Luminous Motion

Autonomous cars are driven through various sensors that allow the cars to be continually adjusted during their movement, even at night, making current automotive lamps irrelevant. What will happen to lighting design in the era of autonomous cars? With the advent of self-driving cars, designers will have many more opportunities to explore further possibilities in the automotive lighting world. Instead of the traditional relationship between the automotive lighting system and users, Luminous Motion aims to build up a new interactive relationship between lighting and passengers.
