Brief: To replace the conventional in-door ambient and tail warning light with a projector light. to represent a high quality Mercedes three-pointed star logo.
The challenge was to design the projector unit to fit into the limited space available for the ambient and tail warning lights. Given the limited space and short projection distance, an imaging system was required with a very short focal length. Both the lenses and slide had to be precision-engineered and carefully assembled in order to achieve high image quality. A camera-based inspection system was used for series production validation.
