Mid-autumn vacation time is coming (at least in Europe) and our team is preparing November and December events.
We’re finalizing our event in Shanghai with the organization of our three panel discussions on regulation, rating, and design. Each panel promises to be intriguing, with a lot of new updates for 2024.
We’re also putting the finishing touches on our 2023 DVN Study we will publish on 1 November, about ADB. Many apposite things have happened over the last 18months—the FMVSS 108 release in Q1 2022, the first microLED headlamp on the market this year, the introduction of road projections as part of the ADB function in ECE Regulations from January 2023, and a new proposal to include ADB in the China NCAP rating in 2024 are among the topics that the Study will detail.
In the last four weeks we’ve had a great deal of feedback across multiple channels, about interviews we’ve run in the DVNewsletter—Renault, Osram, Lumileds, Luxit, and more—and we are pleased this week to bring you this week’s in-depth report about the Magna R&D team, with an interview, after my visit in Torino. I surely hope you will like it. We will continue these interviews and visits in the coming weeks as we have done for so many years. We always appreciate your input and feedback to improve our (your!) Newsletter and keep you engaged and interested in it.
Don’t miss the information in this Newsletter about the Car Design News awards in London in December for the design best Lighting team. It’s a great initiative, and DVN will be there to inform the community about the result. We really like the idea to have lighting as part of a design event!
