Automated Driving 2017

Automated driving and autonomous vehicles represent a major disruptive innovation for the automotive industry as we know it and lead to new mobility concepts. Car OEMs are defining their strategic position on autonomous cars. However, other actors like automotive suppliers and software providers as well as innovative mobility providers or companies such as Google or Apple are also preparing for a world with self-driving cars. Even though this disruptive innovation is still in the making, all players involved have to answer key strategic and technological questions and need to deal with competitive forces as well as governmental regulations.

Automated and autonomous driving will revolutionize the automotive world

The wide adoption of fully automated cars in the future will cause a great change in usage, ownership and design of vehicles. In some areas with controlled environment, such as mining or farming, autonomous vehicles are already in use. On-road trucks will probably be the first vehicles driving (semi-) autonomously. In the short term, fully autonomous cars will not be found on-road. Nevertheless, many drivers’ assistance systems are standard in cars today already. They warn of traffic jams and help with parking maneuvers. These systems are the basis for automated driving and prepare for a future with safe, cooperative and accident-free autonomous driving. However, many technological, infrastructural and legal challenges still need to be solved. Discuss these key issues with international experts at our 4th international conference Automated Driving next July in the Estrel Hotel and Congress Centre in Berlin.

Don’t miss the following keynotes:

  • Autonomous Driving, Digital Infrastructure & Mobility Solutions as Key Drivers for the Automotive Industry
    given by Johannes Jungwirth, Chief Digital Officer, Volkswagen AG, Germany
  • Volvo Cars development of Autonomous Vehicles, in cooperation with Uber and Zenuity
    given by Kent Melin, M. Sc., Senior Technical Leader, Electrical System Design, Volvo Car Group, Sweden

Further internationally renowned experts on the conference stage are coming from companies such as Toyota ITC, BMW, Continental, TomTom, Uber, 2Getthere, NVIDIA, Porsche, Tata, Robert Bosch and many more.

The following topics will be covered in 2017:
