The DVN Lidar
Conference is now finishing up.
Close on its heels is the DVN Lidar Study that’s gone live just now, looking at whether automotive lidar is hype or a must-have. The answer isn’t obvious or simple; a great deal of uncertainty exists around lidar technology.
For just a few examples of the questions at hand, addressed in the DVN Report: What will be the winning technologies? How will the lidar market and adoption rate develop? What demands are coming from customers and automakers? What are the new business opportunities for the lighting industry?
Whether you are a car maker, a tier-1
or -2 lighting or lidar component or system supplier, this extensively-researched
study will help you identify new business opportunities and make well-informed
strategic decisions in the evolving automotive lidar market.
We assembled a team of five experienced automotive ADAS and lighting experts to build the study; their work included 27 interviews with experts and industry leaders at lidar and lighting companies, additional interviews with four leading research institutes, and extensive literature research and review.
The DVN Lidar Study includes expert advice in seven chapters:
• Why automotive lidar?
• Lidar system and component technology
• Automotive lidar applications
• Integration of automotive lidar and lighting
• Standardisation, Regulations, Testing, and Release
• Automotive lidar market development and new business opportunities
• Scientific contributions
• DVN Best Bets
You’ll find ordering information on the DVN Website.
Meanwhile, in this issue of Driving Vision News we bring you an in-depth article about our night drives in the Mini and the BMW 5 Series, with an interview of BMW’s exterior lighting development chief Jörg Kälble.
