Last month’s DVN Workshop near Detroit was our tenth overall, our third in North America, and a smashing success. 230 attendees represented automakers, tier-1 and -2 suppliers, academics, regulators, and renowned designers from all over the world. The expo booths were diverse and fascinating, and the 20 lectures were of a notably high level of excellence and interest, and the round table panel discussions—a unique and much-loved feature of DVN Workshops wherever they’re held—brought formidable levels of expertise to bear on the pressing topical questions which, by their answers, will define and shape what the coming generations of vehicle lights will look like, how they will work, and how they will be regulated. Such was the level of engagement with the lectures that the final panel discussion on regulations was deferred to an intercontinental teleconference with around 100 participants, adeptly directed by GTB President Geoff Draper. Today, DVN Gold members can get our full-coverage report on the 2015 US DVN Workshop.

The entire DVN team are most grateful not only to all the lecturers, displayers, and panelists, but equally to each and every attendee. We have worked hard to imbue this report with as much of the presented information as practicable. It’s not just words on pages, either; the lecture titles in the lecture list and at the top of each summary page are hyperlinks. Just click for instant access to the lecture slides either as a PowerPoint or PDF. We express especial gratitude to the lecturers’ affiliates for broadly granting permission to publish, with only a few exceptions and constraints. Kindly please drop us a line and let us know how this quick-click lecture access strikes you, and we’re always listening to your every suggestion for how we might make the next report—and the next Workshop coming soon in Shanghai—even better.
