10th Symposium Driving Simulation

 ADAS, AD and Driving Dynamics

6+7 November 2024 | Stuttgart, GER

 accompanied by the ENVITED research cluster assembly


Join us for the milestone 10th Symposium Driving Simulation, where industry pioneers and academic luminaries converge to explore the cutting-edge realms of simulation-driven development processes for ADAS, AD and Driving Dynamics. This landmark event promises a dynamic blend of knowledge-sharing and networking opportunities, providing a fertile ground for professionals to exchange insights and showcase groundbreaking advancements.

Our carefully crafted format fosters a conducive environment for fostering connections, facilitating the presentation of scientific methodologies, application-driven outcomes, and the latest technological breakthroughs.

Whether you're delving into the complexities of virtual driving environments, unraveling the intricacies of driving dynamics, or pushing the boundaries of autonomous driving, this symposium is your gateway to the forefront of automotive innovation. We also offer start-ups and public funded projects a platform for professional exchange, dissemination, and the development of their business relationships.



The automotive industry is undergoing a period of transformation, characterised by rapid technological advances, increasing product complexity and strong global competition. Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers are under immense pressure to deliver state-of-the-art vehicles quickly while maintaining the highest standards of quality and safety. In this demanding environment, simulation and driving simulator technologies have emerged as critical tools that enable automotive companies to meet these challenges effectively and efficiently.

It is clear that meeting these demanding challenges requires a strategic pivot from traditional real-world testing to a hybrid/virtual paradigm. This shift is essential to ensure the safe, reproducible, and efficient development of automotive and mobility technologies. Simulation techniques, coupled with driving simulators, are key tools in this transformational journey.

Vehicle manufacturers and suppliers must leverage driving simulators' extensive solutions, while technology providers must innovate to meet future demands. To overcome these challenges, relentless research and development in virtual test methodologies is crucial. Engineers need robust and reliable simulation methods to navigate the complexities of virtual testing for ADAS, autonomous driving, and vehicle dynamics effectively.


The event is aimed at decision makers and experts from industry and academia in the fields of virtual driving simulation, driving dynamics, ADAS, autonomous driving, and automated mobility systems for passengers and goods.
