EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Photonics for Mobility of the Future
Online Event

In cooperation with

Photonics will be key to increasing the safety and efficiency of future mobility, as well as supporting the driver in making decisions about the different events that may be encountered. On one hand, vehicles increasingly incorporate infrared technologies, LIDAR, displays and other types of sensors related to autonomous driving and driver support. On the other hand, the advent of electric mobility is a strong driver for laser welding and assembly. In this meeting, we will discuss with the full supply chain of laser technology for automotive and a few end-users, how it is possible to further improve the state of the art of the technology also with the help of AI for process monitoring and automation.



Winfried Reeb studied precision engineering and optoelectronics at the University of Applied Sciences in Aalen, Germany. Since 1993 he is a business partner for photonics companies all around the world. He joined LASER COMPONENTS as a product engineer and is in charge of the company’s active components business unit which includes the fast-growing LiDAR business.
