Let’s talk about one of the 3 divisions of OSRAM, which has been trying to make light more efficient for exactly 111 years. Osram Digital Systems, which we call Osram LED Driver; It offers us innovation in the fastest way, with a highly energy efficient, durable, low-maintenance, and most importantly, top quality that helps to minimize lighting costs.

Human Centric Lighting, which focuses on people and is the most suitable light for their needs, considering the role of lighting here, has become more and more important considering that we do not see daylight in the modern working world until a few years ago, and that we are constantly exposed to lights at the same lux level. (HCL) has emerged with the groundbreaking concept. While searching for the answer to the question of how I can apply Human-Centered Lighting, ready-made solutions in the Osram Digital Systems product portfolio have already been put into use with all their components so that you only have to install them, and you can see examples in many places.

Developed to provide the right amount of light at the right time, the ASTRO DIM feature continues to illuminate your city’s parks and gardens according to the sunrise and sunset for years.

You are now confident in using energy-saving light in areas such as production facilities, offices, conference rooms, training rooms and corridors. Both sensors that regulate the light intensity according to the movements of people and the presence of light in the environment, as well as dali sensors, have been used for a very long time. You are now sure that your money is not wasted thanks to the free applications that can be downloaded from your smartphones in a very simple and reliable way, allowing you to manage your light with a few finger movements. These were the examples of practices that have existed since yesterday and that we all have mastered.

What about the future of light? What awaits us in the future, based on LED technology and far beyond lighting? There is so much more to discover here!

In December 2017, we made a trip to Osram’s headquarters in Munich. The first stop of our 3-day tour with the pioneers of the Turkish LED lighting industry was World of Light, Munich, shown in the first image of our article. Here, we talked about the places where LED technology will take us tomorrow, and tried the application examples.

Have you heard of Mobile Food Analysis? Here, we will also touch on Osram Opto Semiconductors, one of Osram’s other business lines, which produces LED Chips. Imagine being able to analyze the calorie count of your breakfast, lunch and dinner, the nutritional value, how fresh your vegetables, your medicines are. Thanks to Osram Opto Semiconductors’ new broadband infrared LED, you can.

What about smart cities? On a sensor-based basis, a wireless network using streetlights as an access network can detect vacant parking spaces or measure traffic density. Data captured with this “Beacon” type technology can be used to guide drivers to empty parking lots or to guide traffic flows from urban areas. This, in turn, will increase a city’s attractiveness for visitors and businesses, and help prevent unnecessary vehicle movements and pollution caused by drivers seeking parking spaces.
