8th Automotive Sensors & Electronics Summit

  • 22nd – 23rd February 2023
  • Germany flag Germany Munich

More new and sophisticated automotive sensors and electronics are being incorporated in the automotive driver-assist systems in 2022. They depend heavily on a mix of surround-view cameras and radar sensors to detect the vehicle on the road and the position of other automobiles. Since the requirements and expectations for driver-assist systems are growing, new automotive sensors capabilities will be developed.

Further adoption of ADAS, future advanced development trends like miniaturisation, integration, intelligence, multifunction, and increasing demand for safety and security will continue to play a dominant role in growing the global automotive sensors market.

Going above and beyond for new sensing technologies and applications to enrich success and performance of driver-assist systems and safe manoeuvring for autonomous and self-driving car, the experts in the field will exchange the latest practical strategies towards achieving the next level of sensing in highly automated driving.

With the key stakeholders in the industry, we will continue exploring the evolving future of automotive sensors and electronics at the #VLautoSE on February 22-23, 2023.

About the Automotive Sensors & Electronic Summit & Exhibition

The driverless cars experience is becoming a closer reality with the approaching of 2023.

More new and sophisticated automotive sensors and electronics are being incorporated in the automotive driver-assist systems in 2022.

There are numerous benefits to autonomous vehicles, and in particularly, autonomous driving is bringing a safer ride, if to analyse human errors, and enabling in the car the sensing technologies like:

  • Cameras
  • Radar
  • Sonar
  • Lidar
  • GPS
  • Infrared sensors

There are numerous challenges related to autonomous driving, and popular questions arise, such as:

  • How soon will self-driving cars be an everyday reality?
  • Where will autonomous driving be in 2023?

A follow-up to these questions is that the technology, enabling level 3 autonomous driving, is available and we might see it already next year, while the technical hurdles still exist, related to:

  • Vehicle ability to handle all conditions, keeping performance standards
  • Consumer acceptance barriers
  • Regulatory
  • Legislation

Hands-free partially automated highway driving assist systems will start being enabled on quite many cars in the upcoming year. These driving assist systems heavily depends on a mix of surround-view cameras and radar sensors to detect the vehicle on the road and position of other automobiles. Since the requirements and expectations for driver-assist systems are growing, new automotive sensors capabilities will be developed.

Further adoption of ADAS, future advanced development trends like miniaturization, integration, intelligence, multifunction, and increasing demand for safety and security will continue play the dominant role to grow global automotive sensors market.

Join the experts at the 8th Automotive Sensors & Electronics Summit and Exhibition on February 22-23, 2023, to:

  • Go beyond and out for new sensing technologies and applications
  • Enrich success and performance of driver-assist systems
  • Enhance safe manoeuvring for autonomous and self-driving car
  • Extend partnerships in automotive, sensors and electronics

Observe another unprecedented paradigm shift in advanced sensing systems

At the #VLautoSE February 2023 the key stakeholders in the automotive area will exchange the latest practical strategies towards

  • Achieving the next level of sensing in highly automated driving
