DU Automotive lighting engineering

Service : Continuous Education

PRÉSENTATION

Objectives

This training is the result a partnership between the University of Toulon (www.univ-tln.fr) and OPTIS, Inc. (https://www.optis-world.com/).
OPTIS is a world-leading company providing scientifically proven, physics-based software for simulating the behavior of light, simulating human vision, and finally visualizing a product in its final context. The company offers its know-how to over 2400 customers, and many of the 500 largest companies in the world use software developed by OPTIS. In the field of automotive lighting, SPEOS (https://www.optis-world.com/product-offering-light-simulation-virtual-reality-software/SPEOS) has been frequently used by numerous automotive original equipment manufacturers and suppliers.
The aim of this training is to support professionals or students in acquiring the necessary qualifications and methods, as well as using the appropriate light simulation tools in the field of automotive lighting.
This 3-unit course will teach you how to model, simulate, and analyze the photometric efficiency of lighting systems with SPEOS software and how to dynamically experience and test lighting systems embedded in a future vehicle under real conditions with the VRX Driver simulator (https://www.optis-world.com/product-offering-light-simulation-virtual-reality-software/vrx-dynamic-driving-software. This training will also enable you to render photo-realistic aspects of products using High Resolution and High Dynamics Rendering thanks to a unique physics based approach to light and an understanding of the dynamics of human vision.
