Your reliable partner for optical solutions that take automation to the next level.

Making machines smarter, more autonomous and more effective in their interaction with humans

Optical solutions for the segment ‘industrial’ cover a wide range of applications: from factory automation and material processing, access control and security all the way to appliances and tools. Although these applications are fundamentally different they all need to realize similar functions such as object or presence detection, material categorization or processing, condition monitoring, human machine interfaces and many more. On product level they differ on aspects like provided optical power or sensitivity, supported optical spectrum or integration level. As an example, high power lasers can be either used for cutting and welding or for stimulating substances for spectral analysis in diagnostic systems. 

In addition, next generation machines and devices rely on smart sensing technologies to provide the right data for highly adaptive artificial intelligence or machine learning based control algorithms. ams OSRAM products complement or further enhance the required sensing infrastructure by capabilities that can be offered only by advanced optical sensing solutions: vision systems in visual and near-infrared light spectrum consisting of global shutter imagers paired with LED or laser-based scene illumination, highly accurate time-of-flight based proximity sensors, multi-channel spectral sensors for distinguishing between materials or moisture levels represent just a few examples. 

Sensing technologies essential to realize Industry 5.0 automation goals could often be used also for advanced user experience and machine capabilities in residential environments.

The application overviews below provide a more detailed insight into the solution opportunities which can be unlocked by ams OSRAM’s differentiated product portfolio.
