Choose one out of three Round Tables and discuss in your group how intelligent lighting systems can support the driver in the respective situation.

Situation A | Car sharing – Car-as-a-service (caas) is one of the four big trends in automotive. Is there a way how interior lighting can help the driver to intuitively manage driving a car he sits in for the first time?
Situation B | Automatization level 3 - The vehicles drives in autonomous mode when suddenly, the driver needs to get back in the loop. How can light support a quick and efficient comeback of the driver to his driving responsibility?
Situation C | Truck driver – A truck driver spends his entire working life in the cabin of the truck. Light can play an essential role for truck drivers, once in keeping him focussed during his long journey, and second in creating a home atmosphere in the small cabin. What can be done to support truck drivers?
