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
