Great Lighting Events in the next months PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 08 April 2019

2019's got a pair of high-content lighting events: coming up soon, on the 24-25 of this month, is the Shanghai DVN Workshop, number 19 in an unbroken string of fruitful, worthwhile DVN Workshops held round the world.
And exactly five months later on 24-25 September is the 13th ISAL (International Symposium on Automotive Lighting), the famous highly scientific technical congress headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tran Quoc Khanh. ISAL was started in 1995 by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans Joachim Schmidt-Clausen as PAL (Progress in Automotive Lighting) and since its 1995 inception has been organised and put on by the Technical University of Darmstadt, 20 minutes' rail ride from Frankfurt.
ISAL's docket will include fully 58 lectures and 20 posters, selected, last month, by the ISAL steering committee members.
This week Professor Khanh shares his views on how ISAL is shaping up this year, and we're inclined to agree with his favourable opinion.

The DVN Shanghai Workshop, our 7th in Asia, will welcome 27 exhibitors—a new record. Likewise, we've been hard at work for months to make DVN Shanghai our best Workshop yet.

And these aren't the only two notable events on this year's calendar. We're just back from a terrific tour of Consumer Reports' headlight testing facility, and this week we're at the SAE World Congress and Expo. Watch for detailed coverage coming soon in the Driving Vision News!

Sincerely yours

13th ISAL: 58 Lectures, 20 Posters, and More! PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 08 April 2019

ISAL's on a steady upward trend. There were over 800 experts in attendance in 2015, and around 1,000 in 2017; the 2019 event is sure to gather even a greater number of engineers, designers, scientists, researchers, academics, technicians, practitioners, and decision makers from all sectors of the world's vehicle lighting industry on 24-25 September in Darmstadt.

A great deal of this year's subject matter focuses on research and development of high-resolution adaptive and laser-based high beams to improve seeing distance and general driving comfort, as well as adaptive rear lights to minimise discomfort and maximise road safety for following cars. There'll be presentations on new challenges arising in form of energy efficient lighting for purely electric vehicles and lighting design and functions for autonomous driving.
ISAL 2019 will surely encourage the exchange between lighting engineers, road safety experts and regulatory bodies. The newest research results will be presented and discussed in the best traditions of ISAL and its predecessor PAL.
Last month, the ISAL steering committee selected 58 scientific papers to be presented as lectures, and 20 to be presented as posters from the 135 abstracts received.
