3. International VDI Conference - Safety Systems

  • Listen to up to date approaches and assessments from the field of safety systems 
  • Meet international experts 
  • Discuss the effects of automated driving on the passive and integrated safety systems
3rd International VDI Conference “Safety Systems”

Since the trend towards driver assistance systems and automation is steadily increasing automotive safety needs an extended definition. Vehicle safety stands not only for occupant protection but also for accident prevention. The increasing number of interconnecting active and passive safety systems require a comprehensive concept. The focus of the 3rd International conference „Safety Systems” is to detect how automated driving influences future accident scenarios and automotive interior concepts and – as a result - a rethink in the field of passive safety systems.
