Autonomous Driving Summit USA

May 16-17, 2018, Suburban Collection Showplace, Novi, Michigan, USA
Visit dSPACE at Booth No. 86

Automated driving, electrification and connectivity: these three development trends are putting pressure on the automotive industry, and also making it one of the most fascinating research fields around. Few other industries are growing – and advancing – so quickly.

As the complexity of onboard electronic components increases, so does the potential for malfunctions. Many experts now describe tomorrow’s autonomous, connected automobiles as ‘smartphones on wheels’ that have similar vulnerabilities when sending or receiving data wirelessly or via W-LAN. Radar, Lidar and camera systems demand error-free communication, and even surfaces like car glass are becoming substrates for onboard electronics.

Increasingly, transmissions too are becoming part of a networked system that extends beyond the drive and vehicle, while growing electrification makes automobiles more complex and places even higher demands on E/E systems. As a result, securing functional safety is another hot topic across all research fields.

For carmakers, integrating electronic components successively while simultaneously meeting safety norms such as ISO 26262 poses a big challenge.

More than 100 decision makers in the industry and 85+ exhibitors will be on hand to discuss these kinds of topics at the 2018 Autonomous Driving Summit. This event is part of CTI Automotive Week USA being held jointly at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan.
