Automotive Sensor Systems - International VDI Conference

At the international VDI conference “Automotive Sensor Systems” you will learn about current sensor technologies in the context of the road from automated to fully autonomous driving. Take part in various expert presentations to gain insights in the increasing requirements on sensor systems, the importance of sensor and information fusion as well as the significance of approaches to test, simulate and verify sensor performance. You will also have the chance to find out more about the relationship between functional safety and automotive security and the role of artificial intelligence in processing and interpreting sensor data.

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) 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.

Conference Topics

The main topics of the international “Automotive Sensor Systems – Sensor Technologies on the Way to Autonomous Driving” conference include, among others:

  • Advanced Sensing Solutions (Radar, Lidar, Camera, Maps)
  • Changing and Future Requirements for Sensor Systems
  • Functional Safety and Automotive Security as it relates to Safety
  • Testing, Simulation & Verification of Sensor Performance
  • The Role of Artificial Intelligence in processing and interpreting Sensor Data

On top of that, you will also find out more about:

  • Regulations and Standards
  • Insurance Aspects
  • Outside the Box: Sensor Technologies in other Industries
