Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s News & Insights for Aug. 9, 2023. Automotive lighting systems are making their way back into our field of view, with an upcoming webinar by Adura on thermal management solutions for advanced automotive LED designs, in addition to news on auto LED offerings from ams Osram. This week, a social media follower also pointed out that automotive headlamp glare is an issue with LED technology. Although the Aug. 24 webinar will not cover functional concerns like that, we did recently publish an article by Light and Health Research Center scientists Mark Rea and John Bullough on addressing and eliminating that very issue via advanced LED features and proper headlamp aiming.

Furthermore, while it’s not an automotive lighting issue per se, lighting engineer Claude Zhu brings us an excellent overview of the potential roadway dangers that improper deployment of digital billboards can cause. Zhu analyzes the visual discomfort, acuity, and distraction hazards, and examines existing metrics and regional guidance to suggest improved placement strategies.

Please stay in touch about content we publish and to propose contributed articles.
