4th International ATZ Conference on Automated Driving

Driver Assistance Systems 2018

Advanced driver assistance systems enable vehicles to see, think, and act. The basic precondition for the introduction of highly automated driving is interoperability. Equally important are “over-theair” updates that allow the necessary swarm intelligence to be used. Numerous discussions are currently concentrating on the demarcation between Level 3 and 4 and above all on the question of which nondriving-related activities may be performed by drivers when automated mode is activated and how they perform them. If these take place on the screen of the instrument cluster, it is easier to gain the driver's attention by changing or switching off the display, thus instructing him or her to reassume control of the vehicle. Mobile smart devices require a different strategy. Other aspects are the driver (human) in interaction with the vehicle (machine) and the interdependencies related to these.There are two papers on this subject, which focus not only on HMI.

The 4th International ATZ Conference “Driver Assistance Systems – From Assistance to Automated Driving” has strands of lectures on both technology and insurance issues, thus providing an up-to-date contextualization of the latest developments. Redundancies that are necessary for safety reasons and a reduction in driver handover times require new E/E architectures and onboard power networks. Environment recognition systems must be improved even further. What is more, new methods such as “Deep Machine Learning” present important challenges. In a panel discussion, high-ranking industry representatives will discuss the topic of “Automated Driving – Technical Developments in the Challenging Context of Politics, Law, and, Ethics”.

Information of our Cooperationpartner


The ATZ conference “Driver Assistance Systems – From assistance to automated 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.
