26 lectures, two panel discussions, 200 registered attendees…and counting! That’s what the numbers look like for the Second International DVN Lidar Conference to be held on 2–3 December in Frankfurt.
The whole DVN team—myself, Salomon Berner,
Ralf Schäfer, Leo Metzemaekers, Daniel Stern, and the rest of us—are working
very hard to organise a successful event; you’ll receive the agenda as soon as
it’s complete in a few days. We’ve just confirmed the commitment of Dr. Mircea Gradu, as keynote speaker. He’s President
and Chairman of the Board of SAE International as well as Chief Quality Officer
at Velodyne Lidar, and his speech is entitled “An ADAS Feature Rating
System: Proposing a New Industry Standard”.
The docket includes presentations from automakers including Audi and Volvo; from lidar and lighting suppliers like Aeye, AL, Cepton, Continental, Fraunhofer, Ibeo, Jenoptik, Osram, Innoviz, Valeo, Xenomatix, and ZKW; and from a variety of tier-2 suppliers involved in automotive lidar integration like GXC Coatings, Mentor Graphics, Synopsys, and Yole Developpement.
The lecture sessions will be followed by two panel discussions about the speed of adoption of automotive lidar and its impact on the vehicle lighting industry. It’s surely going to be a high-value event; have you registered yet? If not, write in today and reserve your place.
