Sensor solutions

Leading manufacturers around the globe rely on ams OSRAM sensing know-how for advanced systems design.

ams OSRAM sensor solutions

ams OSRAM sensor solutions are at the heart of the products and technologies that define our world today – from smartphones and wearable devices to smart homes and buildings, industrial automation, medical technology, and connected vehicles. Our products drive applications requiring small form factor, low power, highest sensitivity and multi-sensor integration. Our ambient light, color, spectral and proximity sensors are ideal for mobile and wearable devices, are becoming ubiquitous across a growing number of fields.

Our 3D sensors range all three technologies – structured light, time of flight, and active stereo vision – for greater flexibility and choice. Our CMOS imaging sensors feature high frame rates for a wide range of demanding professional and industrial applications. Our high performance sensors are a key enabler for the multitude of evolving applications needing face recognition, biometric authentication, gesture recognition, robotics navigation, advanced driver assistance systems, and in AR/VR. Our precise and miniaturized sensors for digital health are optimal for temperature, vital sign sensing an even highly-reliable diagnostic technologies, like reusable lateral flow test devices. While our sensing solutions for x-ray and computed tomography (CT) enable crystal clear images with a low dose of radiation.
