Live Event - Safety and Experience in the Age of Future Mobility

23 September 2020
2pm-3:30pm CET

Automated driving is seen as one of the major technological advancements paving new mobility business models.

One of the key challenges is the certification of such smart vehicles and safety by reducing the number of accidents caused by human errors. Safety improvement requires a robust Verification & Validation process which relies on different technologies.

Therefore, simulation becomes one of the most efficient ways to test, validate the safety of vehicle systems and certify the vehicle without delay.

Another driving force for autonomous technology development is comfort by enabling more freedom and fun for drivers and passengers.

ESI and Visual Arena welcome you to an interactive event where we discuss the challenges and benefits of using such technologies.
