On behalf of everyone at Driving Vision News, we are grateful for your continued support. We remain your trusted source for lighting and ADAS news, especially now in this difficult time, when information is the most valuable resource.
That’s why in this week’s News you will find, as promised, The Wonderful story of Lighting, with over 130 slides. This week, you will only present the introduction of the story, then the different chapters, will come week after week. It’s a production by DVN’s Jean-Paul Ravier, former Valeo Research Director. These slides are presented for you who are stuck at home right now, to offer pleasant and fruitful ways of thinking about your field of speciality.
In it, you will discover the long history of lighting technologies, lighting today focussed on the link between styling and safety, ADB which is the main breakthrough of our time, and lighting in the future, focussed on lighting communications for safety and decoration and convenient lighting for styling and marketing needs. These slides are like a book, very pleasant to read because in one hour you will see one century of lighting.
Just before decamping to my home office, I had the opportunity to make a night drive with Koito’s newest BladeScan ADB technology—read about it in this week’s episode of the News. I was initially skeptical on the scanning technology and the compactness of the module. After the night drive, I have an easier time believing in the potential of this technology Congratulations to Koito for this great job, let’s see how it will further develop!
Last information: the DVN Tokyo workshop is postponed to 24-25 August, 2020, same hotel, same program. I hope the coronavirus crisis will be totally overcome at this time.
Good luck to you
all, and above all, let’s be confident and keep our hands washed.
We will defeat the coronavirus!
