9:30 AM The Evolution of Active Suspension Design to Enable Autonomous Vehicle Realization

This presentation will elaborate on the role that advanced active suspension systems (including
artificial intelligence) will play in the successful launch of autonomous vehicles.
• Design changes
• Application for new passenger experience
• Future challenges

11:10 AM Panel discussion | Control of active and semi-active suspension systems

The demand for advanced suspension technology has increased as there is promise for more
cost effective solutions. Semi –active suspensions are fully developed and widely accepted at
present. New advanced technologies are arising and premium car OEMs are coming out with
new features. In this panel the experts will discuss this trend and focus on such questions as:
• What are the real drivers of these technologies?
• Is there a real need for advanced systems such as 3-chamber air suspension or active
anti-roll bars?
• Discussing market trends, end-user expectations and future demand
• Who will have the system responsibility in the future, the OEM or the Tier 1 supplier?
