Mitsubishi Electric Introduces Road-illuminating Directional Indicators
Innovative automotive lighting systems are drawing attention with their capability to effectively reduce accidents. According to the research by Institute for Traffic Accident Research and Data Analysis, 70 percent of pedestrian fatalities on roads happen at night. Market initiatives to use lighting sources for safer roadway environments are expected to increase from US\\$6.3 billion in 2013 to US\\$10 billion by 2022, according to the Fuji Chimera Research Institute, Inc.
In particular, small, affordable LEDs are expected to be used in increasingly sophisticated lighting systems.
Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will continue to develop practical lighting concepts and technologies to further enhance automotive safety and accident prevention.
