electronica automotive conference “electronics meets automotive” will begin in the Munich International Congress Center one day before the start of the trade fair. During this conference, top managers from the international automobile, automotive component supply and electronics industries will present technologies, solution approaches and strategies with which the industry is intending to tackle the challenges in coming years.
The electronica automotive conference will take place on November 8 and 9, 2010. Its program will include questions relating to markets, strategies and technologies for automobile electronics. Around 20 per cent of exhibitors will present solutions for automobile electronics in the exhibition halls. On all four days of the trade fair, the Automotive Forum in Hall A6 will feature talks and podium discussions on topics such as power supply or key components in electro-mobility. With these three pillars, electronica will provide an all-round platform for automobile electronics. You can find the program of the electronica automotive conference in the Internet at www.electronica.de/eac. The conference language is English.
The first day of the conference is aimed, in particular, at top managers from automobile manufacturers, automotive component suppliers and electronics companies. The program will include talks by Brad Maggart, President of Delphi Japan and Sales Director Delphi Electronics & Safety Asia, on the topic of “Challenges and Opportunities in the Electrification of the China Auto Market“ or by Peter Bauer, CEO, Infineon Technologies, who will speak about “Semiconductors as Innovation Engine for Energy Efficient and Safe Mobility“.
Other talks from the program of the first conference day will examine, for example, questions relating to lithium-ion batteries (SB LiMotive) or system architectures for cognitive safety functions (TRW Automotive).
The second day of the conference will feature two parallel sessions. It will focus on technologies and will be aimed at technical managers from automobile manufacturers, automotive component suppliers and electronics companies.
The first session will deal exclusively with electro-mobility. The program will include presentations by Brose Fahrzeugteile entitled “Energy-Efficient Electromechanical Systems Used in Automotive Applications”, or “Global Standard Charging interface for electric Vehicles“ by Volkswagen.
The second session will examine communication, driver assistance and lighting. Trade visitors can look forward to talks by BMW on ”IP & Ethernet as Potential Mainstream Automotive Technologies“, by NXP Semiconductor on ”Driving Innovation in a Green Automotive Industry“ and by Hella on ”Lighting Based Driver Assistance Systems as an Enabler for Future Safety Functions“.
