ABSTRACT
The article looks at the role of light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in the U.S. trailer manufacturing sector. LEDs began their use in 1991 by member companies of the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA), wherein they were applied for discreet devices. LEDs are lighting systems invented by Nick Holonyak of General Electric in 1962, which was 100 years since the invention of the incandescent electric bulb by Thomas Edison.
