Electroluminescence Expert in Emergency Vehicle Lighting Systems
An electroluminescence expert was needed for a patent infringement case involving solid state or LED emergency vehicle lighting systems. The patents in question related to light emitting diode (LED) warning signal lights used on police, fire and other emergency and utility vehicles. Essentially, all of the parties were manufacturers of emergency signal equipment such as emergency flashers and light bars.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an electroluminescence expert with experience in the design and development of LED lighting products, specifically, emergency light bars and other emergency warning signal lights. LED lighting is a form of electroluminescence (EL) which has become widespread due to its brightness and low power consumption.
