Whistling While We Work PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 August 2019

As you've seen in these last weeks, every Tuesday we bring you all the news about lighting, driver assistance, and human and machine driver vision—even over the summer holidays. The DVN team are hard at work to keep you informed, and to build forthcoming reports. Over the next four months you can anticipate:

  • The IAA (Frankfurt motor show) report on 17 September—several DVN experts will go see the show to publish the report promptly before the end of the show;
  • The ISAL report in October, wherein you will find summaries of the lectures, a great many pictures, and links to released lecture slide shows;
  • A new report in November on vehicle lighting in America—DVN Chief Editor Daniel Stern is already working to make a best-in-class report covering what's doing on the island where the rest of the world's rules and practices don't apply;
  • Our interior lighting report comes in December, and Jean-Paul Charret, former R&D director of R&D at Valeo Lighting, is visiting involved companies to make a high-quality report.

Our team is also working on improvements to the DVN website to integrate DVN-I and to have a more modern look.

And we're preparing for the lidar conference to be held in early December.

Dear readers, from all of us at Driving Vision News, we wish you happy holidays for those going and already on holiday, and a lot of pleasure reading our Driving Vision News productions for those who are present in their office this summer!

Sincerely yours,

DVN President

SeddLED: Dominant's New Integrated RGB LEDs PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 19 August 2019

About a decade ago, RGB interior lighting began to offer adjustable ambience and brand identity in some premium cars. Then came dynamic lighting effects for different scenarios, like welcome light effects and driver alerts in emergency situations such as pre-collision and blind spot warning.

But RGB ambient lighting installations can be complicated and costly, needing lareg investments in measurement equipment for RGB calibration during the SMT process, high component counts, and complex designs for each lighting module. Moreover, it grows unwieldy and unfeasible for systems comprising more than 100 LEDs.

Now, automotive LED supplier Dominant are offering a new package family called seddLED (Smart Embedded Digital Driver LED), which they call the world's first true digital LED integrating RGB LEDs, drivers, and advanced communication links in a single package.
