Abstract

A lighting system for a vehicle provides a combination of a light emitting diode (LED) and an organic light emitting diode (OLED) for use in a vehicle. The lighting system pairs an LED configured to provide accurate spot/task lighting (e.g. map lighting, etc.), with an OLED configured to provide broad area lighting (e.g. flood lighting, courtesy lighting, etc.). The combination of an LED light source with an OLED light source permits a single device to provide light in both a focused manner and in a flood manner to facilitate the lighting needs desired by occupants within the vehicle.
