The 22nd DVN Workshop will take place on 19-20 April as a specially-organized hybrid event: those near Shanghai can attend in person; while registered attendees around the world can have access anytime via video on demand. There will be two sessions focused on auto interiors with special emphasis on the future of HMI/in-cockpit displays, and interior lighting. Eight interior-focused lectures will be presented by speakers from Antolin, Ansys, Inova, Pforzheim University, Osram-Melexis, DesignLED, Novem and PolyIC. Find more information in this week’s In-Depth, including the link to register.
Really, displays and—more broadly—HMI are the centerpiece of any car interior today, and this week’s news confirms it: from the Mercedes EQS Hyperscreen to the Lada multimedia sound enhanced system, for every brand in every segment there are products ripe for leverage as unique selling propositions; just look at the example of VW’s Nivus in Brazil.
Display technology is increasingly augmented, too, with the HUD to summarize driving information in direct view sight, and with augmented reality display technology for both the HUD and cluster displays—take a look at this week’s Design Lounge for the latest chapter of our detailed DS 4 versus EV6 comparison.
Enjoy this week’s news. I’m ever so glad you’re with us!
