Press Release
Announcement: The Vehicle Motion Control and Drive-by-Wire Conference is postponed
[Berlin, 12 March 2020] Due to the risk associated with the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided not to hold the Vehicle Motion Control and Drive-by-Wire Conference planned in Germany on the 12-14 May 2020.

Instead, the conference will be postponed and is currently being scheduled to take place on the 20 - 22 April 2021 in Berlin, Germany.

We very much regret that we will not be able to come together in May for this industry meeting, but the health and safety of our participants and our team remains our highest priority.

We are currently working closely with our partners and clients to ensure the successful and safe reorganization of the Vehicle Motion Control and Drive-by-Wire Conference.

International Conference Vehicle Motion Control
 and X-by-Wire

Advanced integrated vehicle motion control strategies and x-by-wire systems for improved safety, performance and fuel economy in the age of highly automated vehicles

With the rising demands in vehicle safety, performance, comfort and not to forget, fuel economy, a new approach to vehicle motion control is needed. Where as in the past, all the systems of the chassis were controlled by separate ECUs, compnies in the automotive domain are now working towards combining these systems and creating a global, vehicle level, control architecture. This of course, brings new challenges to the table, not only of technical nature, but also of organizational and even "political" one. Looking at furthering the efficienty of modern vehicles, x-by-wire systems play a special role. The prospect of not having heavy, spacious mechanical components, but instead electronic commands to actuators control the vehicle motion, is a good one and a lot of R&D activities are directed towards introducing cost efficienty and reliable by-wire systems into the car. In this conference you will learn from top experts from OEMs and Tier1s and their suppliers, how too tackle the challenges associated with introducing these new technlogies. You will:

  • Learn how to deal with the complexity of a global control system on a technical level
  • Find out what the new architectures should be that incorporate autonomous driving and how to change company organization to adjust to the new realms
  • Discuss new possibilities for standardization of software and interfaces and minimizing costs, risks and validation time
  • Discover how to gain customer acceptance of new drive-by-wire systems
  • Listen to experts in functional safety and model based development on how to ensure safety of complex systems
  • See what developments are made in redundant systems in electrified vehicles
