“New Technologies for Car Interior and Mobility” will be the theme of the Car Smart Interior Workshop, the first DVN-Interior event. New use cases within more automated and connected vehicles, flexible interior and system perspectives, seating, interior lighting, traditionally passive surfaces becoming functional, HMI, design, and decoration are included in the topics to be discussed.
24 lectures are expected from Audi, BMW, Honda, PSA, Renault, DS, Faurecia, Valeo, Hella, Adient, Yanfeng, ZF, Brose, Recticel, Preh, NBHX, Sensata, Texas Instruments, Ansys, FLT, the ISELED Alliance, Inova, Osram, and EPIC (the European Photonics Industry Consorsium).
For this online event, we’re planning an exceptional conference and expo. Within today’s revolution of CASE (connected, autonomous, shared, and electric) vehicles, mobility use cases are changing drastically. Car interiors are becoming a new product differentiator, allowing drivers and occupants to pivot from actively driving or passively watching scenery to a diverse new range of timespending in a car: relaxing, working, phoning, reading, watching movies…the car becomes a mobile lounge, and these new usages are pulling new technology to realise this new reality.
The Workshop will be structured around five sessions in sequence with a keynote for each:
Session 1: Interior as a system
Car interiors will look like cockpits of the future meant to cocoon driver and passengers, create flexibility and allow all positions, purify cabin air, and become energy efficient, with the systems necessary to keep the safest level of protection. There’ll be three lectures on interior architecture, the cockpit of the future, and the smart cocoon.
Session 2: Any surface becomes functional
This session will include presentations on the functionalisation of traditionally passive surfaces, intelligent multifunctional intuitive controls, sensor integration on IP skins, new functional plastic technology, and functional leather surfaces.
Session 3: Interior lighting
Here’s where there’ll be lectures on new interior lighting technologies, dynamic lighting enabling new functionalities, functional integration, and light and electronic control elements.
Session 4: Seating
Topics will include configurable seating for L2+ autonomy, intuitive seat comfort adjustment, lightweight adjustable seat structures, in-seat driver monitoring systems, and new roles for in-seat sensors.
Session 5: Interior design & simulation software & hardware
Presentations on configurable digital cockpits, HMI and 3D display, infotainment, cluster monitoring, and functional decoration
Powered by ExpoWizard, the event will include B2B face-to-face meetings and a virtual expo that will remain open seven days on from the event, as well as the video recordings of all lectures. Exhibitors will be able to enhance their exposure with text, photo galleries, company contact information, and presentation videos.
A special exhibition corner will gather all startup companies involved in driver and passenger safety, comfort & wellbeing, and new user experiences.
