Forum for Automotive Lighting Simulation and VR

15 / 16 May 2018  |  Stuttgart

Focus: Lighting the way for self driving vehicles.


The subject of light is becoming more and more important for automobile manufacturers. The lighting technologies in the automotive field have made a rapid progress in recent decades. In the early 1990 halogen bulbs replaced conventional bulbs. Today LED, OLED and laser technologies offer not only very high light output and new lighting concepts for greater safety. They are increasingly being understood as core elements of the design. LightSim is the new forum for experts from the field of automotive light simulation and virtual reality. The networking event picks up the impact of major automotive market trends on virtual development of lighting technologies: autonomous driving, efficiency and electromobility, digitization and connectivity as well as individualization. Therefore the importance of high-resolution lighting technologies is continuously increasing. Vehicles of the future must communicate with the driver and other road users. The event will show latest simulation and VR technologies and discuss future trends and requirements. The organizers want to offer science and industry a better access and possibilities for exchange and future collaborations.
