At public industry events, our experts are highly requested speakers. They give insights on our current research projects, discuss innovative use cases and are happy to answer questions about their field of expertise.
Please find further events to meet us here.
"Fail Fast – The Key to Success for Automotive Software?"
"EDAG CityBots – autonomous transport and work vehicle as mobility concept"
"Innovative lightweight construction exhibits from partner projects on partner stands"
"Automated Testing of Vehicle Integrated Environmental Sensors"
Based on the testing of environment sensors for parking assistants, the automated test system named "EDscene" was developed. Automation makes it possible to increase the test frequency and thus reduce the costs per test. At the same time, the quality of the measurements is improved by lower tolerances and higher reproducibility. The user also benefits from automated processing of the measured values to a standard evaluation. The test system can be used in the entire parameter interval of the environmental conditions of the known manufacturer and working group specifications. Development engineer Lukas Birkemeyer explains in his presentation details and further potentials of this technical innovation.
At these events our colleagues have spoken in the past:
A small review of selected fairs and conferences.

"SRD Fusion – a Framework to overcome Challenges in Validation, Testing and Development of ADAS Systems"
Casting-generating: Hybrid components through new manufacturing process chains
Sebastian Flügel presents how you can manufacture several variants with only one die casting mould at the Metall-3D-Druck event hosted by @Süddeutscher Verlag Veranstaltungen GmbH at the GIFA 2019 in Düsseldorf. More information: http://bit.ly/2HL794l
Fiber composites in the vehicle: A lifetime or beyond?
Our Project Manager Lightweight Innovations Stefan Caba impresses the participants of the Symposium on Composites with his presentation of the CO2 footprint over a vehicle's life cycle and explains that reusing large lightweight structures can make a valuable contribution to the environment.

VariKa: A Multi-Variety, Ultra-Light, Metallic Traction Battery Carrier as a Demonstration Example of Networked Product and Production Engineering
Cost, performance and weight play a major role in the development of automotive components. A continuous process chain for the development of functional LAM components and a highly flexible production enable cost-effective manufacturing. How this might work is presented by Jörg Hölig, Head of Competence Center, at the International Automotive Body Congress in Frankfurt. bit.ly/2W8Apeh
Artificial intelligence sees through fog
Artificial intelligence sees through fog – as can our Smofod system. It can eliminate fog, smoke or smog from images in real time, and makes objects that are difficult to make out visible. This is how Smofod lays down a vital corner stone for autonomous driving. Jacek Burger presents Smofod at the "Ecosystem for Highly Automated Driving - EcoSysHAF" in Lindau.

Sensor Raw Data Fusion for Testing Application in Autonomous Driving
Can you see better when it's double? Yes – subject to the correct data fusion: Julius von Falkenhausen presents a framework for raw sensor data fusion - the SRD Fusion Engine - at the ATZlive "Automated Driving" symposium. This can make a decisive contribution to accelerating the development of automated driving.

Casting & Additive Manufacturing: Hybrid components using new production
How can hinge systems significantly improve pedestrian safety and lightweight construction in automotive? Richrad Kordaß presents to 200 representatives of international OEMs at the Automotive Circle Conference, how this can be achieved using additive manufacturing and innovative development methods.

Lightweight construction in urban vehicles
Article on arena talk »lightweight design makes a better car«
"Weight reduction is essential for increasing the range of urban eCars. Consumers will realize this when the eCars currently being developed come onto the market. Digitalisation, autonomous driving and electrification have been given top priority here. Lightweight design will have its renaissance with the second generation," says Dr.-Ing. Martin Hillebrecht at the lightweight design summit.
Article on the talk »Lightweight construction in urban vehicles«
SCALEbase and FibreEUse are two concepts that can be used in the implementation of #lightweight vehicles for urban use. Dr.-Ing. Martin Hillebrecht, Stefan Caba and Michael Schäfer, show how the variable platform concept and the cyclical use of a lightweight #vehicle body work the lightweight design summit held by @Automobil Industrie.
Dr.-Ing. Martin Hillebrecht
New lightweight process chains for the vehicle of tomorrow
Great event: At the Landshut University of Applied Sciences within reach of the BMW Lightweight Construction Centre, our Innovation Manager Dr.-Ing. Martin Hillebrecht presents a current EDAG study on the lightweight construction potential in urban electric vehicles as a contrast to the general mainstream.
Casting + Additive Manufacturing: New production process chains for hybrid components
LightHinge+: Additively manufactured lightweight hood hinge
Experts from science and industry discuss current and future-oriented innovation impulses and trends for the use of new materials in vehicle concepts of the future at the symposium WerkstoffPlus Auto in Stuttgart, Germany. During the conference WerkstoffPlusAuto you discover more innovations in this field at the booth of EDAG.
