ISAL 2019 Takeaways

Here are ten key points we retain from the two days of lectures, panel discussions, keynote speeches, and poster presentations:

  • Technical constraints that confined to high/low beam systems have been removed by ADB, which is expanding into high-volume, popular-price models. The high/low-beam binary which has never been good enough for the job is obsolete; how long it takes to die out remains to be seen.
  • Recent ISALs had a strong focus on ADB, mostly looking at systems and ideas for 8, 16, and 32 segments. This year was different: still a predominant focus on ADB, but on high-resolution systems, no longer with a few segments.
  • Road image projections for new kinds of turn signal and reversing lamp repeaters, vehicle-width guidance through lanes narrowed by construction, and other such driver-aid functions are under very active development.
  • Visual communication using front and rear lights to help pedestrians and other drivers is another area of strong developmental interest.
  • Displays for V2X communication and brand communication are arriving.
  • Monolitic SSL, µLED will be more and more used to make ADB, road projections and visual communications.


  • Regulations must be modernised to be technology-neutral for robust resistance to obsolescence and must be harmonised for worldwide standardisation. Testing methods, too, must keep up with new technology so as to assure the measurements are in accord with the actual, effective performance.
  • Laser and OLED are rapidly being developed and commercialised in ways that overcome technical and technological challenges reported as recently as last year.
  • Integration of sensors as camera and lidarw will be used in the future.
The convergence of ADAS, AD, and lighting systems carries on at an accelerating pace.
  • Software will become more and more important in lighting with a change of value chain.
