Abstract

The designs of the instruments of modern cars are often full of different scales and status or warning lights. Due to the limited space where all of those have to be placed, the options for different designs are very limited. Up to now there are a few ideas that help reducing the number of lights and give space for different arrangements of the instruments. For example the pointers for speed or the fuel gauge can be illuminated by LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) of different colors, as shown in figure 1, to save warning lights for high speed or low fuel.
