This week, we release our newest DVN Report on the state of evolution in vehicle lighting regulations around the world. This new report looks at actual, ongoing, and forecast changes in regulatory attitude and practice, what differentiates harmonisation from standardisation and synchronisation. We focus on the main issues facing global harmonisation and synchronisation of the technical requirements, and detail changes underway in UNECE, EU, Chinese, Korean, and American contexts and introduces new topics such as the lighting requirements for AVs.
Regulation used to be something of a bland background topic to check off the list, but now it is a much higher priority for development engineers who understand the importance of removing barriers to innovation.
Around the world, attitudes are changing toward regulation and standardisation, but the path between better regulatory ideas and better regulations in force is an uphill climb; there is a clear distinction between the development of global technical requirements and the politics of how they can be implemented into national regulation. It is important to understand the implications and the actions that industry needs to implement if we are to avoid barriers to beneficial innovation. Download your copy of the report today.
In this week’s news, we bring an in-depth look at EcoMotion, Israeli event which brings together young and experienced entrepreneurs, technology-orientated people, academic researchers, and practitioners. We’ve got an interview with the executive director of the event, and a list of interesting startups I met during this event.
