Smart Systems for Green Cars and Safe Mobility

The AMAA is the number one conference dedicated to novel ICT components and smart systems enabling green cars and safe road transport. In 2010 its focus is on electrified vehicles, road and passenger safety, driver assistance, traffic management, and power train efficiency.

This event is a preferred occasion for senior engineers and managers from vehicle manufacturers, automotive suppliers and semiconductor industry to meet with researchers from world-class academic institutions for a discussion about the key technologies for the automobile of the future. In 2010, the building of consortia for research projects, particularly for the European Green Cars Initiative, will be stimulated through a particular networking session.

The opening of the AMAA 2010 includes keynotes by the German Federal Government, the European Commission and Renault dealing with the public authorities’ and industry’s plans for Green Cars and Safe Mobility. A particular focus will be on the electric vehicle. More than 50 talks and posters have been announced by e.g. Bosch, Continental, Fiat Research Center, Freescale, Daimler, Hella Aglaia, Infineon, Melexis, e2v, Audi, PTV, SAP, Volvo, Volkswagen and other companies as well as by various universities.
