Human Centric Lighting Smooths Out the Rough Edges of Daylight Saving Time
One of our ambitions for these next-generation cars is to invest in technologies that improve the driving experience while also increasing the safety of drivers. In order to maximize the human driver experience, we take every aspect of personal comfort into consideration.
Among the emergence of these safety-centric technologies, automotive lighting plays a major role.
This white paper focuses on Infrared (IR) illumination for TOF systems using Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting LASERs (VCSELs) and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) and shows that LEDs are a feasible and affordable option as IR illuminators.
Dirk Vanderhaeghen, Senior Director of Lumileds OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Market Strategy, emphasizes future opportunities for lighting in electric and autonomous vehicles and stresses the importance of updating regulations to support ongoing innovation.
While many landmarks are best visited during the day, there are some destinations that truly transform at night due to the power of LED lighting. We have compiled a list of places to visit at night that you should add to your summer bucket list.
On Earth Day the focus is on environmental awareness and standing up for the environment. In 2018 this commitment is even more relevant for companies as the role of business is recognized as critical to achieving lasting environmental benefits.
Daylight Saving Time has been shown to have a detrimental effect on Americans across the country due to the disruption to one’s circadian clock. In fact, a 2016 study reported that “the overall rate for stroke was 8% higher in the two days after daylight savings time”, while the likelihood of stroke jumps to 20% during that time for people older than 65 (American Academy of Neurology).
As it relates to automotive, CES is one of the must-attend shows for innovators in the space. Many interesting automotive demos showcased upcoming technologies this year, and we thought we would summarize some of the high-tech solutions and emerging automotive trends related to connectivity and autonomous driving that stood out to us.
At CES 2018, Ford’s CEO James Hackett delivered the opening keynote speech, where he addressed how the future of smart cities will demand more of smart vehicles and how this will be driven by new enabling technologies, such as Automated Driving (AD), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT). There are a few key light sensing technologies enabling self-driving cars that we saw at CES that we think are worth keeping track of.
