The Eviyos prototype developed by Osram Opto Semiconductors
is the world’s first hybrid LED, and represents progress toward the first market-ready smart controllable high-resolution LED. As soon as oncoming traffic is detected, the appropriate pixels are automatically switched off so drivers of oncoming vehicles are not dazzled. The prototype, integrated in a demonstrator from Osram Specialty Lighting, will be on show for the first time at ISAL from Sept. 25-27, 2017 in Darmstadt.
Eviyos has its basis in the µAFS research project, which was completed in the fall of 2016. The project involved various partners from the industrial sector and was coordinated by Osram Opto Semiconductors. The prototype combines two technologies in one component: a light emitting chip and individual pixel control electronics. Customers can vary the number of hybrid LEDs in their applications and supplement them with conventional LEDs. The only pixels that are ever on are the ones that are actually needed at the time.
