One LED diode can respond 150 milliseconds faster than an incandescent bulb. This fact can be a positive point specially at high speeds. That means at the 120 km/h speed when you’re for ahead vehicle push the brake pedal, by turning the braking light on, you can react to it five meters earlier. Also, inside the car there are some alarm lights on the top of the dashboard. Magnolia Paredes, head of Electronic Lighting Development at SEAT reveals the intention of company for such an Idea.
