Jenoptik's Optical Systems division has entered into a framework agreement with Magna Electronics Europe for the supply of optical sensors. The agreement in the low double-digit million euros range starts in mid-April 2011 with the technical systems for the new contract installed at Jenoptik's Triptis, Germany facility. Series production of the sensor will start in the summer of this year.

Over and above the framework agreement, Magna and Jenoptik are working together on preparations for further projects. With the agreement, Jenoptik is enlarging its volume production of systems and modules for sensor technology and imaging applications in the automotive industry. The sensor enables improved protection of pedestrians in the event of frontal collisions. It will be installed on the front end of almost all models of a leading German car maker and is based on the principle of optical information transfer.

In the event of a collision, the light intensity in a polymer band changes, thereby giving off a signal, which causes a lighting-speed action on the vehicle. This helps to prevent or reduce serious injuries to pedestrians in the event of an accident.
