Project Description

Overview

A ride share company worked with Aces to help create an LED lightbar for their drivers. The user’s phone will light up with the color they select and the LED lightbar located on the car will light up to match the color chosen. This product makes it much easier for the passenger to identify their driver during crowded events.

Challenges

  • High current (6A peak, 5A constant) for small size cigarette lighter plug.
  • Shock/vibration proof and user friendly (easy plug/unplug) connection at all times.

Services Performed

  • Aces modified Mag-Fit’s sprint contact for high current requirement.
  • Deployed mechanical & electrical solutions to achieve minimum sized cigarette lighter plug.

Results

  • Successfully resolved major heat dissipating concerns for the USB charger to maintain safe operation.
  • Ride share company is currently field testing 700 units in Pacific Northwest region.
