7th International ATZ Conference | Virtual Event

Automated Driving 2021

Due to the current situation, we are organising the Automated Driving this year purely virtually for your safety. Our event app with live streams for all sessions, video networking features and an exhibition space will continue to offer you the industry-wide exchange of experience with up-to-date knowledge transfer.

On the one hand, autonomous driving serves the goal of avoiding accidents in the future, and on the other hand, robot cars are the basis for OEMs' data-driven business models. Depending on the SAE level, the human being changes from driver to passenger. AI processes help to develop self-propelled cars that satisfy every safety concept. Industry experts appreciate the International ATZ Conference "Automated Driving – from Assisted to Autonomous Driving", as it offers not only expert lectures but also the opportunity to visit an exhibition and have discussions with experts in the networking area.

Artificial intelligence and machine learning to continuouslyimprove the  control of traffic situations will remain excitingchallenges for the implementation  of automated driving and the path towards SAE levels beyond 2+. Perhaps the key is that, by iteratively adding  more and more “+” to the 2, we will reach Level 3 one day without the users even noticing. From this perspective, evolution instead of revolution would have a double meaning: realistic development objectives and at the same time a user experience in the sense of a real driving experience.

As an annual trend barometer, the 7th International ATZ Conference “Automated Driving” takes up this theme. In addition to aspects relating to the further development of the current state of technology, we will include interesting new developments in the program to raise the topic to a new level. Only in this way can we create the constructive dialogue that makes our conference better every year and gives the industry the right impetus.

Knowledge transfer from science to economy

3 minutes each – 3 slides – 3 questions


The ATZ conference “Automated Driving  – From Assisted to Autonomous Driving" is aimed at engineers and managers as well as experts involved in developing driver assistance systems and those who cooperate with these developers in the interdisciplinary field of vehicle-to-x technology. In addition to automotive engineers, the target group also includes function developers, software and IT engineers from industry, application-related research and teaching as well as experts working in fields relating to the social, economic, and legal background conditions.
