May 23 – 25, 2023 | Würzburg, Germany


May 11, 2022  Interview with Ola Boström, Veoneer 

Ola Boström, Vice President Government & Regulatory Affairs from
Veoneer talked to Maren Finck about the future of vehicle safety:
It’s all about collaboration! The driver collaborates with the vehicle, the vehicle with other vehicles and with the infrastructure. To improve these types of collaboration, it is important to understand what leads to drivers embracing their ADAS systems instead of switching them off. They discussed the potential of driver/ in cabin monitoring  and personalization of ADAS function features for the interaction between car and driver during confusing traffic situations and designed some visions for the next 20 years of vehicle safety. 

May 02, 2022  HEAT Shuttle at SafetyWeek 

This year, you can see a special exhibit at SafetyExpo: The autonomous
HEAT (Hamburg Electric Autonomous Transportation) Shuttle is on
display at IAV's booth. The HEAT is the first time an autonomous shuttle has been on the road under real traffic conditions with passengers on board in the middle of a German metropolis - and can be experienced by a wide audience. The test drives on public roads provide the necessary insights to ensure safe, connected and autonomous travel at all times. Here you can get to know the HEAT Shuttle in a video: → to the video

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.
