Why So Much Car Light Innovation Lately…?

Why So Much Car Light Innovation Lately…?
The automotive lighting community—from our researchers to our manufacturers, from our regulators to our practitioners—is aggressively creative. This, in two words, explains the enormous amount and rapid pace of vehicular lighting innovations arriving in the market recently. And it's a positive feedback loop, too; take a look at the Embedded Lighting Systems year-long vehicle lighting course of study, seminars at the LRC (see this week's news), DVN Workshops all over the world with around 250 attendees twice a year, VISION congress with 400 attendees and ISAL symposium with more than 700 attendees.

The ISAL steering board committee last week in Darmstadt is another example-about 15 experts in lighting around a table talking with passion and love on the different abstracts to select the 60 best lectures. What a pleasure to see all the team in the same picture.

Some may think we have too many congresses, too many studies, too many regulation meetings. I don't agree; I'm convinced that our great achievements are made possible by the networking we do at our meetings and workshops, introducing and strengthening great relations within and across our field, defining and cataloguing the challenges that spur healthy and vigourous competition. This, in turn, drives innovation. A lecture is educational for the attendees, of course, but maybe even more fruitful for the speaker in preparing the speech and presenting it with passion.

It has been a great pleasure, building the forthcoming DVN deluxe book about vehicle lighting, with the cooperation and contribution of so many who pitched in. Practically every day, at least one colleague gives me an idea or another bit of information to add. I can't wait to present it to you when it's finished soon.

All in all, we are in a good way and I hope that all you all are convinced it is the right way.

Sincerely yours

DVN Editor in Chief
