Taking account of the feedback on the DVN-I online Smart Interior Workshop last month, hard work is under way to make the third DVN Lidar Online Conference a grand success.
Dedicated to lidar applications, components, technology, and markets, this conference will gather lidar experts, suppliers, and applicationists from car makers, integrators, and producers.
Dr. Gunnar Juergens, Lidar VP of Continental Advanced Lidar Solutions US, will deliver a keynote on the entry of lidar technology into the automotive mainstream.
Two sessions will present lidar applications—one from Volvo’s Paul-Henri Matha, PSA’s Matthieu Dabek, Audi’s Berlitz, Great Wall Motors with LiangDao, and the second from Marelli AL’s Thomas Fröhlich, Koito’s Teruaki Torii, and ZKW’s Georg Pitterle.
Two further sessions will focus on lidar sensors components, with lectures by Osram Opto Semiconductors’ Stefan Mergl, Dioptic’s Dr. Niklas Andermahr, OQmented’s Dr. Ulrich Hofmann, Lumentum’s Thomas Sommer, Jenoptik’s Dr. Hagen Schweitzer, and Fraunhofer IMS’ Dr. Jennifer Ruskowski.
The final two sessions will look at lidar technologies with presentations by Ouster’s Raffi Mardirosian, Valeo’s Dr. Hassan Moussa, Ibeo’s Mario Brumm, Xenomatix’s Filip Geuens, and Innoviz’s Anna Michlin, as well as presentations by Leddartech and Cepton (speakers TBC).
Dr. Mircea Gradu (photo), SVP at Velodyne Lidar and SAE International Officer, will give a keynote on lidar market and technology trends for robotic vehicles. And Yole Développement’s Pierrick Boulay will close the Workshop with an update on the automotive lidar market.
The whole event is designed and configured to get attendees optimally and efficiently informed about the state of the art, technology, technique, application, market, and outlook for automotive lidar, with 20 expected exhibitors showcasing their products and services with explanatory text and image galleries and company outreach information.
The virtual expo will be accessible for a full week after the event, as will the conference video recordings. 300 attendees will be present and will have the opportunity to visit each virtual booth. And all of this will be recapped in a DVN Report on the event, sent to the 1,000 DVN members from over 150 Gold member companies.
