DrivingVisionNews.com Introduction to 2013 US DVN Workshop theme and agenda There is a great need in the worldwide lighting community to have more information about cutting edge technologies in a time where there are so many new technologies coming. In the US, traditionally a region with relatively slack interest in car lights, now lighting has become a strong lever not only for styling differentiation but also for safety performance better than the basic legal requirements, and for energy savings. The arrival of cameras brings intelligence to front lights so that the drivers feel safer. DRLs and signal lights create new day and night brand identification. The possibilities of simulation give engineers new ways to develop more projects, helping to solve the increasing engineering workload. The rubric for the workshop is "How New Technology Will Enhance Night Driver Vision". This workshop will present the latest achievements in all these technologies and we've added regulatory topics to the docket. We are now in a global industry where road infrastructure and vehicle mix variance among the world's countries aren't nearly so great as they used to be. Scientifically, it is time to try to harmonise the lighting requirements in North America and those used elsewhere in the world because it is difficult to find any traffic safety data to support national approaches. This workshop also gives new possibilities to Tier 2 suppliers to show their contribution to cutting edge technologies, and offer it to the Tier 1 suppliers. Once again this year our meet-andgreet soirĂŠe dinner the night before the symposium itself has allowed a large exchange of experience, desires, and ideas among North American, Japanese, Korean, and European participants on innovative technologies for automotive lighting.

Feedback from lighting congresses and motorshow during H2-2012 Tokyo DVN Workshop, July 4, 2012: The event was a smashing success, well attended by more than 130 experts from all sectors of the lighting and driver assistance community. DVN published a detailed report on the event. Attendees mainly Japanese, from automakers, researchers, regulators, academics, practitioners, and Tier-1 and -2 suppliers actively participated to the exchanges, panels, and round table discussions. What we retain of this workshop is: - The strong implication of Japanese players presenting and actively taking part in all discussions about new lighting technologies. - The high level of lectures given by VIP, managers in their field. - The importance to conduct harmonisation of regulations in a worldwide market. - The greater influence of styling and styling differentiation with the arrival of LED technologies - The energy saving as a pivotal driver Following Keynote addresses of GTB President Geoff Draper and JASIC research division Executive Director Ushio Ueno, 7 presentations rounded out the rest of the morning's docket. Wolfgang Huhn, Audi General Manager of Lighting and Vision systems outlined the seven most important factors which influence automotive styling and designers. Kamislav Fadel, AL R&D Vice President presented a thorough enquiry into when energy savings will become a pivotal driver in automotive lighting. Olivier Barthomeuf , Ichikoh Research Manager, presented a Bi-LED standard headlamp module and initiating what promises to be an interesting discussion on standardisation. Masaru Sasaki , Koito's Deputy General Manager presented approaches to make LED headlamps affordable. Benoist Fleury , Valeo Lighting Systems' Marketing Director advanced the sensible proposition that styling trends can best be known by scrutinising auto shows; he presented his assessment of lighting on display at recent motor shows in Frankfurt, Tokyo, Detroit, Geneva, and Beijing. Rainer Neumann, Visteon's R&D Director and GTB Front Lighting W.G. President presented the latest results from the newest field tests. Takashi Sato , Stanley R&D Chief with a presentation on headlamp styling and optics. The afternoon docket included panel sessions and round tables: Panel 1, chaired by Geoff Draper, focused on regulations. It was a unique opportunity to exchange experience and opinions within and among the Japanese, Chinese, and European vehicle lighting communities. Panel 2, chaired by Ralf Sch채fer, discussed the future of new light source technologies LED, OLED, and lasers. 3 round tables centred to round simulation, components and materials, mechatronics and actuator-related matters of leveling, AFS, adaptive lighting systems, and electronics.

