AutoSens in Brussels reveals full agenda

AutoSens returns to Brussels

The full agenda for September’s AutoSens conference in Brussels has been revealed. Vehicle Electronics is a media partner of the event, which will be held from 19 to 21 September 2017 at AutoWorld.

The third in its series of events, AutoSens is expected to attract more than 400 technical experts and engineers, from disciplines such as cameras, lidar, radar, image processing, computer vision, in-car networking, testing and validation, certification, and standards.

The four-day programme of the adas technology conference includes six workshops, vehicle demonstrations, more than 60 keynote-style conference sessions, exhibition floor and eight industry awards.

The conferences explore the problems faced by engineers and bring together the trailblazers in the field to solve them. The audience aren’t expected to just sit and listen, but also to participate in the conversation, bring ideas, problems, solutions, and be an active part of the event.

Topics being covered include: camera developments; emerging applications; sensing beyond the visual spectrum; functional safety testing and validations; sensor fusion; imaging standards; quality and benchmarking; and image processing requirements.

“AutoSens has a strong following, backing within the industry and is building a community of dedicated and passionate automotive engineers and technologists,” said Robert Stead, conference director. “That same community has a powerful desire to see through the roll out of autonomous vehicle technology. Last year’s event in Brussels and most recently our US debut in Detroit were the culmination of two years’ hard work, and we are very happy with the result. Our team learned a lot along the way and many of those lessons are being applied to create the next generation of events. We have some really exciting things in store so the team and I are looking forward to seeing how the industry responds.”

The European event returns to the Belgian capital city of Brussels and takes over two iconic venues in the city – AutoWorld for the main conference and exhibition and The Atomium for the AutoSens Awards on 20 September.

“Keeping engineers at the core, AutoSens in Brussels will see an international awards programme and gala dinner in Europe, extended learning through an enhanced series of workshops, continuation of the IEEE P2020 working group activities, and vehicle demos to showcase the latest technology as we develop the adas and autonomous vehicle technology community this year,” said Stead.

Speakers already confirmed include Philipp Hoffmann from BMW, Heiko Hirschmueller from Roboception, Erich Ramschak from AVL, Markus Heimberger from Valeo, Chris Davies from Belron, Saskia de Craen of SWOV, Paul Jennings at the University of Warwick, Sheldon Russell from Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, Junmuk Lee at Hyundai Autron, and Erik Vinkhuyzen from the Nissan Research Center.
