The Fraunhofer Institute developed and commercialized a lens-array based pico projector technology

Researchers from the Fraunhofer IOF institute developed an projection array that uses an LED pico projector that overlays many channels on one another, using a lens array on top of the LED projector. This enables simple images to be shown on any curved or slated surface.

This achievement was sponsored by BMW, that use it in the 2015 Series 7 BMW cars to create a light "carpet" four meters in length along the side of the car. The projector is embedded below the door, which is an advantage over other solutions that has to embed it in the door itself.
