chassis.tech plus 2016
7th International Munich Chassis Symposium



  14. June 2016 - 15. June 2016 / Munich, Germany

Conference fee:
EUR 1395,00 plus VAT
EUR 1660,05 incl VAT

 In chassis development, the three aspects of safety, vehicle dynamics and ride comfort are at the top of the list of challenges to be faced. Addressing this triad of challenges becomes even more complex when the chassis is required to interact with assistance systems and other systems for fully automated driving. What is more, new demands are created by the introduction of modern electric and electronic architectures. All these requirements must be met by the chassis, together with its subsystems, the steering, brakes, tires and wheels. At the same time, all physical relationships and interactions have to be taken into account.

The 7th International Munich Chassis Symposium chassis.tech plus on 14 and 15 June 2016 brings together numerous experts for an exchange of ideas and experience and constructive discussions. Renowned keynote speakers will give a comprehensive overview of challenges and solutions in chassis technology. In the well-established manner, speakers from industry and research will address the latest developments in four parallel strands focusing on the chassis, steering, brakes and tires/wheels. The program of lectures is rounded off by plenary sessions at the beginning and end of the symposium.

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.

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 six hundred 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 is unsurpassed and 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.
