Autumn is a busy time of year in our world, and it's coming up soon. Be sure and block your time and make your plans for four important events coming over the next four months:

IAA Frankfurt Motor Show, 10–21 September
More than 800,000 attendees and around a thousand exhibitors are expected this year. We'll publish a lighting-centred DVN Report promptly—before the end of the show, even—to serve as a guide for attendees and to bring it home for people not able to attend. That means the report will be also be available for ISAL a few days later, to spark discussion.

ISAL, 24–25 September
The last International Symposium on Automotive Lighting drew about 1,000 people in 2017, and this year's event stands to be at least that big—probably bigger. There'll be international engineers, designers, scientists, researchers, academics, practitioners, and decision makers all gathering to discuss the latest innovations and challenges in vehicle lighting. The symposium will start on Tuesday with a keynote from TU Darmstadt's Professor Dr. Hermann Winner, who will talk about safety issues with automated vehicles. On the Wednesday, GTB President Geoff Draper will present the second keynote on regulation, innovation, and GTB.

Tokyo Motor Show, 24 October–4 November
The 46th Tokyo Motor Show will be held at the Tokyo Big Sight venue in the Ariake district of Tokyo's Koto-ku. The show will be open to the general public for a longer period than in past years, to widen opportunities for people to visit in a leisurely manner.

DVN Lidar Conference, 2–3 December
Last year's Lidar Conference was a great success. This year, we're once again bringing together the world's top experts in lidar and vehicle lighting. Lecture sessions will include lidar technology, lidar integration in front and rear lamps, simulation and testing, and market challenges and opportunities. Given the number of scheduled presentations, there will be three half-day sessions.

All these events stand to increase knowledge and understanding and promote innovation—each in its own way. Of course it would be lovely to attend all of them, but for many that's an unrealistic lot of travel, so we're working hard to bring you top-class coverage of all four events. Watch for it in your Driving Vision News!

Sincerely yours

DVN President
