The DVN Workshop starting today in Munich is all set to be a great success. I am so happy to welcome the participants from 125 companies, to learn of the latest innovations by seeing 30 lectures and the regulation panel session, visiting the exhibitors, and talking and listening together before enjoying a nice dinner. Soon we’ll post on the DVN website pictures and video of this event, and all the information concerning the Workshop.
You’ll remember last week we brought you an interview with Marelli Automotive Lighting’s CEO and R&D Director. This week we follow up with an illustrated report of my visit to that company’s headquarters in Reutlingen. I was impressed by the involvment of the team developing so many technologies all at once. I retain from my visit the challenge of laser technology despite great progress in performance and price; the interesting work on HD pixel beam which will be the greatest lighting ever offered to (and by) car makers; the great achievements in standardised modules, and the interesting strategy of ECU-free system architecture.
After the Munich Workshop wraps up, we will be setting our sights on preparing for the next DVN Workshop in Tokyo on 26–27 May 2020 with the theme Advanced Lighting Technologies and Safety, so save the date! Naturally we’ll provide more information in your weekly Driving Vision News as it becomes available.
