CES 2017: OSRAM shows new smart automotive technologies

With new smart technologies OSRAM reaches the next stage in automotive lighting. Future lighting technologies should be efficient. Above all, it should also provide for more safety when driving. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas from 5th to 8th of January 2017, OSRAM will showcase its latest high-tech vehicle applications: “Laser-based car lighting is much brighter and enables a doubled high-beam range. The improved down-road visibility and clarity for the drivers increases safety for all on the road,” said Olaf Berlien, CEO of OSRAM Licht AG. The fatality rate of night-time travel is up to four times that of day-time travel. A glare-free full-beam is another of OSRAM’s solutions to enhance visibility. In addition to laser technology, advanced pixel headlights represent the future of automotive lighting. Together with partners, OSRAM developed a tiny LED matrix chip with more than 1,000 individually controllable pixels. A headlight comprising several such LED chips allows permanent driving with glare-free full beam.
