Expert Forum for Lighting Simulation and Virtual Reality

2nd December 2021 | 2 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.  |  Online Live Event


The development of new optical and lighting technologies is experiencing a rapid evolution. Increasingly powerful and efficient light sources are being combined with intelligent sensors and controls to create complex product innovations. These must be driven not only on the product side, but also in the design and selection of suitable methods in product development. Here, too, complexity is constantly increasing and more powerful virtual development environments are emerging. Computer simulation and virtual reality methods are increasingly helping to master the growing complexity of lighting technologies. LightSim Spotlight stimulates professional exchange between academia, simulation providers and end users. The networking event addresses the impact of key trends as well as external requirements in the automotive and related industries and showcases the latest approaches to virtual product development. The organizers aim to provide both academia and industry with better access and new opportunities for professional exchange and future collaborations.
