2019 was a terrific year as far as we’re concerned; that’s when DVN-I came to be! Launched via the sturdy platform of its parent company DrivingVisionNews, DVN Interior started publishing early this past May with this rubric:
within the ongoing automotive transport revolution bringing connected, autonomous, shared, and electric vehicle, mobility use cases are changing drastically—and car interiors are becoming a stronger-than-ever product differentiator, facilitating new activities for vehicle occupants: relaxing, working, phoning, watching movies, and other suchlike.
Since that opening pitch, DVN Interior has developed a strong and growing network of subscribers. The bimonthly DVN-I Newsletter is gaining readers and generating positive reactions. The first DVN-I Report was published on auto shows and interior lighting. We think that’s a good, solid first year’s work, judging by the feedback you’re sending us. Building on that foundation, we’re busily working to organize the first DVN-I Workshop for next Spring.
That’s the scope of DVN Interior. That’s why we’re here: to actively develop and grow the community of car interior experts and facilitate communication, information exchange, and the realization of innovations. The DVN-I Newsletter, Reports, and Workshops are all aimed at consolidating and presenting pertinent news, to help DVN-I members stay efficiently and easily informed and up to date without having to chase widely-scattered, difficult-to-find articles in dozens of sources. We do it by identifying and describing the links among the automotive market, design trends, 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’s and tomorrow’s vehicle user experience, and we cast our gaze both wide and long to keep track of emerging innovation and ideas. We also keep tabs on new mobility models, as mobility service providers will brand their services through a unique travel experience, with the interior as a major pillar. New mobility will drive new interiors, and vice versa.
We take the opportunity with this newsletter to summarize the highlights and the main learning points of the year for automotive interiors features, technologies, and design.
May your 2020 be
full of joy, peace, happy surprises, and success. We’re hard at work to ensure a
steady supply of enjoyable, informative
reading in the DVN Interior Newsletter!
We’re glad you’re here, and we thank you for your support.
