Matrix Beam Report Goes Live

This week we're proud to release DVN Report Nº. 84—and it's one of our most important. It covers ADB (Adaptive Driving Beam) and specifically focuses on matrix beam technology, in which we have a revolutionarily excellent solution to the longrunning conflict between seeing and glare. This report brings up-to-the-minute information on the technology, technique, and regulatory issues, with associated benefits and challenges. The four present ADB implementation solutions' SWOTs are evaluated and compared. There's reportage of DVN night test drives of four production matrix beam systems, and updates on the development status at major setmakers. There are no fewer than nine interviews with top experts and managers sharing their vision and views about the future of ADB.

We're very grateful for assistance and support in crafting this report from a large group of experts whom I want to personally thank for their contributions—
Automaker heads of lighting divisions: Wolfgang Huhn, Uwe Kostanzer, and Gunnar Koether, Audi's Michael Hamm, Daimler's Jörg Moisel; setmaker R&D managers: AL's Kamislav Fadel, Hella's Hans-Theo Dorissen, Koito's Yuji Yokoya, Valeo's Laurent Evrard, Varroc's Rainer Neumann, ZKW's Jürgen Antonitsch;
Researchers: TUD's Prof. Khanh and RPI-LRC's John Bullough who shared their works on ADB;
And of course DVN wouldn't happen without the constant support of Ralf Schäfer, Daniel Stern, Salomon Berner, and Jean-Paul Charret.

I'm convinced this report will give all automotive lighting players, experts, and managers, an accurate and well-rounded picture of the state of the art in ADB and help them to form their opinion on the impact of this technology on their future business decisions. It will also be useful for all newcomers wishing to learn about the latest lighting technologies.

Sincerely yours

DVN Editor in Chief
