Editor’s Notes – Event Introduction
Session One – Keynote speaker: Groupe PSA's strategy for automotive lighting: Challenges and opportunities
14:00 - 14:45 CEST
In the last decade, the automotive lighting engineering field has rapidly evolved, integrating mechanical actuators, sensors and camera detection systems. New light distributions have been created for increasing safety and comfort to the customer.
In this context, the Covid-19 crisis represents a strong challenge to the automotive industry. To overcome these unique challenges, new strategies must be developed to bring about new opportunities and innovative solutions. During this session, Whilk Gonçalves of Groupe PSA will explore some of the latest ideas being explored at the car manufacturing giant, including the evolution of lighting from static to automated systems, the importance of sensing and new ways of communicating through symbols projection and extended lighting.
In this opening session, we will explore:
- Lighting in the era of automated or semi-automated cars
- Modern automotive lighting strategy and new communication techniques
- Optimization techniques to face Covid-19 challenges, including transversal modules, brand identities and smart solutions

Session Two – Near-infrared light for in-cabin sensing and driver monitoring systems (DMS)
15:00 - 15:45 CEST
Join Radiant Vision Systems
' Matt Scholz as he explores applications and performance considerations of near-infrared (NIR) light used in automotive interiors.
Scholz will explore topics such as driver monitoring systems (DMS) and other 3D sensing systems that improve vehicle safety and meet emerging automotive requirements by the EU and the US. He will look at how regulations are driving the market for NIR sensing in automotive interiors and how the role and performance of NIR light sources is gaining new significance within the vehicle.In this session, we will discover:
- The role of near-infrared (NIR) light for driver monitoring systems (DMS) and in-cabin sensing
- Component comparison: LEDs, lasers (VSCELs) and their applications
- Performance considerations of NIR components for automotive interiors
- How to measure NIR components for safe and effective sensing
