As a constant innovator in terms of design and safety, Valeo has developed products which consume less power in order to help decrease CO2 emissions.
The focus here is on the use of L.E.D.s for signaling functions. L.E.D.s have a fast response time which reduces the braking distance of the following driver by 5m at 90km/h.
Furthermore, rearlighting with L.E.D.s helps to save 0.5g CO2/km compared to Tungsten bulbs Automotive bulbs are still the most used light sources for rearlamps and frontlamps, but penetration obtained with L.E.D. technology for signaling products is even stronger than it is for headlamps.
Light Emitting Diodes (L.E.D.s) provide a very efficient light source which consumes less power than normal Tungsten bulbs with extended design possibilities thanks to their compact size.
