The 1st DVN Interior workshop will take place in Darmstadt, Germany on September 23-24, 2020 at the Maritim Hotel.
For this special opening event of DVN-Interior , we’re planning an exceptional Workshop with the Theme:
Car Interior: New Technologies for New Usages
Within today’s revolution of ACES (autonomous, connected, electric, and shared) vehicles, mobility use cases are changing drastically. Car interiors are becoming a new 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.
These new usages are pulling new technology to make this new reality true! Cars have been designed to have driver and occupants seat in very defined positions and either just driving, or just doing nothing!
Workshop will be structured around 4 sessions in sequence:
Interior lighting: a new level of driver and passengers experience opens with ambient lighting, light as an interior design tool, and the combination of new light sources associated with new materials
Interior surface material trends: New generation of leather & textiles for shared vehicles –
Acoustic insulation surfaces – Interior functionnal integration – NBHX (tbc)
Technology: what are the key technology enablers which will make it possible, either in how occupants interact with the machine (Screen, Voice/Audio, Light,.), how to create the flexibility to allow new positions, which safety systems would be necessary to keep the safest level of protection, …
Material: Combination of new usage and new technology will be not possible without a set of new materials which will allow parts to be lighter, surfaces to be easier to clean, air cabin to be purer, system to be more energy efficient, which materials to substitute scared supplies, …We will talk about lightweight, leather alternatives, composites, MEMS, ..
A selection of exhibitors will present their products/Services on their booth
Lectures are expected from Faurecia, Valeo, DS, NBHX, Coindu, Recticel, Preh, Novem, Osram, ZKW, and others (to be confirmed)
