Solutions for the Challenges of the 21st Century
Mobility, Safety & Security, Connection as well as Well-being & Health: these are the central areas in which we tirelessly search for the answers to the big questions of the 21st century. How are we to feed around 10 billion people on the planet in 2050? How does urban living and traffic work if 70 percent of people live in cities? How can we save our vital resources? And how can we ensure data protection and access security in a digital world?
OSRAM makes a key contribution to resolving the problems of today. Our products and services will help people to see better, communicate better, move better, work and live better, now and in the future.
Continuously Developing the Technologies as the Goals Stay the Same
Improving people’s lives has always been what drives us: since the introduction of the first electric light almost 100 years ago, we have been making our cities better places to live in.
With our first car headlights we ensured greater safety in road traffic early on. Thanks to our products, projectors made movie theaters a place where people could come together. And with the first therapy lamps we were contributing to people’s health way back in the 1930s. Light used to be mainly about illumination.
Today, digitalization opens up a variety of new possibilities extending far beyond a simple “On” and “Off” of light sources. Today we turn light into more than illumination – we now use the seemingly endless possibilities of light to improve people’s lives. Today we are #TheNewOSRAM.
Moving Beyond Illumination Towards Visualization, Sensing and Treatment
OSRAM is evolving from the leading lighting producer to the high-tech champion of photonics. Photonics covers the entire technological range of visible and invisible light.
Our high-quality LEDs, for example, are used for visualization in automotive applications. We supply infrared and laser light for sensing, as the basis of autonomous driving or face recognition in smartphones, for example. And with lighting solutions for the treatment of plants we promote optimum growth. Our technological possibilities seem virtually endless.
