Osram is unlocking the possibilities of next-generation photonics applications that are helping to shape the future, whether it’s autonomous vehicles that can “see” farther and more effectively, 3D sensing and facial recognition systems that provide greater security, or innovative horticulture lighting that improves food growth. Osram’s booth at this year’s CES will showcase its innovative technology for LED projection, biomonitoring, biometrics, LiDAR and interior/exterior automotive lighting.

Photonic, or light-based applications, use the photon in the same way that electronic applications use the electron. Because light travels faster than electrons, photonics can help create technologies that are smaller and faster, as well as more energy efficient and cost effective. Osram is leveraging these special qualities to revolutionize the technology industry and the everyday lives of consumers.

“Throughout our more than 110-year history, Osram has always embraced change. The ability to transform our business and constantly innovate has been key to our remarkable success and longevity,” said Stefan Kampmann, Chief Technology Officer, OSRAM Licht AG. “Today, as we turn our full attention to the photonics industry, we are proudly developing leading-edge solutions and technologies that continue to exceed expectations and improve the lives of people around the world.”

One such solution is Rinspeed’s MetroSnap concept vehicle, which will be featured for the first time in Osram’s booth as part of an advanced, interactive display that highlights the company’s visible and invisible lighting products. MetroSnap ushers in the future of driving, including autonomy, flexibility, connectivity, and advanced safety and comfort features. The electric vehicle’s modular design will be on full display with a live demonstration of the detachable “skateboard,” swapping “pods” for different applications such as grocery shopping. This is the fourth year Osram has joined forces with Rinspeed to take concept cars to the next level with its unique lighting solutions for tomorrow’s vehicles.

By developing advanced lighting concepts and components, Osram is championing and enhancing the human experience in four core areas:

Finally, Osram will launch its Osram Ostar Projection Power family, featuring LED technology that outperforms conventional lighting solutions and achieves outstanding projector brightness values.

Osram will showcase its innovative, lighting technologies at CES in booth 8516 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
