The 2017 DVN US Workshop will be held this coming 10–11 January at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan (about 50 km North of Detroit). During a day and a half’s worth of conference sessions we will have a docket packed with important worldwide lighting managers and experts.
26 lectures will be presented by
– car makers including Audi, BMW, FCA, Ford, GM, and Renault.
– set makers including AL, Hella, JW Speaker, Mobis, SL, Stanley, Valeo, Varroc, and ZKW.
– light source suppliers including Lumileds, Nichia, and Osram.
– tier-2s such as AML Systems, Sea Link, Covestro, IAV, Lear, LMT, and NXP.
Every last one of the 25 expo booth spaces has been claimed, and we’ve got some interesting first-time exhibitors this year.
GTB President Geoff Draper will cover lighting technologies and standardisation, safety & regulatory affairs in a dedicated session. In it, topics will include
– The GRE plan to simplify the lighting and light-signalling regulations in two stages;
– The plan of the Chinese Government to simplify its mandatory GB standards;
– The GTB plan to provide GRE with an initial proposal for Stage 2 simplification, and
– The NHTSA and SAE work toward objective requirements for ADB.
There’ll also be a panel session gathering experts representing regulators, researchers, vehicle and equipment manufacturers, and standardisation groups discussing how best to define and realise concepts like performance-based and technology-neutral technical regulations, and how technical requirements can be developed in the context of self-certification regimes.
See next, a very important paper concerning the GTB meeting last week.
