At the 16th international forum of Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) being held in Berlin on 30 and 31 May, 2012 will provide a platform for recent innovations and changing trends in smart systems, ICT, architecture and components, which enable sustainable and safe automobile technologies.
Future road mobility goals that include reduced emissions, better fuel efficiency and zero accidents can be achieved by advanced integration of ICT, architecture, smart systems, propulsion technology and material into transportation systems. The topic of the 2012 AMAA conference “Smart Systems for Safe, Sustainable and Networked Vehicles” emphasizes these goals through discussions, proposals and exhibitions presented by experts from academia and leading industries including automakers, road transport experts and researchers. Latest innovations and technological developments in automobile and road transport and safety will be highlighted.
The topics of discussion at AMAA 2012 will encompass networked vehicles, information and communication technologies, architectures, smart systems and components to include optimized engine performance, closed-loop control and advanced injection of the combustion process, recuperation& hybridization, eco driving, power grid connection, integrated power electronics, bus-based control and communication, thermal management, pedestrian recognition, night vision, stability control, intelligent speed adaptation, dynamic and green routing, automated driving, onboard information, links to data and power infrastructures, sensor fusion, power electronics, virtual sensors, chip architectures, standardization and in-vehicle diagnostics.
The AMAA 2012 forum is being organized by EPoSS and VDI/VDE-IT.
