  • In-cabin 3D driver monitoring system based on advanced infrared emitters and image sensors, and incorporating Smart Eye software for detecting phenomena such as driver distraction or drowsiness
  • Interior lighting – the new OSIRE® E5515 LED – side-looking automotive RGB LEDs in thin, smart structures using an innovative in-mold process and validated for use in IMSE® technology from TactoTek
  • Exterior lighting – a full-width rear lamp system which is just 5 mm deep, based on SYNIOS® P1515 side-looker LEDs

Industry area

  • Optical technologies for next-generation robotics: ranging and localization technologies include the new TMF882x direct time-of-flight sensors, an active stereo vision 3D mapping demonstration in collaboration with partner Teknique, and a structured lighting system using ams OSRAM dot pattern illuminators
  • UV-C air- and water treatment demonstrators combine robust and efficient UV-C LED emitters with the new AS7331 3-channel spectral UV-A/-B/-C sensor, so systems can accurately monitor UV-C dosage and detect the bioluminescence of bacteria
  • Smoke detector based on the AS7343 spectral sensor which can distinguish the smoke generated by different types of fire

Horticulture area

  • Discover the new standard for professional horticulture applications. Flexible and efficient designs for top-/ inter-lighting and vertical farming solutions for greenhouses.
  • Optimum crop yield through tunable light - possible with our efficient horticulture LEDs OSLON® Square and OSLON® Optimal - shown using the example of vertical farming.
  • Closed-loop optimization of horticultural lighting with a combination of award-winning OSLON® Square LED with Batwing lens and the AS7343 14-channel spectral sensor

Mobile, wearables and vital sign area

  • Demonstration of a reference design of a smart watch which can accurately measure vital signs such as heart rate, ECG and blood pressure 24/7
  • Latest behind-OLED ambient light and proximity sensing
  • Smart glasses based on the breakthrough Vegalas miniature laser infrared projection system

Conference highlights:

The Optical Revolution: How Light and Sensors are Redefining the Concept of Driving

At the electronica Automotive Conference on November 14, Pierre Laboisse, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing Group provided the delegates with insights into the way the combination of smart lighting and optical sensing technologies are set to transform the operation of the vehicle of tomorrow. He described how optical solutions allow cars to communicate with their environment, take over driving functions, monitor passengers, and enhance passengers’ well-being, comfort and enjoyment of entertainment. He also explained the new potential for transforming the user’s experience of mobility by describing new developments in intelligent forward lighting, ambient lighting, in-cabin sensing, LiDAR for automated vehicles, intelligent signaling, advanced displays, and smart surfaces.

Semiconductor Companies Shaping the Transformation of the Healthcare Industry with Optical Solutions

At the Smart MedTech Forum on November 16, Jens Milnikel, Executive Vice President and General Manager BU Image Sensor Solutions, will discuss how semiconductor companies shape the transformation of the healthcare industry with optical solutions. He will outline his vision on a new era of personal healthcare and how ams OSRAM sees precision medicine as one of the core pillars of its future strategy, and can shape it with solutions like vital signs monitoring, ultra-accurate temperature measurements, advanced UVC solutions and innovative medical imaging technology.
