Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) – Expert conference at Ingolstadt Technical University
In order to meet future requirements in the car and commercial vehicle industry, a slew of experts (OEMs, suppliers to the automotive industry, test equipment suppliers and consumer protection and legislative representatives) convened on September 28-29, 2017, including EDAG and BFFT. Consumer protection organizations have long incorporated AEB systems into their assessment criteria and will significantly increase the systems’ weighting in vehicle assessment in coming years. The expert conference was held at Ingolstadt Technical University, as well as at the CARISSMA Research and Test Center. Opened in June 2016, CARISSMA is home to ten state-of-the-art test facilities, including an indoor test facility and an outdoor test facility for integral vehicle safety systems, a drop tower, a Car2X laboratory, a battery laboratory, a simulation laboratory, an HiL laboratory, and a pedestrian protection laboratory for the development of new test and sensing methods, and a driving simulator with a hexapod motion platform.
The university auditorium featured representatives of companies who, among others, are researching the development of AEB systems. The experts from EDAG and BFFT showcased their expertise and developments in the area of Autonomous Emergency Braking and visually simulated their systems on a screen.
In addition to speeches by various experts from the automotive industry, the conference also offered numerous open-air driving demonstrations at CARISSMA.
