Lighting Emitting Diode (LED), a new generation semiconductor light source often referred to as Solid-State Lighting (SSL), has been broadly adopted in illumination, display, visualization, and other areas due to its higher efficacy and longer life. LEDs, first introduced for automotive interior applications such as indicators, expanded to exterior applications including center high mounted stop lamps and other automotive signal lighting devices. Today, LED technologies are being used for night vision, occupancy detection, and many other automotive application areas. This seminar is designed to provide the attendee with an overview of LEDs and their applications in automotive lighting and illumination.
This course has been approved by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR) for 6 Continuing Education Units (CEUs). Upon completion of this seminar, accredited reconstructionists should mail a copy of their course certificate and the $5 student CEU fee to ACTAR, PO Box 1493, North Platte, NE 69103.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This seminar can be of benefit to a wide audience including LED automotive body and system engineers responsible for lighting and vehicle interface and integration; vehicle stylists who are interested in lighting effects on vehicle cosmetics and lighting developers and manufacturers; marketing specialists who are interested in customers' preferences based on the relationship of human vision and lighting; and newcomers in the automotive industry who need to obtain a general overview of lighting.
Participants should have an undergraduate engineering or related degree.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
