  • International Symposium on Automotive Lighting

    ISAL 2019


    After having received nearly 1000 experts at ISAL 2017, it would be a great pleasure to welcome international designers, engineers, scientists and decision makers of the automotive lighting industry in 2019.
    With autonomous driving moving steadily forward, new opportunities and challenges arise. Not only could new signaling functions be needed but the complete exterior lighting for the passengers could be reimagined. Additionally to this, the challenges of developing low energy headlamps without sacrificing visual performance for the drivers remain as purely electric vehicles gain popularity and market shares. Furthermore, the development of new top of the line, high resolution headlamps for top-tier vehicles will continue and new technological and physiological findings will be welcome additions to the symposium.
    ISAL 2019 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 automotive lighting.
