AutoSens, now established as the world’s most forward-thinking ADAS technology conference, will take place again this year in Detroit, Michigan USA (22-25 May) and Brussels, Belgium (19-21 September).

The event in Detroit will attract a global audience of 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 the perfect 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. 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,” says Sophie West, co-founder of event organisers Sense Media Group.

“These are now a regular meeting of minds to share best practice, they play a vital role in steering the ship of innovation and are 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. That same community has a powerful desire to see through the roll out of autonomous vehicle technology.”

The next generation of events – 2017
Robert Stead, Conference Director, highlights the hard work behind the international brand: “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!”

He continues, “Keeping engineers at the core, AutoSens in 2017 will see an international awards program and gala dinner in Europe, extended learning via an enhanced series of workshops, continuation of the IEEE P2020 working group activities at both events, and live vehicle demos to showcase the latest technology as we break yet more new ground in events for the ADAS community in Detroit.”

“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.”
