Micro-LEDs are taking the lead when it comes to interior lighting designs for the automotive industry. In this meeting, and with the support of Driving Vision News (DVN), we will gather the requirements of car manufacture and TIER-1 suppliers together with the photonics companies for lighting, searching for technical solutions and discussing real business opportunities.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you”creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships

Watch us LIVE on YouTube

The EPIC Online Meeting on Micro-LED for Automotive Lighting was great, not only because of the subject, which was very exciting, but also the great organization by the EPIC crew.

The EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Micro-LED for Automotive Lighting was great, perhaps the best in format I've seen so far. Results of the meeting have already begun to show. Keep up that spirit!
