The Automotive Safety System Market is on a rapid upward trajectory and is projected to reach USD 169.46 Billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 9.36% during the forecast period, according to research firm MarketsandMarkets. For Taiwanese companies delivering products that have great potential to increase driver safety, market opportunities abound.
Taiwan Excellence Auto Safety and Lighting Online Product Launch
Hosted by Mr. Simon Wang, Executive Vice President, TAITRA, Taiwan Excellence’s virtual product launch event cast a spotlight on improving vehicle safety as well as on five winners of the prestigious Taiwan Excellence Award – Lucidity Enterprise, Chu Hung Oil Seals Industrial (C.H.O.), Zealio Electronics, IEI Integration Corp., and WiseChip Semiconductor, Inc. – and their breakthrough products.
- Lucidity Enterprise – LED End Outline Marker Lamps
Taiwan’s largest manufacturer of trailer lights, Lucidity introduced innovative products that greatly reduce the damage of lights using rubber materials. With innovative GloTrac optical technology, the company’s new LED lamps improve safety by increasing visibility at night and reducing driver fatigue. Lucidity is capable of producing 55 million commercial vehicle lighting units a year.
- C.H.O. – Centurion Wheel Seal
Chu Hung Oil Seal Industrial’s new take on a wheel hub seal uses a labyrinth design to block sand and gravel from entering the cavity, significantly reducing oil leakage accidents in the transmission system. The seals are designed for heavy duty, truck trailer, agricultural machinery, and commercial vehicles.
- Zealio Electronics – Aurora 10 Wireless LED Module
While most interior lighting accessories in the automobile market are wire cable types, Zealio innovations in the development and manufacturing of wireless products led to its award-winning Wireless LED module. The company demonstrated the LED module’s use in a combination of a wireless welcome pedal (door sill) and door warning system.
- IEI Integration Corp. – Fatigue Driving Detection
In order to solve numerous vehicle problems and ensure driving safety, IEI’s focus is on integrating various AI technologies into its products. IEI’s newly-developed fatigue driving detection system records blinks and yawns and sounds an alarm to alert the driver if a certain threshold of drowsiness occurs.
- WiseChip Semiconductors, Inc. – Touch OLED Display Technology
WiseChip won the Taiwan Excellence award for its latest touch OLED display series products, which enable touch detection on existing display module structures. Its thinner stack-up structure enhances light transmittance and further improves the display quality of the panel, which is already characterized by high brightness, high contrast ratio, and wide viewing angle. WiseChip’s touch OLED display panels have many smart transportation applications such as heads-up displays, radar detectors and tire pressure detectors.
The 90-minute online product launch is part of a series of events held by TAITRA. The online stream of this event attracted about 78 international buyers and industrial media from Europe and the United States, including Aftermarket Intel from the United States, Vision Mobility from Germany, and Duessegi Editore in Italy.
Smart Transportation Virtual Pavilion
For global buyers and the public, Taiwan Excellence has also set up a “Smart Transportation Virtual Pavilion”, with virtual reality demonstrations of 55 award-winning products from 27 manufacturers. Already, the event has generated numerous connections between international buyers and Taiwan’s leading automotive safety companies. TAITRA and companies are enthusiastic about future cooperation opportunities.
