 We are now in an age of automotive connectivity, with invehicle internet and car-to-x communication. And in the chassis too, connectivity is increasingly becoming a pacemaker for innovation. Predictive and intelligent chassis systems and automated driving are just some of the keywords in this context. In addition to providing more ride comfort and safety, the interconnection of powertrain and chassis systems also offers new functions – not only in cars but also in commercial vehicles. In addition, innovations in chassis systems are also being driven by modularization, the electrification of the powertrain, intelligent development methods and efforts to reduce fuel consumption.

One for All – Four Congresses in One Event

The International Munich Chassis Symposium is the key international meeting place for the chassis community in the fields of the chassis, steering, brakes and wheels/tires.

The 1st day will be taken up by the interdisciplinary section chassis.tech plus with two parallel strands of lectures in the afternoon. The symposium will focus on overriding issues relating to chassis systems and vehicle dynamics, before dividing up

on the 2nd day into the following four parallel sections concentrating on the chassis, steering, brakes and wheels/tires:
  • chassis.tech
  • steering.tech
  • brake.tech
  • tire.tech

In the afternoon, the parallel sections will merge together again for the interdisciplinary section chassis.tech plus. Participants can move freely between the four parallel sections at any time. The individual parallel sections scheduled for the second day – chassis.tech, steering.tech, brake.tech, tire.tech – can be booked separately at a reduced registration fee.

For the whole duration of the event, the accompanying trade exhibition will allow you to gather information on innovative products and services offered in the field of chassis development.

  • Manufacturers of passenger cars and commercial vehicles and their suppliers
  • Development service providers
  • Universities and research institutes
  • Manufacturers of measuring, testing and simulation systems
  • Authorities, associations and testing institutes

For more than 30 years Anthony Best Dynamics (ABD) provide leading technology such as K&C test stands, driving robots, path following systems, driverless test systems and herewith synchronizable autonomous soft crash targets. Even a mixed operation of the vehicles and external actuators became a reality in the meantime. Almost five hundered ABD systems are in operation worldwide from a single driving robot up to systems for the driverless operation of multiple vehicles as well as pedestrian and soft targets . The quality and robustness of ABDs systems proves by the fact that ABDs first robot systems are still in use.
A wide product range of fast and non-destructive installable actuators meet the demands for most different applications such as driving dynamic tests, autonomous misuse or rough road testing, EuroNCAP AEB test, evaluation of ADAS systems, durability tests, parking and crash tests, truck homologation and stationary applications on test stands and much more. Even when every needed robot has been installed in the vehicle, a human can still drive the vehicle normally. Every ABD system uses the same intuitive multilingual and touchscreen enabled software interface which reduces the training effort substantially.

Bertrandt's services for the international automotive industry cover the entire value chain of product development: from the initial idea and the development and validation of components, modules and systems right through to complete vehicles, with supporting services such as quality, supplier and project management. The group-wide networking of expertise and the consistent further development of knowledge secure the company's status as one of the leading partners in the market for development services at 46 locations worldwide.
At chassis.tech 2015, Bertrandt is presenting a mobile driving simulator with a real-time system. The simulator can represent any driving situation, vehicle or route without the need for a drivable vehicle to exist. As a result, it can reduce development time and cut the number of costly and time-consuming test drives required. What is more, the system can integrate vehicle dynamics control systems and driver assistance systems into the real-time simulation environment. Changes in the vehicle's handling therefore become directly perceivable.
