13th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA)

Smart Systems for Safety, Sustainability, and Comfort

5 May 2009 - 6 May 2009

With the total number of vehicles steadily increasing and soon approaching one billion, the world is facing serious challenges in terms of road safety and sustainability. Consequently, the foremost issues for the automotive industry are improving safety, reducing emissions, and enhancing energy efficiency.

Smart system technologies and ICT based solutions are considered the key enablers of future mobility. Car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication, driver assistance systems, novel power trains and human-machine interfacing will strongly gain in importance.

The International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) has been an exclusive showroom of R&D activities in this domain for more than a decade. In 2009, its topic will be „Smart Systems for Safety, Sustainability, and Comfort".