Main takeaway points 1. Thanks to the unlimited styling and appearance-differentiation possibilities of LEDs and related technology and technique, cars presented at this year's Mondial prove there is room for new lighting technologies even in a down-trending market provided they help to reach the hearts of potential customers. 2. Several new important mass market production car models are launched with LED headlamps, namely Ford Mondeo and Seat Leon, now standing side by side with premium BMW 7 Series and Audi A3. We can see a developing picture of the wide variety of designs possible with LED technology. 3. Stylish and advanced HID headlamps outnumber all other front light technologies displayed on premium and midrange cars. HID technology is getting a renewal boost thanks to the arrival of intelligent lighting features more practicably implemented with HID than with halogen, and lower-cost, reduced-wattage HID systems. 4. Stylish LED rear lamps are increasingly prevalent on cars with LED or HID headlamps. 5. Car makers like Ford, Chevrolet, and Volkswagen emphasise the importance of styling, mainly in lighting. Their designers now explain their work with videos using sketches, slides and simulations. 6. Audi are still the primary car maker to push forward lighting as a technological differentiation factor, but Hyundai-Kia also understand lighting is a great lever of perceived value and they invest a lot in it. 7. Several car makers like Renault, Volkswagen, and Opel had their entire exhibition area focused on the presentation of their newly-launched cars. DVN Workshop January 14-15, 2013

DrivingVisionNews.com VISION congress, October 2012: VISION's lectures, night-drive demonstrations, and for the first time technological presentations, combined to make an exceptional congress on new technologies. Around 400 people attended. What we retain of this workshop is: - The high number of attendee, 400. - The high level of lectures given by VIP, managers in their field. - The confirmation of the importance of new technologies as Glare free high beam and marker light, using actuators or matrix beam. - The interest of night drive demonstrations confirming the lectures in field test Best lectures Michael Kleinkes Best In Class presentation with a huge number of prototypes showing the possibilities in signal lights in the future. Hella want to offer a multitude of innovative solutions car makers. Pierre Albou Matrix beam is not any more a dream, but should come to the market quickly. Pierre Albou showed an interesting solution allowing implementing efficiently this new technology. Carlos Elvira Unique headlight in its segment which is not only famous for its design and real novelty but also because it incorporates an exceptional homogeneous lighting at quite a reasonable cost. Ernst-Olaf Rosenhahn Much data explain the influence of the different components, LED, optical system, electronics on CO2 consumption and efficiency. 10W vs 60W for halogen to have 500Lm will be possible soon. Masaru Sasaki A very ambitious way to make LED HL. Key remaining issue is the cost difference between halogen and LED lights. How can we convince end-user to pay more for LED. Rainer Neumann There is a weak influence of the headlamp (halogen, HID, LED) on de Boer rating. Replacing the 2000Lm source threshold for auto-levelling with more objective criteria seems a worthy goal. Thomas Reiners Importance of a better standardisation, hence the great job done by the GTB. Standardization has to be improved in order to improve safety and to decrease the cost. Night-drive demonstrations - The main strong points: • Performance differential with HID or LED is such that driving at night in bad weather with legal halogen headlamps can legitimately be considered dangerous; • LED headlamps have evolved significantly since the 2010 demonstration, and can produce a good light effectively equal to HID in terms of coverage and beam flux, which permits safe driving at night in bad weather; • Glare-free high beam is at long last a dependable, high-performance feature which permits maximum possible seeing range at all times for the driver, even in traffic. Technological presentations 4 presentations from AL, Hella, Valeo, Varroc, ZKW were done. Very interesting presentation from ZKW about the new BMW 7 LED Series headlamps DVN Workshop January 14-15, 2013

DrivingVisionNews.com Hauss Der Technik This one-day symposium is taking place every two years in Berlin and brings together leading German experts. The event is organized by “HAUS DER TECHNIK “, an institute representing different universities. This year the symposium, with 40 attendees, was devoted to the development of LED and ADAS technologies. The overall theme was “Environmental-friendly Lighting Concepts and Strategies for the Future” What we retain of this symposium is: - “Electronic, Dynamic Light “will be the future trend of cutting edge automotive lighting. - Need of engineering resources with the arrival of LED technologies. Standardisation and modularization are the best solutions. - Example of BMW on the consequent brand management. - The support of regulation authorities for innovative solutions is very important.

