Over 230 people attended and participated in last week's DVN Workshop symposium and expo, emphasising the great hunger in the worldwide lighting community for more information exchange about the rapidly advancing cutting edge of technology in our arena. In America, traditionally a region with relatively slack interest in car lights, now lighting has become a strong lever not only for styling differentiation but also for safety performance better than the basic legal requirements, and for energy efficiency.
230 attendees—shown at the welcome dinner—followed lectures and panel discussions
The prospects for laser and OLED technologies, improved lighting and safety performance, and the intelligent lighting achieved by camera-integral systems were amongst the diverse topics discussed. All of these technologies have to be integrated in the regulations, which of course are different in the US than in most of the world.
All these points have been presented at the DVN US workshop under the rubric " Future Lighting Technologies, Techniques, and Regulatory Affairs".
