CES 2023 Innovation Award for the Digital headlamp system SSL

The Digital headlamp system, an innovative automotive lighting technology

  • The world's first high-resolution headlamp based on matrix LED technology
  • Implementation of new, safety-relevant lighting functions by means of intelligent control of up to 25,000 LEDs per chip
  • Light module achieves up to 75% reduction of installation space

FORVIA, the world’s 7th largest automotive technology company combining Faurecia and HELLA, has received the prestigious CES 2023 Innovation Award in the category "Vehicle Tech & Advanced Mobility" as "Honoree" for its digital, chip-based "Solid State Lighting | High Definition" (SSL | HD) headlamp system. HELLA's SSL | HD technology represents an evolutionary development in LED matrix systems: with this innovation, the light source is further miniaturized to deploy up to 25,000 LED pixels per chip in a significantly reduced installation space. This not only provides better illumination of the road, but also enables new lighting functionalities such as the projection of safety distances or lane markings onto the road. The reduction of the installation space required for the light module by up to 75 percent creates completely new possibilities for integrating the headlamp into the vehicle architecture. Series production of the world's first SSL | HD headlamp has recently started at HELLA.


"We are driven by the ambition to keep pushing the boundaries of what is feasible in automotive lighting technology and thus ensure greater safety, efficiency and comfort in road traffic," says Yves Andres, who as a member of the Management Board is responsible for HELLA's global lighting business. "It is therefore a great honor to be recognized for our SSL | HD headlamp technology with the prestigious CES 2023 Innovation Award. After all, the Consumer Electronics Show has been a major focus point for innovations and the latest technologies for many years, and its importance has long since extended beyond consumer electronics."

Hosted by the Consumer Technology Association, the CES Innovation Awards is an annual competition that recognizes outstanding design and technology in 28 product categories. Winners are selected by a highly decorated panel of judges. CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is one of the world's largest trade shows, especially for consumer electronics. It will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada from 5 to 8 January 2023 (media days: 3 and 4 January).


At CES, FORVIA will showcase a total of 16 new products spread over its strategic levers: Electrification and energy management, Safe and automated driving, and Personalized experiences in a digital & sustainable cockpit. Come and visit us at our booth CP3 at Central Plaza!


On January 4th, a press conference with Patrick KOLLER, CEO of Faurecia, will be held at 9h00 A.M. local time at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, USA.
