DLR Symposium “Testing of Autonomous and Connected Vehicles”

4. September 2018

Public | €99,00

The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) Institute of Transportation Systems will hold the first symposium ‘Testing of Autonomous and Connected Vehicles’ on 4 September 2018. This year, one focus area will be on locations that enable the trialling of autonomous and connected vehicles in a variety of test environments on real roads.

Experts from industry and science will gather at the DLR site in Braunschweig to report on current and trend-setting developments in the areas of test sites and testing. During a Talent Session, doctoral candidates will also address aspects of fundamental research in the field of testing. Another highlight will be the opportunity to take part in a bus tour to the test junction in Braunschweig to inspect DLR installation in the field. Participants can also enjoy a social event, where they will be able to discuss the insights acquired over the course of the day in more detail.

We are extending a warm invitation to those interested in attending the symposium. Spread over two days, the event is designed to strengthen networks in this topical field and to encourage discussion between experts.
