In another project directed by Carmanah, the engineering intern devised a strategy that would maximize the operating efficiency of the LEDs over the life of the product they were integrated into. The net effect would be to maintain a brightness that complies to the end user's expectations while broadening the number of sites the product can be deployed into. With better operating efficiencies, it would be possible to install solar powered marine lanterns at higher and lower latitudes than was previously possible.
Carmanah Technologies Corporation (CTC) manufactures and sells advertising and roadway sign products to various industries throughout North America. These products are fluorescence-based and light emitting diode-based devices. CTC wishes to further improve its current product offering by using optimization techniques and numerical simulations of the lighting systems. The optimization is to be done within industrial constraints to improve overall beam-steering and uniformity of back-lit sign illumination
