In today’s automobiles, versatile high-resolution touchpads have replaced analog gauges and knobs. Modern smart lighting adjusts to changing conditions. Radios have been replaced with multi-function, touch-sensitive infotainment displays. Generic sealed-beam and capsule headlamps have been superseded by stylish, aerodynamically-efficient, model-specific LED and HID headlamp assemblies. Head-up displays (HUDs) are becoming an automotive standard.
Emissive OLED, microLED (μLED), and miniLED are emerging as the next wave of technology in the display market. This is exciting because these displays promise improved display performance and visual appearance with greater efficiency than other display technologies, thanks to their individually emitting pixel elements. However, high costs due to material prices and manufacturing yield issues have hindered widespread technology adoption for these displays.
Imaging systems are highly efficient visual inspection tools, enabling contextual analysis of the complete area of a display, including deviations in luminance, color, and other characteristics. The process of converting light into digital input to create an image, however, is not precisely one-to-one. Imaging sensor types accomplish this conversion process in different ways, each with distinct benefits and limitations.
OLEDs (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes) are emerging as the next wave of technology in the flat-panel display market. This is exciting because OLED displays promise improved display appearance for both smartphones and large-format TVs at lower cost and power than other display technologies.
This paper discusses 3D sensing and how NIR light is used for facial recognition systems. It explains the importance of measuring radiant intensity of NIR emissions and the challenges of obtaining accurate measurement to ensure the quality of facial recognition systems in devices such as smartphones, laptops, and automobiles. It introduces Radiant's integrated NIR Intensity Lens solution and outlines the solution's advantages for evaluating NIR emitters for use in consumer products.

Today, customers expect flawless electronic devices right out of the box. Scratched, dented, and otherwise imperfect products can result in damage to your brand reputation and future business. How can you ensure consistent visual quality, i.e., the cosmetic appearance, of delivered products?
Consumers of electronics expect a flawless device right out of the box. Scratches, dents, smudges or other imperfections can damage your brand's reputation or result in product returns. Manufacturers typically rely on human inspectors for visual quality control, but humans can be subject to fatigue and inconsistency. Radiant's surface inspection solution—part of our Advanced Vision suite—combines the speed and repeatability of automation with the acuity of true human vision.

Human perception is the ultimate standard for determining the visual quality of a device. However, the use of human inspection as a quality control method for development or production of devices is problematic because of the statistical variation between observers.
Radiant technologies are thoughtfully engineered to achieve the fastest, simplest, and most accurate measurements of light, color, and surfaces. Imaging colorimeters and photometers leverage scientific-grade CCDs, high resolution, low noise, and factory calibration to ensure consistency of data across R&D to production. Utilizing photopic filters, Radiant cameras acquire absolute luminance and color information to qualify devices against human visual perception.
