Visions of the future for OSRAM


OSRAM aims to seize the opportunities of digitalization. Employees from all business areas are working on smart visions to make this a reality. An overview.

1. ADAPTIVE FRONT LIGHTING SYSTEM (μAFS)

For vehicles already on the road, μAFS technology uses 1,024 individually controllable pixels per LED chip plus sensors for intelligent light distribution. There is a wide range of future possible uses, for example in head-up
displays in vehicles, mobile devices and virtual reality glasses.

2. SMART CITY

Street luminaires will become smart hubs in cities of the future. Not only could they transform into navigation aids, but they could also regulate traffic as a whole and make it safer. In addition, they could provide  inhabitants with interesting information, such as oxygen levels in the air.

3. COLLISION PREVENTION THROUGH SENSORS

Urban transport of the future will be shaped by self-flying airplanes and self-driving vehicles. Thanks to optimum illumination with infrared components, sensors mounted on vehicles can safely detect objects and other transport users, whether in the air or on the road.

4 URBAN GREENHOUSES

Agriculture of the future will use smart LED light. With the addition of water and nutrients, plants grow in hydroponics. So why not in the refrigerator at home, too?

5. FOOD ANALYSIS

How much sugar is in the yogurt, and how many vitamins do the tomatoes have? The smart refrigerator of the future could be able to use infrared LEDs to analyze the nutritional value of our food – and even provide
custom dietary recommendations.

6. SMART BUILDING

In intelligent buildings of the future, light will be connected with other building functions, such as heating and air conditioning, security systems or elevators. They will interact with each other. Since light sources and their mains systems are present everywhere throughout buildings, lighting can play a key role in building automation.

7. HOLODECK – 3D PROJECTIONS OF PEOPLE

The holodeck, as known from Star Trek, could become reality in several years for virtual spaces, such as for business or leisure purposes.
