In addition, it was noted that a few groups have formed in order to discuss standardization on topics in thevision lighting field.

Those interested are encouraged to contact John Merva.

The VDMA has also recognized the area of embedded vision as a key growth area that could benefit from standardization and has been hosting a working group that is reaching out to other industry groups to see if there are any opportunities.
