Save the Date for the 2nd International VDI conference “Automotive Sensor Systems”, taking place in Munich on February 13-14, 2019!
Innovative Sensor Technology as the Backbone of Autonomous Driving
Automotive technology is progressing at an incredible pace. On the way from partly automated towards fully autonomous driving, exact environmental information provided by sensors (Radar, Lidar, Camera, Ultrasonic) is essential. Artificial intelligence is using, processing and interpreting the data gathered by sensors to make substantiated decisions. Accordingly, the performance of existing sensors has to be optimized, new systems need to be developed and requirements on the sensors (in technical, qualitative and economic terms) have to be redefined in order to make them scalable and even more safe and powerful.
Main topics of the 2nd international “Automotive Sensor Systems” conference include:
- Challenges & Trends in ADAS Sensing Technologies (Radar, Lidar, Camera, Ultrasonic)
- Innovations and future Requirements for Sensor Systems
- Functional Safety and Automotive Security Challenges
- The Role of AI in processing and interpreting Sensor Data
- The regulatory Framework & Development of Standards
- Excursus: Driver Monitoring
Framework Program of the Conference
Take part in excellent networking opportunities and meet international experts, specialists and other participants for inspiring discussions both during the networking breaks as well as at the evening event in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Accompanying and complementing the conference we also offer a pre-conference international workshop on “Satellite Navigation 2.0”. Book both events and benefit from a discounted package price.
