This year’s IAA (Frankfurt Motor Show) is now under way, with the very apt theme “Future Now”. This year there’s a never-before-seen prevalence of advanced technology, all the way from high-tech lighting through ADAS to EVs and AVs. We’ve walked the entirety of the enormous show, and we’re now busily sorting through over 2,000 photographs to assemble our thorough lighting- and ADAS-centred report to go live next month. This week’s in-depth report gives an overview of five salient points we retain from our visit; in other articles this week you’ll find more glimpses and industry views on the technology shown at IAA. It’s now clearer than ever that the vast, fast changes we’re seeing in driver and machine vision are a microcosm of what’s happening in the automotive world at large.
And we’re soon to have an update on what’s doing in our microcosm; ISAL is almost upon us—just six days until the opening dinner. Many DVN readers will be there, and we look forward to seeing you. For those who cannot attend, have no fear; we’ll be carefully taking notes to bring you a comprehensive DVN Report with full coverage and analysis of the lectures, posters, discussions, and expo-booths.
Mark also the dates of our 2018 DVN workshops : January 30-31 in Munich and June 5-6 in Tokyo.
So we’re on duty, as always, to bring you the latest news and views that let you efficiently keep up with what’s happening in our dynamic field.
