Interior lighting enhances the travel experience; facilitates finding and operating vehicle controls; supports infotainment, and visually improves surfaces and materials. With intelligence, it may even adapt to context and mood. DVN and DVN Interior have not stopped shouting about its importance, and have no plans to stop. The recent very successful Shanghai DVN Lighting Workshop confirmed it again, and this week’s in-depth presents the full content of the Smart Interior Lighting session. Interior lighting is very much a part of the increasingly demonstrable quip that in the automotive world, lighting is the new chrome. We all understand that with today’s technology, it is much more than a decorative element; it doesn’t only beautify surface materials—it is a real chain link of the HMI, of the safety concept, and now even the health and wellbeing solution.
Do enjoy this week’s China Workshop report. In the meantime, we proudly present this, the 130th DVN Interior Newsletter! We’re ever so glad you’re with us.
