I will be attending SAE 2010 World Congress at Cobo, Detroit, starting today on April 13th and even if there are fewer exhibitors and lectures than last year, the SAE organisers predict a stronger focus on innovation.
Lighting lectures will be focused in 2 sessions on Tuesday April 13.
I’m expecting nice papers.
I have selected five very interesting lectures, based on the subject and the speaker:
• Photometric Measurements of Headlamps Exposed to Dirt from TUD Darmstadt
I personally followed this study and was deeply impressed by the job done in the field and its high level of accuracy.
• Xenon 25W from Philips
Xenon 25 W is one of the most important current innovations and we are all excited to hear the news from Philips.
• Real-World Measurement of Headlamp illumination from LRC, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
I have heard many lectures of John Bullough, every time with a great interest.
• Headlight with Single LED Module from Osram Sylvania:
LED is the innovation of these last 5 years and we expect interesting information on it
• Tri-Functional Headlamp System with Low Power Consumption from Visteon:
Rainer Neumann is one among the few experts I know whose lectures always deliver a pleasant technical surprise with a lot of charisma.
DVN will publish a detailed report of this SAE 2010 World Congress on Tuesday, April 27. It will not only comment the most interesting lectures but also highlight the outstanding features exhibited in the booth area by Tier 1 and Tier 2 lighting suppliers.
