The Web-based smart phone app for designers of exterior automotive lighting—called the Automotive Signal LED Selector—is available for use with the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry OS, or any device with a Web browser.

Osram has developed a Web-based smart phone app for designers of exterior automotive lighting called the Automotive Signal LED Selector. Available for the iPhone, Android, or Blackberry OS, or any device with a Web browser, the tool provides lighting designers and engineers with a mobile, convenient, and easy-to-use tool to select the right LEDs for the application. Designers and engineers can quickly and easily select LEDs by function, color, regulatory requirements, luminosity, and the number of LEDs required. “As demand for LEDs in exterior signal and forward lighting increases, we saw the need for a portable tool that enables simplified calculations for function-specific LED selection,” said Mike Godwin, Director, Visible LEDs, Osram Opto Semiconductors Inc. “The Automotive Signal LED Selector is a mobile extension of Osram’s extensive know-how in automotive LED selection, offering access to the latest advances in LED technology.” Applications in the tool include center high mounted stop lamps, daytime running lights, front fog/park/position/turn lights, high/low beams, rear fog/park/position/stop/turn lights, and reverse and side marker/turn indicators.

In the ongoing design and engineering crusade that is vehicle lightweighting, grams count. In some cases, tenths of a gram count. Regardless of how fuel price has moderated in the U.S. in recent years, the importance of global platforms and global markets means the drive to create more mass-efficient vehicle structures, subassemblies and components continues unabated.
Cab doors that open 180° thanks to a new hinge design are one innovative feature on the recently unveiled 2017 Titan King Cab model.
Still riding on a separate hydroformed-steel ladder frame (itself redesigned and CAE-optimized for greater strength and lower mass), the new eight-passenger SUV sheds up to 300 lb (136 kg) compared with the incumbent model. The mass reduction enabled Ford engineers to move to a powertrain format using only the 3.5-L turbocharged V6 with auto stop-start and 10R80 10-speed automatic.
