headlights being used today, saving the battery energy of your car will seem like a breeze, making electric and hybrid cars a lot more efficient!
