AMAA 2015: 19th International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications "Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving"

amaa 2015 SQUARE


Kaiserin-Friedrich House, Berlin, Germany

The automobile of the future will have to respond to two major trends, the electrification of the drivetrain, and the automation of the transportation system. These trends will not only lead to a greener and safer driving but redefine the concept of the car completely, particularly if they interact with each other in a synergetic way as for autonomous parking and charging, self-driving shuttles or mobile robots. The 19th Int. Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA 2015) “Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving” to be held on 7-8 July 2015 in Berlin will approach these topics from a conceptual and technical perspective.

Keynote Speakers:

Stefan Mengel
Head of Unit Electronic Systems and Electric Mobility
Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany

Willy van Puymbroeck
Head of Unit Components
DG CNECT, European Commission, Belgium
