Since the first vehicle appeared on the roads, safety remains one of the key topics in the automotive world. Many companies around the world have been working on safety improvements for drivers and other road users. While the obligation to wear a seat belt was one of the major improvements for cars in previous years, today car manufacturers, automotive suppliers and many governmental funded projects are doing detailed research into the development of new or improved safety systems, which are intended to decrease the impact and number of severe and lethal accidents.

We offer reliable optical semiconductors, which support active and passive safety systems. PIN Photodiode or APD Arrays are available with integrated TIAs as ‘Hybrid Detector’ and Infrared Laser diodes are used for laser distance measurement (LIDAR) systems, which use Time of Flight (TOF) or Phase Shift measurements. Fibre Optical Transceivers (FOTs) are used for safety systems, which work with special optical fibres, for example to protect pedestrians with a hood which automatically rises in the event of a collision.
