The DVN Workshop was a great success last week in Novi, Michigan. With 300 attendees of whom 210 were live and in person, it was a festival of innovation and technology with 30 lectures as well as Q&A sessions, panel discussions, and expo booths. An entire lecture and discussion session was dedicated to interior and driver monitoring systems. A variety of suppliers described their innovations and R&D work and showed off a wide array of technologies and techniques for the systems and components themselves, and the validation tools for DMS. Pulled by forthcoming regulations, automakers and tier-1s are all putting serious work into DMS, supported by technology providers. This week’s in-depth article gives you an extended review of all presented lectures.
Multiple technologies are under development, even if right now it looks like IR light is the preferred one. That tech choice is only one element of the system, even it is the centerpiece. Like any system in an automobile, the challenge is now to integrate it in the vehicle so it works dependably in every relevant use case, it is seamlessly designed into the interior, it fits with the cost equation of the vehicle, and so on.
We’re very thankful to all who attended, presented, and exhibited at the DVN Workshop. If you want to make sure you’ll attend the next ones (including DVN Interior Workshop on 26-27 April 2022 – more information to come), make sure you’re a member of the DVN community. Subscribe here.
