Lighting Up the Future of Mobility

Now in its 5th successful year, IQPC’s Advanced Lighting for Automotive conference is back and 2020 is ushering in a new era for the series. We’re rebranding to reflect the industry shift in redefining the role automotive will play in the mobility ecosystem. Welcome to Lighting Design for Mobility.

At the industry leading event for automotive lighting, speak directly to OEMs about their roadmap for automotive lighting over the next decade, and their vision for intelligent lighting. We hold a unique place in the market, with delegates citing AutoIQ’s lighting event as having, “very interesting topics and nice discussions” (Engineer, Toyota Europe SA), and “overall excellent networking with both existing and possibly new customers and industry partners” (Dow Silicons Belgium).

With Lighting Design for Mobility 2020, we’re taking our educational content and delegate experience even further: 
    • Shining a Spotlight on Mobility. Automotive is now just one part of the transportation ecosystem. How can we leverage lighting to help automotive keep its edge as micro-mobility platforms move to the fore?
    • Alexa, Create some Ambiance.  Examining the interface between interiors engineering and biometrics to change in-cabin experience for the passenger. Personalize, evoke luxury and create comfort through in-cabin ambient lighting, voice activated controls, and smart textiles.
