Lighting solutions using new light-responsive materials to create new decorative effects or information displays inside the vehicle cabin.
What we are looking for:
To provide our Peugeot, Citroën and DS customers with technical solutions that can produce new lighting effects inside the vehicle using materials of varying degrees of transparency.
Desired effects include long-lasting luminosity, indirect lighting, lighting via novel materials and magical effects.
Materials proposed can include transparent or diffusive (semi-transparent or cloudy) plastics, with added chemical components to make them fluorescent or phosphorescent.
The light used can be in the visible or invisible (e.g. infrared) spectrum, but must be guaranteed to be innocuous for our customers.
Proposed solutions must meet automotive specifications. In particular, they need to operate across a broad temperature range (-40° à +85°), and be highly durable (with no degradation in intensity and longevity and no substantial alteration in colours over at least 10 years).
The cost of these solutions must be low enough that they can be included in mass-market vehicle offerings.
