The hybrid live and online DVN US Workshop will happen in Novi, near Detroit, on 21-22 September. The rubric is How to Save Lives in Nighttime Driving.DVN-Interior is integral to this Workshop, particularly with relevant lectures and discussions about driver monitoring systems. They’re expected to become mandatory in the world’s major markets by 2024, which means now is the time to get up to speed on DMS technologies and innovations—along with the related ones in ADB, LED, microLED, lighting performance, simulation, testing, measurements, and regulations. These DVN Workshops are renowned for their uniquely excellent networking opportunities and as a prime venue for presenting your company’s products and services in an expo booth, so if you haven’t yet done so, hurry and register while there’s still space available!
The complexity of the automotive system will increase. Professor Burkhard Göschel, BMW board ex-member for development, is convinced that we need a complete rethink of development and new tools to master these future challenges; read about it in this week’s In-Depth piece.
In our Interior News you will find a comparison of the HMI operating systems of 20 car models, discussion of reinforced data security and cybersecurity of intelligent connected vehicles (ICVs), the importance of HUDs for windshields as functional surfaces, and a technology to efficiently capture VOCs from PVC and PU materials inside the car.
Today’s Mobility News deals with Tesla’s so-called “Autopilot” system—under heightened regulatory scrutiny in America as a disturbing pattern of crashes emerges—and a new test field for automated driving in Aachen, Germany. In the Design Lounge we present impressions from Monterey Car Week in California, and the General News section gives an overview of that event as a refreshing alternative to traditional motor shows. Additionally you can find out more about Faurecia’s Hella acquisition, interesting joint projects of Webasto with DesignLED and a variety of startups, and Dräxlmeier’s new CEO.
