Active LED illumination for clothing and equipment

LED illumination for clothing and accessories

Even though we live in a high-tech world, it can still be difficult to see pedestrians, cyclists, runners and outdoor workers when visibility is poor – especially in the evening or at nighttime. This poses major risks to personal safety. Reflectors, which react to incident light, are only effective up to a point, especially given the growing popularity of smart headlights that actually dim as soon as they sense a moving object.

The time has come to focus on improving the visibility and safety of workers. OSRAM has developed a defining innovation to illuminate clothing and accessories such as helmets, back-packs and school bags using LED lights. Providing active illumination, OSRAM’s LED modules are available in a variety of colors and configurations and they can be washed* with the garment.
