With a persistent focus on innovation and new technology, DVN has been the driver and vehicle lighting and vision world’s journal of reference for around 16 years now, over which time we’ve expanded its reach and scope to encompass car interiors and lidar. Before DVN was founded, nobody was conducting a systematic watch on vehicle lighting innovations, emerging technologies, market and regulatory trends, or any suchlike. A man who’d spent decades devising successful innovations in vehicle lighting—Hector Fratty—saw that need and created Driving Vision News to meet it. Over the years we’ve grown the DVN community by providing consistently high value. Our subscribers tend to be loyal, and they tend to bring their colleagues and associates along—that’s one of the main ways the community grows.
Lighting, driver assistance systems, car interiors and Lidar are among the strongest growing technologies for active and passive safety in car design. DVN is your one-stop source of the information you need to keep up with all the important events and innovations happening in these industries. DVN Newsletters, Reports, and Workshops provide behind-the-scenes information—hard and soft facts from the industry, performance data, news and analysis, interviews, and commentary from the world’s subject matter experts.
But DVN is more than just a news and information pipeline. It’s a global community of networked experts sharing information about lighting, car interior innovations and Lidar. And one of the biggest strengths of this community is the strength-in-numbers it takes to optimize regulations and standards to move innovations out of the labs and onto the road to maximize vehicle occupants’ safety, comfort, and convenience.
DVN Lighting is a community of experts, communicating through weekly newsletters, monthly reports and bi-annual workshops, aiming at compiling and analyzing information that would otherwise be scattered and difficult to access, to help DVN Lighting members access, absorb, and leverage it quickly and efficiently. DrivingVisionNews is the technical and market journal and community nexus of the vehicle lighting, vision, and driver assistance world.
Today’s buyers and drivers are newly interested and selective in the capabilities, configuration, equipment, style, materials, and interfaces in their cars’ lighting, and driver assistance features. Industry must respond to these demands quickly and adeptly, but the information is both abundant and scattered. Without DVN, it takes an impractical amount of effort, time, and money to maintain a commanding, leading-edge view of developments.
DVN is your single source for the information you need to excel. DVN Newsletters, Reports, and Workshops provide behind-the-scenes information—hard and soft facts from the industry, performance data, news and analysis, interviews, and commentary from the world’s subject matter experts. With persistent focus on innovation and new technology—what’s happening, who’s making it happen, and how to get it from the R&D lab to the world’s roads quickly and efficiently. Beyond the news and information pipeline, DVN is a dynamic global community of networked experts sharing ideas and forming new alliances. A notable strength of the DVN community is the aggregate mindpower and crowdwork it focuses to move regulations and standards in the right directions to maximize traffic safety, comfort, and convenience.
DVN Interior is a community of car interior experts, communicating through a weekly newsletter, reports and workshops, aiming at compiling and analyzing information that would otherwise be scattered and difficult to access, to help DVN Interior members access, absorb, and leverage it quickly and efficiently.
Within today’s revolution of CASE (Connected, Automated, Shared, and Electric) vehicles, mobility use cases are changing drastically. The car as a living space is gaining traction as an idea as vehicle autonomy steadily grows, while aerodynamic and crash-safety priorities have done away with yesterday’s exterior flying buttresses and other suchlike. Therefore, car interiors are becoming the real product differentiator, allowing drivers & occupants to have a complete new set of activities through relaxing, working, phoning, reading, watching movies…the car becomes a mobile lounge. Thanks to all these new usages, car interiors are one of the strongest growing pieces of the vehicle, introducing millions of new technologies, apps, and features.
DVN Interior is also always linking the automotive market, new technology, and new mobility services to present and explain relevance in the car interior realm. Technology and services are the building blocks of today and tomorrow vehicle occupant experience, and that’s where interior and mobility overlap. Mobility service providers will of course brand and promote their services, not least by creating a unique customer experience, from ordering with a smartphone tap to relaxing into a mobility tool. Here again, the interior is a major pillar of the experience, so new mobility will drive new interiors, and vice versa.
DVN Lidar is a community of lidar companies and experts linked to the ADAS/AD industry. A key process of the community is intense communication with each other. As one element to accomplish this aim, a monthly newsletter and regular white papers are published. But an even more important element is personal communication ( in person or online ). Therefore DVN Lidar is facilitating regular Think Tanks, Workshops and last but not least the yearly DVN lidar conference. All these activities cover a global scale.
Members of the community reach out along the whole value chain. Members comprise OEM’s, sensor system integrators, lidar sensor suppliers as well as numerous suppliers of components and software. Another important field covered by the members is testing, standardization and regulation.
With the increasing trend to L3 driving automation and the final goal of reaching L4/L5 autonomous vehicles broad market introduction around 2030, the role of lidar systems in the sensor suite for autonomous driving is ever increasing. Recent regulation changes are propelling this trend.
Through the diversity of its members and an open exchange of information and opinion, the community will be able to strongly support lidar as key tool for autonomous vehicles.
The DVN lidar community is dedicated to create a link between society, market, technology and industrial execution. It is a firm belief by the community ( underpinned by studies ) that lidar sensors can significantly contribute to traffic safety as well as relax the stress on drivers in their vehicle manouvering task.
DVN addresses high-level professionals: engineers, designers, decision makers, executives, practitioners, and researchers working for automakers, suppliers, universities, and laboratories in the fields of lighting, driver assistance, and car interiors. Subscribers receive the weekly electronic Driving Vision Newsletter with up-to-the-minute news and analysis of relevant happenings, all archived and searchable at DrivingVisionNews.com, as well as a wide array of high-level monthly DVN Reports—over 164 of them and counting, including technical and technological deep-dives, expositions, and roadmaps; company profiles, in-depth coverage of motor shows, reportage of vehicle lighting or interior symposium and Lidar conference events, and more, all perpetually available after publication. And speaking of the website, subscribing members get space there to present and link to their company.
