70 ADAS-AV Startups at EcoMotion PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 17 June 2019

Last week I was in Israel to attend an interesting multi-day event dedicated to innovation in smart mobility, to talk about the three revolutions in mobility (electrification, autonomous driving, and digital mobility services). The EcoMotion event, brings together 4,000 participants, young and experienced entrepreneurs, market leaders, international and local industry companies, technology-orientated people, policymakers, academic researchers, and investors. 
The four takeaways of the event for the ADAS and lighting community:

  • Many high-level startups are innovating in our fields
  • Many worldwide automakers are involved, including GM, Ford, VW, Renault-Nissan, Honda, and more—plus their suppliers.
  • There was an interesting talk on deepening multinational startup relations with VW, Daimler, Lear, and Valeo participation.
  • VIP speakers like William Ford (Executive Chairman of Ford Motor) and Takao Asami (R&D VP of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance) made highly fascinating lectures.

In the next newsletter you'll find much more information on Ecomotion event, including more about these four takeaways, a presentation of especially notable startup exhibits, and a DVN exclusive interview with EcoMotion Executive Director Orlie Dahan.

Last week, at the 127th session of the GTB General Assembly agreed on the revision of the GTB Statute, changing the role of the President and establishing the new permanent career role of Secretary General with an enlarged secretariat. Keep reading to get the details of these very important decisions.

Sincerely yours

Crucial Developments at GTB 127th Session PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 17 June 2019

Special to DVN by Geoff Draper, GTB President

At the invitation of their Dutch member, GTB gathered for their 127th plenary session in Scheveningen, Netherlands with an impressive participation of 70 experts from 18 of the 19 GTB member associations from Europe, Asia, and America. New delegates joined the session, as interest in new subjects and new technologies continues to attract newcomers to the global GTB family of experts.

The session started with the General Assembly where the main topic was to agree on the revision of the GTB Statute. This was necessary following the decision at the 126th session at Lisbon last November, to change the role of the President and establish the new permanent career role of Secretary General with an enlarged secretariat. Davide Puglisi took his new position as GTB Secretary General on 1 January 2019, based in new headquarters at Torino, Italy. This was the first step in the transition to the new permanent structure with a secretariat strengthened by an additional technical secretary.
