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.
