Frühere Editionen

Am 23. Januar durften wir Dirk Verhaeghen, Senior Director Market Strategy OEM der Lumileds Germany GmbH, bei uns begrüßen:

LEDs for Automotive Lighting: Disruptive or Back to the Future Innovation

LED as new light source technology has disrupted the overall lighting market from general illumination towards display, mobile, automotive and other specialty applications. While this new technology enables a whole range of never before possible (‘disruptive’) application functionalities, full market adoption seems to be accelerated y reverting back (‘back to the future’) to industry’s proven cornerstones and standards. Also for the automotive market, where lighting is a general safety feature and therefore also highly regulated, we see these industry dynamics happening. After initially serving the early adoptors, the unmet needs of the mainstream market segment have to be addressed. At this moment the disruptive innovation kicks back into a ‘back to the future’ reality. The presentation elaborates on the actual business opportunity for standard LED bulbs and modules, enabling market adoption by cost effective solutions for the mainstream segments. What are the different requirements for this market innovation vs. the disruptive first of a kind solutions? How are the dynamics of the innovation cycle playing out and when are your customers in their regional markets actually ready for it? And what about future autonomous cars; do they need lighting at all?
