Firm to reach into strategic markets beyond illumination with “Photonics for a Smarter Life” innovations in Las Vegas.Osram has announced that it will be returning to the forthcoming Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (“CES”) to present its latest technologies that are designed for a range of applications including mobility; connectivity; safety and security; and well-being and health.
Osram’s latest offerings include what it describes as “technologies beyond visible illumination to enable self-driving vehicles, and advanced driver assistance systems, and biometric identification applications”.
In addition to automotive lighting technologies, Osram will showcase horticultural sensing and lighting solutions, as used by NASA researchers, and will demonstrate how the right light at the right time can improve our quality of life.
How will it do this? It says, through applications such as “Human Centric Lighting” (HCL) technology, which has been used by world-class athletes and racecar drivers. HCL applications will be demonstrated in Osram’s booth at CES with devices such as the Chronogy Human Centric eyewear and a dynamic HCL ceiling.
Osram’s textile products, including backpacks and vests with embedded illumination to increase visibility for safety purposes, also will be demonstrated at CES; and the company will show building space optimization applications for facilities managers and employees via a mobile app.
Additionally, two of Osram’s Chronogy HCL chairs, which provide users with specific doses of light to achieve the desired human outcome, such as cool, bright light to increase levels of alertness, or amber light to help a person wind down at the end of the day, will be demonstrated.
Stefan Kampmann, CTO of Osram Licht, commented, “Our investments into research and development, as well as our M&A strategy, position us as offering innovative technologies in a range of markets and applications designed to help improve quality of life.”
