The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas in January proved once again that car-to-X communication and the integration of smartphones and tablets into vehicles are advancing at a rapid pace and will significantly change our future mobility. With its international trade fair ConCarExpo on 29 and 30 June 2016 in Duesseldorf, the Association of German Engineers (VDI) is providing a new business platform for both well-established companies and newcomers to the industry.

A high-level conference programme and a trade fair forum with more than 100 wide-ranging lectures and special car presentations offer many opportunities for acquiring the very latest knowledge, establishing contacts and networking.

The conference programme includes four separate, international conferences with high-profile speakers:

•    At the International VDI Conference on Automated Driving, experts from OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers will report on the very latest technical possibilities in the field of driver assistance systems and sensors, as well as on the legal aspects of autonomous driving.    

•    The International VDI Conference on HMI & Connectivity addresses issues relating to human-machine interfaces. It will discuss topics such as Augmented Reality, voice control, design options, driver distraction and legislation in the field of HMI and connectivity.

•    The International VDI Conference on IT Security for Vehicles deals with the many and varied requirements that connected vehicles have to meet. Experts from the automotive and IT industries will report on topics such as protection against external attacks, encryption, data protection, data management and software update possibilities.

•    The International VDI Conference on Safety Systems is targeted at automotive experts from the fields of integral and passive safety systems, and focuses on the impact of automated driving on vehicle safety. Topics discussed at the conference include accident avoidance concepts, cooperative safety and the protection of vulnerable road users.   

VDI as a neutral event organiser with an extensive network of experts in automotive technology is supported by highly regarded industry associations such as the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), BITKOM, ITS Deutschland and CVTA Connected Vehicle Trade Association from the USA. As part of this alliance, ConCarExpo is therefore the ideal meeting place for all those who want to know more about the connected car and play a key role in helping to shape its future.

ConCarExpo will bring together specialists in automated driving and driver assistance systems, electronic components, software, infrastructure technologies, navigation, telematics, HMI and diagnosis, as well as mobility and development services and projects and initiatives for the traffic of tomorrow. Exhibitors will therefore address the customer groups relevant to you in a targeted manner without any coverage waste.
