AMAA 2017 "Smart Systems Transforming the Automobile"

Contributed by: VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH

From 2017-09-25 to 2017-09-26, Germany
The automotive sector faces disruptive transformation within the next years. “Smart Systems Transforming the Automobile” will be at the heart of the answer to these disrupting changes. Thus, this will be the topic of this year’s 21st edition of the International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) to be held on 25-26 September 2017 in Berlin.
Big data analysis, e.g., is already crucial for automation and will further enable cities to better respond to traffic issues, the Internet of Things will improve connected driving and together with block chain facilitate mobility-as-a-service, robots and artificial intelligence will make human drivers obsolete not only in passenger cars but potentially in all road vehicles, 3D printing will allow the production of novel vehicles but also change the demand for transport by making it possible to replace shipping products by shipping materials and local production, virtual and augmented reality may reduce the need to travel physically, and carbon fibre structures may make the automobile extremely lightweight and efficient. The forum’s ongoing mission has been to detect novel trends in automotive ICT, electronics and smart systems and to discuss the technological implications from early on, and will thus be continued also in this AMAA edition “Smart Systems Transforming the Automobile” to be held on 25-26 September 2017 in Berlin.
