As we start the new year, it’s a fine time to analyse the achievements of DVN under the stress and strain of a fraught and difficult 2021. We facilitated the flow and exchange of information by publishing 52 DVNewsletters,10 DVN Reports, and a high-value DVN Study. We held two live-and-online DVN Workshops in China and the USA, as well as a Lidar Conference in Frankfurt. Let’s look a little closer:
52 DVNewsletters were sent to the lighting community, week after week without interruption. That’s 52 editorials, 52 in-depth pieces, and around 750 news articles and analyses on lighting, ADAS, sensors, and relevant industry news. The weekly DVNewsletter’s purpose is to cover all important facts and events happening in the realm of lighting and ADAS; we work dilligently to make it the one-stop independent source for relevant news and views for our industry.
10 DVN Reports were released:
• Interior-New Mobility
• Lighting in development countries
• New models November ’20 to February ’21
• Adaptive Driving Beam
• DVN Shanghai Workshop and VISION Congress Q&A
• Rear Lighting
• IAA + New Models April to September ’21
• DVN US Workshop
• Global Landscape of Automotive LED Suppliers
• Cars and concepts presented September to December ’21

And we’re soon to start work on our next DVN Study, based on feedback from the lighting community. Working title: DVN’s Predictions for New Vehicle Lighting Functions.
We’re also working to bolster the DVN team with senior lighting experts all over the world—watch for more information soon.
