Automated vehicles are the prominent subject of current public debate: Fierce competition unfolds between companies and states regarding the market introduction of driving automation while first incidents document the inability of current technology to master complex situations. The International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) has been exploring the technological foundations of connected, automated and electrified vehicles for many years.
The current edition, taking place on 22 and 23 September in Brussels, will again embrace key challenges regarding the development of the automobile of the future: How can we validate automated vehicles? How is secure communication between vehicles possible? What is an efficient electric powertrain? How can we facilitate cross-sectorial cooperation in order to roll-out driving automation? Which synergies are feasible between electrified and automated driving?
The 20. International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2016) has the motto “Smart Systems for the Automobile of the Future”, and will again tackle the imminent reshaping of the automobile and its ecosystem imposed by connectivity, automation and electrification.
The conference programme comprises several keynote lectures on each of these subtopics, a round table discussion on the necessity of cross-sectorial cooperation and innovation for an efficient proliferation of automated and connected driving, as well as an invited session on urban light electric vehicles as platforms for novel mobility services for smart cities.
The programme also features more than 20 scientific talks and posters on automated driving functions, automotive sensors, connectivity, navigation and electrified powertrains.
“The interplay of electrification, connectivity and automation yields important synergies that will define the automobile of the future” says Dr. Gereon Meyer, chairman of AMAA 2016.
AMAA 2016 is jointly organized by VDI/VDE Innovation + Technik GmbH and the European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration (EPoSS). It will take place at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union in Brussels.
As a programme managing body for public R&D funding as well as a consultant to the industry, VDI/VDE-IT has been concerned with automotive key technologies for many years. The company analyses and assesses international markets and technology developments and provides advice to policymakers and the economy, e.g. by compiling technology roadmaps.

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.
Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.
The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...
At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.
At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...
There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?
At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
