Safe mobility relies on lighting to see and be seen. Mobility depends on lighting and wipers, in all weather conditions, day and night.

The Valeo Light Division offers technologies that enhance vehicle visibility for drivers and other road users. The ongoing mobility revolution is accompanied by increased demand for these systems, with electric vehicles providing new opportunities in lighting design, and advanced vehicles requiring clean sensors to accurately collect data about their environment.
