Building on the four successful VISION Congresses held since 2002, SIA—the French Society of Automotive Engineers—will host the 5th iteration of this automotive lighting and driver assistance symposium and expo at Versailles on 6 and 7 October 2010, during the Paris Mondial Auto Show. A large area is reserved to welcome the exhibition emphasising recent innovations. The night drive tests for which VISION is known will be held at Satory close to the congress. 250 attendees are expected.
The first meeting of the Scientific Committee was held at Renault Technocentre at the end of November to validate the list of participants, finalise the topics of the congress, define the messages, and build the call for papers.
List of Scientific Committee members: 27 experts are confirmed. They are from Germany, France, Italy, Nederlands, Finland, Sweden, Israel, USA and Japan from 6 car makers, 10 Tier 1 suppliers, and 7 universities and Institutes.
Topics in lighting: New light sources, new lighting and signalling systems, simulations
Topics in driver assistance: Visualisation of infrastructure, E-Copilot (On board and cooperative systems), HMI and technology.
