9 May 2017 |  Salzburg  |  10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

accompanying the European LS-DYNA Conference 2017 

Please note:
The event is fully booked. With your registration you will be put on a waiting list. asc(s members will have priority.

Driverless against the wall?

The megatrends Electromobility and Autonomous Driving move the entire vehicle industry. These trends offer space for new and safe vehicle concepts. Before entering new ground the increasing demands such as increasing productivity, reducing time-to-market, changing customer expectations, improving quality and further improvements in compatibility with the environment as well as the conservation of resources should be taken into account. Topics such as lightweight construction, hybrid material combination and modular design play an increasing important role. How can simulation methods meet the upcoming challenges and what further development are needed?

The simpulseday Crash Analysis for Electric and Autonomous Cars will discuss new solutions for future challenges and show the potential for starting new method development projects with various competence partners. During an interactive session future challenges and project proposals will be discussed and presented to the audience. 

  • new impulses for R&D

  • working on future challenges

  • outside the box thinking

  • networking with decision-makers and experts from science and industry

  • find competence partners for innovative projects

Call for
Project Appetizers

Present and discuss your idea

You have identified a lack of simulation methods or need for improvement? You like to advance new and potential solutions in a quick and efficient way together with other competence partners from industry and science? We are very interested in your specific idea.
