An ultra-modern car by Audi at CES 2013

A car that drives itself through the traffic and does the parking for you was showcased togheter with OLED headlights by German car brand Audi at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Audi also presented electronics systems to integrate the car with services such as Google Maps and Google Earth View as well as social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

OLED technology creates a continuous light surface

Audi engineers believe that piloted driving will soon allow drivers to let the car take control; in fact the self-driving technology will be able to stop and start the vehicle in slow-moving traffic, as well as manoeuvring it in and out of parking spaces.

An idea is also that cars could be networked to alert each other to hazards such as icy roads or heavy traffic, while communication with traffic lights would allow the vehicle to drive itself through green lights.

smartphone integration for maps and satellite views

LED headlights are already available in many car models, but at CES 2013 Audi unveiled its Matrix LED system, which uses a camera to locate the road and vehicles ahead so that it can rotate its headlights or lower the intensity of the beam when needed.

OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology would also turn the car’s rear into a continuous light surface with many tiny points moving together like a shoal of fish. The lights would flow to the right when the car turns right or flow rapidly forwards when it brakes, for example.

Last month Dezeen filmed a movie that showed how glowing walls, windows and furniture made from OLEDs could replace light bulbs and LEDs in homes.

They also recently reported that Audi is bringing its interior and exterior design studios together as part of its new design strategy.

They’ve also featured an ultra-lightweight chair developed in collaboration with Audi and a huge sculpture created for the car brand at a motoring festival – see all Deezen stories about Audi »
