The first DVN-Interior Think Tank Seminar will be held this Autumn. The idea is to have a small, closely interactive group of experts—not just listening to lectures, as interesting and informative as that is. We’ll get into great discussions on topics of general interest to the whole community. We’ll talk and listen with each other on how to build a more advanced common perspective on hot automotive interior topics.
Last week’s in-depth article on polyurethane confirmed the huge challenges we face with sustainability, especially for the interior community making decisions about the part of the car where the greatest amount of plastic material is used. This week’s in-depth article confirms the growing importance of remote software updates to open new income streams for the industry. They will also influence how occupants interact with their vehicles, and how designers and engineers will define HMI.
That’s why the Think Tank Seminar will focus on these two topics, HMI and sustainability. We are tentatively planning it for 29 November in Köln, Germany. We’ll keep you informed as we develop the event. How does the idea strike you? What would you like to discuss and do at the event? Please send us your thoughts.
