Photonics for future mobility

For more than 40 years, Hamamatsu Photonics has been supplying market-leading, high-quality and extremely reliable optical components that contribute to the advancement of vehicle safety, comfort and green technologies, as well as products to improve the manufacturing and automation of critical automotive components.

 

From design to manufacturing, we deliver standard and customized solutions with high-volume manufacturing capabilities. Many vehicles use our ambient light sensors for automatic lighting and air conditioning, as well as our optical semiconductor devices for optical links used for in-vehicle networks. Technology for autonomous vehicles and advanced driving support systems is developing at a fast pace. Sensing technologies for detecting the distance between cars and surrounding obstacles have become increasingly important for LiDAR.

 

With Hamamatsu’s semiconductor failure analysis systems and x-ray inspection products, we are ready to provide tools that will support the next generation of electric vehicles and more advanced features needed for autonomous vehicle technology.

 

Look to Hamamatsu Photonics as a one-stop-shop for all your photonic needs now and in the future.
