2nd Symposium Driving Simulation

June 29 - 30, 2016 |  Berlin

Cooperative event of Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart, TU Berlin and VDC Fellbach

Heading Towards Autonomous Driving

Further registrations are only possible at the event location on 29/30 June


The 2nd Symposium Driving Simulation discusses the current state of driving simulation technology. The topical key points will focus on systems for driver assistance systems, autonomous driving and also on user-centric development. The symposium’s practical relevance is highlighted by examples for successful implementations and by a visit of the driving simulator of the TU Berlin. The symposium offers an excellent platform for exchanges between driving simulation experts from the fields of science, IT, or the industry.

Ever stricter global standards together with the rising pressure on costs in the automotive industry have made an increasing shift of versatile test scenarios toward a virtual world necessary. Technology providers need to make the numerous possible solutions offered by driving simulators their own, while OEMs and suppliers have to develop them further for the future. All too often this potential is not fully exploited due to the increasing complexity of these systems and a heterogeneous hardware and software environment. With the 2nd Symposium Driving Simulation the organizers want to offer science and industry a better access.

Target Audience:

The event is aimed at decision-makers and experts in the field of virtual driving simulation.
