The VISION Steering Committee have finalised the date: the first-ever online VISION Congress will take place on 17-18 March, a little more than one month from now. There’ll be a first keynote and Headlamp Technologies session on the first day, and a second keynote and Lighting Communication session on the second day. Other sessions on lighting and ADAS will be separated in two parts as well. The timing has been adjusted to offer a compromise between Asian and North American time zones.
The congress will start off with the usual welcome and presentation of the congress, then Valeo’s COO and future CEO Christophe Perillat will make the first keynote, presenting his vision on lighting and ADAS. The second keynote will be made by Stephane Buffat, Director of PSA-Renault’s Laboratory of Accidentology, Biomechanics and Human Behaviour.
The online setting has allowed for an increase in the Q&A sessions to half an hour and optimal discussion panel balance among automakers and suppliers as they kick around ideas about challenges, benefits, and drawbacks of in-lamp sensor integration.
Of course the online venue means no ride-and-drive demonstrations, up to now the unique centrepiece of VISION. Still, we’re excited to try out the advantages and opportunities of a fully-online congress!
