Car beautification has reached another level with the advent of LED lighting. LED lighting has a very colourful and unique characteristic that can be manipulated for beautification of landscapes, rooms, cars and any object worth beautifying.
It is now very possible to light up any place as long as the designer is sure of himself. LED lighting can add colour and aura that make a car looks cools and attractive to a potential buyer or just anybody. LED lighting tubes are now being used by car interior decorators to make the car a sight to behold especially in the night.
Lighting is one of the most important aspects of any vehicle, particularly of a car, which helps you traverse long distances safely, especially when visibility is low either during nighttime or the foggy winter season.
Hence, it is pertinent to ensure that your vehicle is equipped with the best of lighting facility. The latest rage in car lighting is car LED lights. LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. These are sources of illumination, which you can place both inside and outside your vehicle as per your requirement.
It is very important to note that light or lighting plays an important role in the survival of humanity. And as result, many inventors have come up with ideas to mimic the natural daylight at night. However, over the years, many inventions have been overtaken by technological advancement. Light affect the totality of human existence especially where reflection and visibilities are a major concern.
Light is also needed in the cars for easy and smooth operation by the drivers. The old incandescent lights were being used, but because of its low power output and its high energy consumptions, they were eventually replaced by LED lights which stand for Light- Emitting Diodes. LED lights are a kind of low emission lighting that does not have many of the problems associated with incandescent lights. It is very useful in the cars and homes.
Based on the customization and user application, LED are generally of three types; miniature LED, High Power LED and Application based LED.
Miniature led lights are those available in very small size and are used mostly in hand-held devices like cell phone, Personal Digital Assistants etc. High powered LED lights are generally used at industrial level. These are used in scientific research, engineering works and in mechanical fields, etc. The name is self explanatory that LED are high powered; its performance is enhanced! Application based LED lights are ideal example of customization. Since LED technology can be available in different sizes, shapes and its performance can be moderated; LED is used in multiple sectors. All these LED lights are termed as application based LED.
If you do a lot of boondocking (no hookups while camping), then you know battery life is one of the most important things you must plan for, especially if you have a small battery bank. One great way to save a lot of power is to convert your existing incandescent lighting to LED lighting. LED stands for light emitting diode and provides light in a very different way than incandescent or fluorescent lighting sources. The biggest benefit for a boondocker is that LEDs require very little power to operate, so you won’t have to be so conscious of switching off lights when you don’t need them.
Just how much power can you save by going LED? In a typical travel trailer of say 27 feet with a super slide and a couple of bunk beds, you may have upwards of 20+ 12 watt incandescent bulbs. If you were to have all of these on at one time, you would be drawing around 20 amps of DC power. In a few hours, your single group 24 12-volt battery would be near dead. Even if you had two batteries, you wouldn’t have much left to finish out a 2-day weekend without a battery recharge.
Finally there is a motorcycle LED light kit designed specifically for sport bikes, “The Sport Bike Kit”.
Sport Bikes are attractive and aggressive machines that, on their own, command attention. They are eye-catching, fast, and becoming more and more popular among both new and experienced riders. Now, with LED light kits designed specifically for them they are sure to be show stoppers.
The DARPA 2005 Challenge is a once in a lifetime chance for robotic engineers, companies and engineers to show their stuff. What is learned during such contests probably saves the Department of Defense hundreds of millions in Research and Development costs. To the taxpayers this is exceptional news indeed.
Recently I had a conversation with one of the teams, which is poised to win this years contest, although many would agree upon reviewing all these teams that they are all winners, as they bring to the table the future of robotics a frontier, which will be conquered indeed. This team told me that since they were using Off-The-Shelf Technology for their platform vehicle, meaning it was your basic SUV, that they were not sure if it had enough of a gas tank to make the whole trip. In fact since the speeds would be around 20-25 miles per hour over rugged terrain and since the vehicle would be running the modified electrical system full blast, with two alternators, RV style air-conditioning system and computer processors that it would be a gas hog? And you thought you paid a lot for gasoline? In any case this unmanned ground vehicles or UGV would be very inefficient indeed.
The LED or Light Emitting Diode came up after a series of inventions, by redefining how light should be emitted. From the age of candle light to the realities of Edison’s light bulb, the tungsten coiled filament has been ruling for decades.
LED bulbs are made from semi semiconductors and it gains more popularity because of its major advantages over a typical tungsten light filament lights. Inventors were able to design a model that could work with car headlamp and it is called Car Led light bulbs.
36 diodowa energooszczędna lampa zewnętrzna LED o mocy 2.9W. Barwa biała ciepła
36 ledowa lampa zewnętrzna ECO-LED jest nowoczesną lampą wykorzystującą jako źródło światła półprzewodnikowe diody LED. Dzięki temu osiąga dużo większą sprawność w bezpośredniej zamianie energii elektrycznej na światło. Jej główną zaletą jest małe zużycie prądu oraz to, że w czasie świecenia jest zawsze chłodna.
Diody elektroluminescencyjne (LED), półprzewodniki, które emitują światło po podłączeniu ich z biegunem dodatnim energii elektrycznej znalazły się w przededniu przejęcia komercyjnych i konsumenckich sektorów przemysłu oświetleniowego. Wszystko to dzięki większej wydajności, dłuższemu okresowi użytkowania, w połączeniu z przyjazną ekologicznie obsługą. Diody LED są przyszłością światła, sprowadzając tradycyjne żarówki żarowe i fluorescencyjne ku ich nieuchronnemu wyginięciu. Właściwie to tylko wyższe koszty produkcji diod utrzymują przy życiu tradycyjną żarówkę.
