designLED CTO Dr. James Gourlay was delighted to join an esteemed lineup of speakers at the ISELED Virtual Conference on 03.09.2020, the first in a season of upcoming industry web conferences.
His talk was a short discussion about why designLED have joined the alliance. He made it clear that from designLED’s experience of lighting in the automotive industry, that an alliance like ISELED has been needed to develop and prove the new LED technologies, set standards and importantly, derisk the deployment of LED lighting into the new and emerging automotive Use Cases.
James was very pleased to see that the ISELED alliance is expanding and with an even wider range of companies and organisations covering many different aspects of the value chain. The first ISELED cars have gone into serial production in China and there are plans for more. This is an important step forward.
He was also interested in the ILaS bus concept (ISELED Light and Sensor network), which is an extension of the original ISELED protocol. With ILaS not only LED elements, but also other components such as matrix LED lights, sensors and actuators can be controlled in large numbers via a simple two-wire connection. This also supports designLED technology which allow the integration of sensors and other intelligence into the light tile device itself, creating a smart and intelligent system from a relatively dumb light source.
It is inspiring to share and discuss the latest innovations in the automotive lighting industry, despite ongoing challenging global circumstances. Next up on our conference agenda is the prestigious DVN Smart Interior Virtual Conference & Expo Platform on 24.09.2020, which will include a designLED virtual booth and a talk on Interior Surface Backlighting from CTO Dr.James Gourlay.
