  • Germany flag Germany Munich

Even though the global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented, the automotive sensor and electronics industry looks optimistic, and it brings new opportunities for automotive sensor technology.

Further adoption of ADAS and future development trends like miniaturisation, integration, intelligence and multifunction, as well as increasing demand for safety and security are among the major boosting factors to grow the global automotive sensors market.

Exploring the advanced development of automotive sensor and electronics technologies, their components, and applications to enrich vehicle performance, safety, and driver experience, the experts in this field will exchange their recent practical approaches towards enabling the next level of sensing in highly automated driving.

With the key players in the industry, we will continue exploring the future of automotive sensors and electronics at the 7th Automotive Sensors and Electronics Summit on April 26-27, 2022.

About the Automotive Sensors and Electronic Summit and Exhibition

Even though automotive experts in Silicon Valley were focused on making self-driving cars a reality by 2022, COVID-19 has delayed high expectations of connected and automated vehicles on the road.

There are six levels of vehicle autonomy; where we are now in 2022 and how far away are self-driving cars?

The technology enabling Level 3 is available, but regulations and standards are required, which keeps the state of AD on Level 2.5.

A safe and highly automated driving, focusSing on improving vehicle maneuverability and occupant safety continues advancing through an efficient combination of ADAS sensors and technologies, including: 

  •  LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging)
  •  RADAR (Radio Detection and Ranging)
  • CAMERA
  • V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication
  • Vision-based alternative systems
  • Ultrasonic
  • Airbag
  • Tire pressure
  • Rain

Advanced driving Levels 2 and 3 require enhanced safety systems that provide features such as:

  • Automated cruise control (ACC)
  • Automated emergency braking (AEB)
  • Lane-keeping assist (LKAS)
  • Blind-spot detection (BSD)

With the key stakeholders in the area, we will explore the autonomous, connected trends to shift from a basic driver assistance system to fully autonomous driving: 

  • Sensor technologies will continue advancements in robustness, accuracy, reliability, sophistication, miniaturisation, integration, and multifunction
  • Driver assistance technology will continue a move from human drivers towards computers, enabling a safer and comfortable driving experience
  • Image sensors are considered to be the fastest-growing technology, and ultrasonic, radar, LiDAR, and optical sensors will be providing a more comprehensive view of a vehicle's surroundings
  • Safety and control are the fastest-growing application, and engineers will continue facing a race to achieve robust, reliable, and safe sensor fusion
  • The transition from ADAS systems to fully autonomous vehicles will be provided by a combination of sensor technology and connected vehicles
  • As ADAS and connectivity features interact, vehicles will learn to communicate with each other, making it easier to navigate roads and to lower driver stress
  • Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT), and autonomous controls technologies will be deployed more widely, making cars 'smarter'
  • The sensor requirements - data processing and storage - will replace the driver’s capabilities without compromising safety, and make ADS technology expensive for the nearest future

While the future of autonomous vehicles is promising and exciting, and new ADAS technologies continue enabling higher levels of autonomy, as Level 5 driverless vehicle autonomy is still down the road, the number and sophistication of sensors and electronics will be increasing.

Join the experts at the 7th Automotive Sensors and Electronics Summit and Exhibition on April 26-27 2022 to:

  •  Analyse use cases and applications for ADAS/AD sensors
  •  Present advanced developments and identify potential partnerships around sensor and electronics
  •  Explore novel sensing and perception systems, enabling self-driving car, and the corresponding future expectations

See you at #VLautoSE April  2022!
