Rich document New Infrared LED from Osram for 2D Facial Recognition
Smartphones, tablets and the like can now be unlocked in very different ways: with a password, fingerprint scan or even an iris scan. 2D facial recognition is another method and involves illuminating the user’s face with an infrared light source and capturing the image with an IR camera. The system then compares the image with the images previously stored for the purposes of identification, focusing on characteristic two-dimensional features. If there is a match for the various data such as the width of the mouth, length of the nasal ridge and distance between the eyes then the device will be unlocked.
Rich document A Revolution in Optics from IQ Structures
Brand new revolutionary lenses for luminaires come to the market under the trade name NANOPTIQS. This is a completely new approach to designing and manufacturing lenses using calculated surface nano- and micro-structures.
Rich document Selteka Introduces Skylighter Luminaires for Biodynamic, Enhanced Human Centric Lighting

Rich document 100 Years Lighting IP Applications
These IP Snapshots show approximately 100 years of patent applications of the IPC class F21 lighting and the IPC class H05 electric techniques. Both IPC classes are the most relevant in the lighting domain. Annually, over 60,000 applications are filed globally and an increasing number of IP applications is predicted over the next few years. Lighting, in general, and the electronics are, therefore, quite similar in numbers.