Striving for harmonization through performance based requirements will be a topic of the future. BMW lecture on laser beam BMW started cooperation with a set maker. Laser light could be concentrated just on the 1 by 1 mm chip. The light is directed on the chip and generates a luminance value 4 times brighter than LED chips. The spot on the chip generates a high temperature and does have a very small tolerance for aiming. The colour homogeneity is a difficulty. For legislation there is a chance to define laser light as a kind of LED light, only the chip and the laser are separated by each other! Audi’s Dr Huhn lecture Audi which lead LED technology are continuously distributing LED headlamps to all models in the future. They will move towards the non-mechanical solutions with LED as Matrix beam. It is electronic light as the software to control the various light functions does have an important role. Dr Huhn also showed new dynamic functions like sweeping DI, Matrix Beam, possible OLED applications as “The Swarm” rear lamp cluster. An overview about energy aspects was included. BMW’s Aulbach reported that BMW will continue to swivel the beam (dynamic bending) both, for Xenon as well as LED glare free high beam. They think they can get better performance and will have lower cost headlamps. VW’s Thamm explained VW are looking for modularization parts in LED for achieving customer satisfaction in terms of replacement, complexity reduction, reasonable cost, and engineering capacity time reduction. Osram’s Reiners lecture explained that Philips and Osram have their individual strategy, therefore a module for LED front lighting will not come that fast. Additionally, a differentiation element on introducing LED headlamps is necessary! First actions in GTB have been started for rear lights and light guide coupling. Hella’s Kleinkes detailed the works on glare free high beam systems and marking light systems, mechanical and non-mechanical. He presented the huge improvements in visibility distances. Mercedes-Benz’s Mai presented results on condensation and ways to avoid or reduce it. AL’s Böbel reported on development speed of HL and the various parameters influencing this. In general, the trend in automotive lighting is clearly shifting to intelligent lighting systems through the combination with ADAS-systems. DVN Workshop January 14-15, 2013

DrivingVisionNews.com DVN vision on future of lighting By Hector Fratty

Since 1966, I have been a passionate participant in the wonderful world of car lighting. Over a professional lifespan of more than 4 decades dedicated to this industry, I've had the opportunity to interact and work with pioneering characters like Pierre Cibié, François Bailly, Reinhard Röpke, Gerhard Lindae, David Moore, and Umberto Candoni, all substantial contributors to the evolution of lighting technology from 1960-1990. In the 1990-2000 timeframe during which electronic lighting ascended, I met visionaries such as Ferdinand Piesch, Martin Winterkorn and Noel Goutard, discussing and predicting the high importance of lighting and related technological developments. Then in the 2000-2011 period, which saw the dawn of intelligent light on earth, prime movers like Wolfgang Huhn, Uwe Kostanzer, Ingolf Schneider, Michael Hamm, Rainer Neumann, Michael Kleinkes, Jean-Paul Charret, Masaru Sasaki, Ralf Schäfer, and others are doing a great job developing, commercialising, and promoting lighting technologies. A lot of new technologies are in progress and GTB President Geoff Draper, notably among many skilled and talented technologists, is doing a great job introducing these technologies in the regulations so they don't fall behind the state of the art. We are now in a period of vast and fast growth for LED technologies with resultant major changes in automotive lighting. LEDs' big benefits of new styling differentiation, energy reduction, and high lighting performance potential—higher than HID for premium cars and higher than halogen for low- and middle-range cars—mean we're in a definite and irreversible shift towards ever greater presence of LEDs on the road. Help of ADAS and mainly cameras which allow to better “see” the environment are generating “adaptive lighting systems” and new functionalities as glare free high beam. I am sure that in the 2020’s, car lights will not be the same as today even in the low and middle range cars. The pace of evolution is unprecedented. Since January last year when we first organized this US DVN Workshop in Rochester, the zooming pace of development and improvement in the field has been such that we are organising this present workshop to introduce OLED and Laser technologies together with new developments in glare free high beam and Matrix beams. .
