Last week, fully 102 companies were present
at the 2nd DVN Lidar Conference. That’s a new record; never before
at a DVN Conference or Workshop have we had so many companies in attendence.
Why such strong interest? Judging by the feedback we got at and after the Conference, it’s mainly for two reasons:
• The exceptional docket of lectures by an exceptional roster of skilled, talented, informed VIPs from lidar developers and manufacturers, research outfits, automakers and suppliers
• Keen interest in lidar technologies. There is enormous investment in that sector right now, and it is crucial to understand the who-what-when-where-why of automotive lidar—the technologies and the applications, the prospects for integrating lidar in the car and for new business opportunities, the status of regulations and market development.
That’s why, since the beginning of this year, we’ve been working with lidar and lighting experts on a study called Automotive Lidar: Hype or Must-Have?
And now it’s available for purchase.
Many uncertainties exist around lidar technology, primarily concerning what will be the winning technologies and who from among the dozens of lidar makers will make them. Whether you are a car maker, a Tier-1 or -2 lighting supplier, a lidar system or component provider, a practitioner, or a researcher, this study will help you to identify new business opportunities in the nascent automotive lidar market and to make make smart, informed strategic decisions.

I also direct your attention to the DVN website, where you can see slides from the lectures presented at the lidar conference (as released by speakers and their companies) and pictures taken during the two-day event. We’ll soon be setting our sights on Conference № 3!
