HOW WE DO IT

We offer extensive experience seamlessly navigating the design process, so you can introduce stylish innovations approved for the open road that turn heads while turning a profit, too. Unlike a contract manufacturer churning out canned assemblies, we provide expertise and guidance at every stage of the process. Our engineers can create the designs, or team with your designers, and help you avoid expensive pitfalls, rework and delays during the design process.

FEEL THE HEAT

Today’s LED lighting systems are also smarter, which makes them safer and more efficient. SmartHeat® is an intelligent automation technology that de-ices LEDs automatically without driver intervention to improve visibility.

Snow/ice accumulations: Falling snow, sleet and freezing rain becomes a hazard for drivers, at 70 mph or 30 mph, and can accumulate quickly on surfaces, including headlights and taillights, compromising performance significantly.

Condensation: You don’t have to live in the frozen tundra to experience poor visibility from problematic headlights. Condensation inside the headlight assembly can partially mask the high-powered LED beam. In addition, cloudy headlights can be a distracting eyesore that detracts from the beauty of an otherwise stylish vehicle.

SEE SAFELY FURTHER DOWN THE ROAD

Ice, snow and condensation degrade performance, compromise safety — and mask the beauty of LED lights. SmartHeat® LEDs from J.W. Speaker offer more visibility in inclement weather while adding a stylish, signature look for today’s modern vehicles. The future of SmartHeat® is limitless, with extensive opportunities to be incorporated into complex lighting aesthetics and customized applications.

HOW IT WORKS

PATENTED DESIGN

Our patented SmartHeat® thermal conductive grid system stays on to prevent ice, snow and condensation from collecting on the lens — even in the most extreme temperatures and wintry conditions.

TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED

When the ambient temperature has risen above the low temperature threshold, the SmartHeat® grid system turns off automatically

CREATE AN ICONIC, BRANDED STYLE
PUT SAFETY ON DISPLAY

From the backward “C” in the GMC lineup to the angel “eyes” in BMW vehicles to Volvo’s “Thor”-style headlights, today’s vehicles can be identified day or night by compelling, unique headlight designs and beam patterns — making LEDs a critical part of the user experience. But today’s savviest car and truck buyers expect both style and performance. Seat belts and windshield wipers are ubiquitous safety features today, but they were novel enhancements decades ago. Likewise, SmartHeat® technology — which directly improves driver visibility — is likely to become one of the signature standard safety features of vehicles for the foreseeable future. Consumers want it all when they purchase a new vehicle. Isn’t it time to give it to them?

LEVERAGE PROVEN PRACTICES AND INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

Design A Unique LED Headlight

Every new look of tomorrow was created yesterday. Or, more accurately, two-plus years ago. An OEM project is a comprehensive evolution, measured in developmental gains more than breakthrough moments. As more power is designed into smaller spaces, extensive research, transparency and patience become paramount. J.W. Speaker offers a wide range of proven practices, experienced designers and innovative technologies to simplify countless complex stages along the way, including:

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

CONCEPTING

TESTING, VALIDATION AND PRODUCTION

COMPLIANCE

A PROVEN OEM PARTNER

There are millions of reasons why a great concept turns into a failed idea. This is especially true when seeking regulatory approvals. We work tirelessly, as well as sit on the Boards of global regulatory organizations, on behalf of our OEM partners, to bring new technologies to market.


We’ve helped spur regulatory change. We’ve helped change industry standards. And we’ve partnered with OEMs on some of the biggest game changers in LED lighting, including SmartHeat®, Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) and other cutting-edge technologies.
