May 11, 2023  Interview with Prof. Klaus Kompaß 

We are excited to present the first excerpt of our interview with
Prof. Klaus Kompaß
. In it, he highlights the presentation by Frank Schmitz
of REWE Digital GmbH

In his presentation, Frank Schmitz will address the wishes and requirements of the retail industry of the future for autonomous vehicles. It will become clear that autonomous driving is a game changer for all stationary retailers. Frank Schmitz will also address the fact that SAE Level 5 is not required for retailers. Nevertheless, it remains to be seen whether the first products suitable for a roll-out will be launched on the market as early as 2024.

May 11, 2023  Child Presence Detection Workshop 

As part of SafetyWeek, Messring will host a workshop on Euro NCAP's new CPD assessment. In the workshop, the requirements of Euro NCAP will be presented and discussed. In addition, Messring experts will demonstrate the calibration of the CPD dummy.

Safety has never been more important than today.

Reliable since 2003

The SafetyWeek is the international meeting point for automotive safety experts and will be taking place for the 21st time in 2023. Three individual conferences on requirements, testing and the future of safe mobility are accompanied by the renowned SafetyExpo that features the leaders in safety innovation and technology.

On site & online

We are convinced that exchange and networking can only really work with a face-to-face event. But we also take into account the current conditions by digitizing everything that makes sense.

Up to date and top-class

As always, the conference is highly up-to-date and will feature top experts. This way the participants get the answers to the questions that concern them in their daily work. Of course, the changes in society and industry to the requirements of vehicle safety and the further development of automated driving will also be discussed and addressed.
