ams OSRAM showcasing sensor portfolio at Sensors Converge 2021

ams OSRAM of Premstaetten/Graz, Austria and Munich, Germany is exhibiting its latest sensing technology at Sensors Converge in San Jose’s McEnery Convention Center (21-23 September) – the first time that it is exhibiting in the USA together following ams’ acquisition of OSRAM in March. The firm is showcasing a comprehensive range of sensor solutions targeted at numerous industries including automotive, healthcare, mobile, industrial and horticulture.

Demonstrations will take place in the Willow Glen I and II meeting rooms in the San Jose Marriott Hotel next to the event. ams OSRAM is showcasing its 3D sensing and infrared lighting technologies for industrial robots and autonomous vehicles (AVs). The interaction between infrared light and the corresponding sensors is essential to create a 3D view of the vehicles’ surroundings. ams OSRAM reckons that it is the only company in the market that provides both vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) and edge-emitting lasers (EELs) for infrared light, as well as time-of-flight (ToF) and global shutter image sensors.

The firm is also presenting its latest technologies in other industries, including:

  • a biosensor for vital sign monitoring in smartwatches, as well as spectral sensors for lateral flow testing and point-of-care diagnostics;
  • a UV-C LED with sensors that can safely disinfect areas by destroying harmful viruses and bacteria, while detecting human presence;
  • a new capacitive sensor for hands-on detection that can help automakers comply with the UN Regulation 79;
  • NanEye – reckoned to be the smallest digital camera – which can be used in medical and consumer applications;
  • horticulture sensors that enable spectral balancing of LEDs and daylight harvesting to assure an optimal yield and support energy and cost savings.

In addition, on 21 September at 12-12:15pm PDT, senior marketing manager Joerg Wertli is give a Tech Talk ‘3D Sensing Enables New Industrial Applications’, both onsite at the event in the Tech Talk Lounge and streaming online. Wertli will discuss how 3D optical systems, in combination with machine learning algorithms, have significant growth potential in industrial mass markets, increasing productivity of a factory’s production system through improved safety, flexibility and autonomy.
