Matrix Light - Automotive Product of the Year 2014 by the Elektronik trade journal
The OSRAM Matrix Light LED module has won the "Product of the Year 2014" award of the Elektronik trade magazine in its Automotive category. The readers of the journal gave the Matrix LED light first place among eleven innovative automotive products for this year.
For the sixteenth time now the readers of the Elektronik monthly magazine as well as users of the internet portal elektroniknet.de selected the "Products of the Year" from a total of 111 products in eleven different categories. The OSRAM Matrix Light module impressed as an "innovative, pioneering and smart top product", gaining first place in the automotive sector.
OSRAM Matrix Light is a module for so-called matrix headlights. It fulfills the complete range of functions for adaptive high beam light. Each individual LED in the module can be separately controlled and therefore be separately switched on and off or dimmed. In combination with a camera system and image-processing electronics, oncoming traffic and traffic ahead are recognized and fielded from glare. Because of the high quantity of pixels it is also possible that objects identified by the camera system (e.g. pedestrians, animals or obstacles) can be separately illuminated to draw the attention of drivers to these.
The monthly journal Elektronik automotive reports about future-oriented solutions, concepts and products in the automotive electronics sector. The readers of this sister publication of the Elektronik magazine were able for the first time to participate in voting for the "Product of the Year", selecting their favorites from the newly introduced Automotive category. The winning trophy was presented to OSRAM during the celebratory award ceremony on 27 March in Munich, Germany.
