Autonomous self drive vehicle

At this year’s Auto Show AutoMobili-D 2018, Osram is showcasing how its high-power infrared pulse lasers are promoting the adoption of autonomous vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The company noted that its lasers are being used in a multitude of LIDAR applications from a wide variety of companies.

Lasers from Osram Opto Semiconductors featured in LIDAR and ADAS solutions from a broad range of companies are on display at AutoMobili-D 2018.

“Osram is pleased to be working with leading companies to enable widespread adoption of autonomous vehicles and ADAS, which will change the future of driving”, the company asserted.

Pulse laser diodes from the company have been featured in cars for more than 10 years for time-of-flight (TOF) measurements in adaptive cruise control (ACC) systems and automatic braking systems, as stated in the announcment.

At AutoMobili-D, Osram is showcasing its laser and LEDs in a number of innovative applications for autonomous vehicles and ADAS, including:

  • A long-range infrared 4D camera concept from Vergence Automation uses 190 Osram infrared LEDs. 4D imaging, when applied to autonomous vehicle use, will be a boon to computer vision, machine learning, and deep learning.
  • The GazeT Driver Monitoring Global Shutter Image Sensor Demo System from ON Semiconductor uses Osram’s 940 nm infrared LEDs.
