Seminar: Manufacturing and Product Development

SEMINAR: Manufacturing and Product Development of 21st Century Street Lights


High performance LED technology and electronics manufacturing have combined to revolutionize the lighting industry. Where once a lamp and a luminaire could be assembled in “anyone’s garage”, modern lighting manufacturing requires the experience and processes of high-yield electronics assembly and manufacturing. This presentation will focus on product development and issues in the lighting industry. An industry where new technologies, modes of thinking, and products need to be created to fulfill the promise of the light emitting diode as the platform for the lighting of today and tomorrow.
