AutoSens in Detroit announces full agenda

AutoSens attracts a global audience of automotive engineers

Speakers from Cadence, Intel, NVidia and ST Microelectronics are set to be among the major highlights at the AutoSens automotive sensor exhibition due to be held in Detroit from 22 to 25 May 2017.

The full line-up includes speakers from Woodside Capital Partners, Valeo Vision Systems, Imatest, Sony, ST Microelectronics, NVidia, Cadence Design, Kalray, Dataspeed, Intel, Vision Systems and Miso.

The Detroit event will be the first of two AutoSens shows this year, the second being in Brussels from 19 to 21 September. The Detroit show is expected to attract a global audience of more than 350 technical experts and engineers, attending from disciplines including cameras, lidar, radar, image processing, computer vision, in-car networking, testing and validation, certification, and standards.

With workshops, vehicle demonstrations, conference sessions and exhibition, the event provides an environment to foster collaboration through a culture of openness, sharing and discussion.

“Our conferences explore the challenges faced by engineers and provide the perfect environment to solve them,” said Sophie West, co-founder of event organiser Sense Media Group. “We are not just looking for an audience to sit and listen, but also to participate in the conversation, bring ideas, problems, solutions, and be part of the evolution.”

She described the events as “a regular meeting of minds to share best practice” and said they played a vital role in “steering the ship of innovation” and were essential for staying on the pulse of the latest developments.

“AutoSens has a strong following, backing from within the industry and is building a community of dedicated and passionate automotive engineers and technologists,” she said. “That same community has a powerful desire to see through the roll out of autonomous vehicle technology.”

Robert Stead, conference director, added: “Last year’s event in Brussels was the culmination of 12 months’ hard work, and we are very happy with the result. We learned a lot along the way and many of those lessons are being applied to create the next generation of events in 2017 and beyond. We have some really exciting things in store so the team and I are looking forward to seeing how the industry responds.”

AutoSens in 2017 will see an international awards programme and gala dinner in Europe, extended learning via a series of workshops, continuation of the IEEE P2020 working group activities at both events, and live vehicle demonstrations to showcase the latest technology.

“The European event plans to return to the Belgian capital city of Brussels and take over not one, but two iconic venues in the city,” he said.

The Detroit conference programme of events, agenda and detailed line-up of speakers has been released.

Monday 22 May will be the collaborative track testing day followed on Tuesday 23 May with autonomous vehicle demonstrations and six technical three-hour workshops. Wednesday will be the first conference day with an evening reception at Henry Ford Museum. And Thursday 25 May will be the second conference day.

Experts in robotics, computer vision, automotive electronics, digital imaging, functional safety and more, have been invited because of their experience, recent projects, and ability to shape the future of adas and autonomous vehicle technology.

"AutoSens is the most influential meeting place for OEM, tier-one and supply chain engineers to advance adas technologies and improve automotive safety," said Patrick Denny from Valeo Vision Systems. “It combines high-level technical discussion with a first class social programme, all in the inspirational settings of both the M1 Concourse in Detroit and AutoWorld Museum in Belgium”

In Detroit, Denny will be speaking about establishing image quality sensors for automotive and is the co-chair of the event.

Other highlights include Riccardo Mariani from Intel discussing ISO 26262, Venugopala Madumbu from NVidia talking about adas and autonomous driving, Gregory Roffet from ST Microelectronics looking at image processing and Michael Mao from Cadence Design Systems speaking about embedded applications.

"Driverless cars and adas need the best sensors and processing capabilities to understand their environment," said Marco Jacobs from Videantis. “AutoSens has quickly established itself as the event of the year to see, hear and meet the key companies and people in this space.”
