The requirement of vehicle manufacturers for possibilities of differentiation on the one hand and the compelling technical necessity to provide low-profile lamp concepts on the other have led to a wide range of light guide applications being introduced in passenger vehicles in the past few years. This paper will provide a summary of light guide technology and illustrate the outlook for future lamp concepts using the example of non-contact switching. The paper also deals with the interaction of technical, design-oriented and ergonomic points of view during the creation of new products.
