PraxisConference Autonomous Emergency Braking and Steering 

Consumer protection organizations constantly increase their requirements on emergency brake assistants for passenger cars: Test cases with visual obstruction and higher expected speed reductions are the prerequisites
for a 5-star rating in Euro NCAP or a Top Safety Pick+ of the IIHS.

As next step, legal working groups prepare the introduction of AEB systems for passenger cars. Heavy commercial vehicles and buses are already further ahead: since 2015 they have had to be equipped with emergency brake assist systems as standard. To further reduce the number of accidents, the requirements defined in UN R131 were tightened in 2016 and the scope was extended to vehicle classes N2 (≤ 8 t) and M2. Intensive work is currently being carried out on a planned tightening of the requirements of UN R131.

The PraxisConference AEB|AES brings you together with the experts on the topic. Proven and new technologies for testing and releasing automated emergency functions are used live. Prepared for you:

  • The presentation of current and future requirements on emergency braking, evasion and highly automated driving functions, as well as development strategies that lead to a robust system.
  • Direct dialogues with the boundary condition's designers for the development of automated emergency braking and evasion functions: Legislative representatives, consumer protection organizations, OEM departments and suppliers of simulation and testing technologies.
  • Practical experience with various test setups, targets, driving robots and control software at the stations of the DemoDay.
