DVN will finish this year with a report on ISAL and another on the North American state of the art in vehicle lighting. As we look down the road to next year, an important task looms before us: it’s time to plan report topics for 2016.
Of course, we will publish reports on the auto shows at Detroit, Geneva, and Paris; the VISION congress and whatever other gatherings (such as the SAE Congress) offer enough interesting material to cover, and we’ll report on the DVN Workshops we will organise in India and Japan. We also expect to make a report on the aftermarket and one on pixel light considering the new technologies and techniques.
That leaves room on the docket for a couple more reports, and that’s where you come in. Please help us choose what to report on! Maybe you have some ideas of your own; please share them. Possibilities that occur to me are:
• A company profile—Renault, VW, Varroc Lighting, Stanley, for example;
• A predictive report on the vision of car lighting in 2025-2030;
• A look at the evolution of regulations worldwide;
• A report on simulation tools in automotive lighting (last covered 4 years ago);
• A report on interior lighting (last covered 3 years ago)
Writing and assembling a DVN report is a long and difficult process which involves multiple experts. We don’t want to publish a report DVN members aren’t interested to read. The DVN team is always hard at work to help the lighting community. To help us help you, please take a few moments and send in your thoughts on the matter.
