The UpDate Concept: Brings you quickly up-to-date

The concept is familiar: To keep software up-to-date you regularly make an update. The same is true for automotive safety engineering: To keep yourself up-to-date you have to attend the SafetyUpDate on a regular basis. Here you get a comprehensive overview of all relevant news in automotive safety.

New: Active + Passive Safety = SafetyUpdate +active

The SafetyUpDate reflects the close integration of active and passive safety and combines both topics in one event. The SafetyUpDate addresses general topics such as the NCAP consumer tests as well as specific topics such as testing or simulation methods of active or passive safety systems.

From Experts for Experts

The speakers are leading experts from government agencies, consumer protection organizations, industry and universities. We consider it important that the UpDate presentations are product-neutral and practical.

Meeting Point: Expert Dialog

In addition to the presentations the SafetyUpDate encourages the communication among experts. After the 
presentations the speakers are available for discussions 
at the MeetingPoint.
