Bringing together the world’s leading engineers in the field of autonomous vehicle research, testing, validation and development

The 2020 conference will be held in Novi, Michigan, alongside Automotive Testing Expo, North America’s largest exhibition dedicated to new vehicle development and testing, and Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo, which will showcase the latest test and next-generation enabling technologies specifically developed for AVs.

The conference will see more than 50 expert speakers discuss the latest developments in the world of next-generation ADAS technology, autonomous vehicles, and self-driving vehicle technology test and validation.

Since the final meeting of the Eureka PROMETHEUS Project in Paris in 1994, it’s been clear that fully autonomous self-driving vehicles are set to become a reality, yet some 25 years later, the final stages of testing, validation and failsafing still pose a huge challenge for the automotive industry.

Taking place alongside these two great AV conferences!

The Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium is the MUST-attend conference for anyone working on research and development of AV technology.

Over the course of the three days, the conference will address a number of key unresolved issues such as:

  • Public road testing
  • Virtual testing
  • Simulation
  • Traffic scenario testing
  • Embedded software testing
  • Reliability testing of software and hardware systems
  • Safety and crash testing
  • Failsafe testing
  • Cyber threat testing
  • Validation and verification
  • Autonomy software
  • VeHIL
  • V2V and V2X testing
  • Robotics
  • Testing legislation
  • Safety standards and legislation
  • Human factors and HMI testing
  • Case studies
  • Possibilities
  • Best practices
