Today we’ve published our DVN Report on the VISION Congress 2018. It’s well worth your perusal, especially if you couldn’t make it to the event itself (or would like to augment the notes you took while there); its detailed coverage includes summaries and commentary on the lectures and presentations—including the top five talks as chosen by attendee vote:
- An OLED Taillight Revolution by Audi’s chief tail light developer Michael Kruppa
- Full LED Headlamp Gen 3 by Paul-Henri Matha, who is now at Volvo Cars
- Active Moisture Removal by Hassan Koulouh and Ulrike Geissler
- New Systems Improvement with High Resolution by AL’s Ernst-Olaf Rosenhahn
- Automated Vehicle Lighting from Lumileds’ Helmut Tiesler-Wittig
There’s also a full list of the 31 demonstrator cars used in the nighttime ride-and-drive sessions at Mortefontaine, showing the latest technologies in lighting, ADAS, and automation.The VISION Congress emphasised the great future of automotive lighting, then the DVN Lidar Conference showed how a new lever exists to increase the lighting business. We’re busily working to bring you the next reports—watch for forthcoming DVN coverage of the Los Angeles Auto Show, the DVN US Workshop, and the Consumer Electronics Show. We’re constantly working to improve the content of our Reports, and to bring them to you as soon as practicable after the events they illustrate.
See, next, an important information from GTB President Geoff Draper, on the GTB Lisbon Accord, and on the minutes of the meeting of the Technical Steering Committee (Chairs and Secretaries of the GTB Working Groups).
Speaking of the DVN US Workshop in Rochester, Michigan: it’ll be here before you know it. Last week we published the agenda. DVN Workshop seats always fill up fast, and that’s happening again, so you’ll want to register if you haven’t already done so.
See you there!
