5th International ATZ Conference

Automated Driving 2019

Thanks to the rapid development of driver assistance systems, the digital world and mechanical automobiles are increasingly merging into one. Further, steps toward partially and fully automated driving for all types of transportation are consistently being taken, with the ultimate goal being to someday achieve a "zero accident rate". Given the dynamic developments in this area, manufacturers have to constantly stay on the ball. Combining presentations and in-depth discussions, the international ATZ Conference "Automated Driving – From Driver Assistance to Autonomous Driving"(formally "Driver Assistence Systems") offers you the ideal platform.

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning are key enablers of automated driving. Interaction between artificial and human intelligence and the ability of humans and machines to cooperate must be designed on new levels of interaction and made usable for future mobility. To achieve this, it is necessary for society to accept this development. Against this background, methods, tools, and processes become just as relevant as sensors and connectivity.

The insurance sector has also discovered automated driving as an important business field, and some companies already have their own fully automated vehicles on the road as pilots. But they also want to have a say in the question of who owns the data in the vehicle.

The international ATZ Conference “Automated Driving – From Driver Assistance to Autonomous Driving” is an annual trend barometer of the successes and the necessary adaptations from a technical, legal, and social perspective. Now in its fifth year, the conference will not only examine the latest technical topics, but will also offer parallel sessions on insurance issues, thus also giving specialists in this sector once again the opportunity to acquire comprehensive information. It therefore offers engineers, decision-makers, and insurance experts the optimal platform for a mutual exchange of ideas and knowledge.
