This week, Radiant will travel to Michigan to sponsor and participate in the annual Vehicle Displays Detroit Symposium & Expo. Experts from the Radiant global automotive solutions team will present a technical paper and demonstrate scientific imaging technologies for light and color measurement of displays used in all areas of the vehicle. With the automotive industry booming with new HMI trends, sensing, ADAS, and visualization technologies, Radiant’s automotive light and display measurement systems are now being applied to ensure design and production quality of all illuminated and digital components in consoles, instrument panels, windshields (HUD), mirrors (CMS), and virtually all visible spaces of a vehicle.

Customers of today’s consumer electronics devices expect a flawless product out of the box. Scratched, dented, and otherwise imperfect products can result in costly returns and warranty claims. Worse, visible defects damage your brand’s reputation and future business. Device manufacturers have employed machine vision systems and human inspectors to protect the quality of their products. Now, Advanced Vision solutions allow you to apply photometry-based surface inspection techniques that match the precision and discernment of the human eye, at automation speeds.

Microdisplaysscreens measuring less than two inches diagonallyhave been used in applications such projection TVs, smart watches, and near-eye displays (NEDs). Offering very high resolution and brightness coupled with low energy use, they are poised to become more widespread as augmented reality devices, head-up displays (HUDs), and and head-mounted displays (HMDs) are gaining wider use in industries from consumer electronics, to medicine, to the military.

Luminance, illuminance, luminous flux, intensity, brightness...how do we describe the qualities and brightness of light? We explain and discuss the spectrum of electromagnetic waves, including both visible (light) and invisible (e.g., radio, microwave), and how to quantify them with photometric or radiometric measurements.

Head-up diplays (HUDs) are becoming more common in both automobiles and airplanes, helping to increase safety and reduce distractions for drivers and pilots. In aviation, HUDs have been used for decades in military planes, and are fairly commonplace in large commercial aircraft. But to ensure that HUDs are serving their purpose effectively, there are multiple considerationsdesign, form factor, symbology, display quality—that have to be carefully addressed.
