International Symposium on Automotive Lighting 2017
In 1995 the first symposium took place in the “Kekulé” lecture room at the TU Darmstadt. Since then, more than two decades have elapsed and the location of the event has been changed to the immense and representative new congress centre “darmstadtium”. After having received over 800 experts at ISAL 2015, it would be a great pleasure to welcome international designers, engineers, scientists and decision makers in automotive lighting industry at the ISAL 2017.
A lot of research and development focuses on high resolution adaptive and laser-based high beam to improve the visibility distance and general driving comfort for front lighting. Further research topics include adaptive rear lights to mini-mize discomfort and maximize road safety for following cars. In the meantime new challenges for the automotive lighting community arise in form of energy efficient lighting for purely electric vehicles and lighting design and functions for autonomous driving.
ISAL 2017 will surely encourage the exchange between lighting engineers, road safety experts and regulative bodies. They will have the opportunity to present the most recent results of research and development to continue the established traditions of this conference to be able to promote a bright future for automo-tive lighting.
