The new Hyundai Tucson - The size of the LED lights was a challenge
When the new Hyundai Tucson is started, the ten LED elements integrated in the radiator grille light up. The size of the individual lights was a particular challenge for the engineers when it came to integrating the daytime running lights inconspicuously into their surroundings. For smaller LED elements, chrome layers are used between the LED and the light glass to create this camouflage effect. The chrome layer is applied to the LEDs in varying thicknesses and distances using a laser etching process. This gives the luminaire the appearance of a chrome-plated decorative element, but it is still translucent. This method can also be used for larger LED elements, but the lights and the parts surrounding them would no longer form a unit when the light is switched off.
