Why should you attend this conference?


Europe’s BIGGEST ADAS event took place in September 2017

As ADAS improves at a rapid rate and autonomous vehicles edge closer to mainstream production, it is more important than ever for engineers to raise their heads and participate in industry-wide knowledge sharing and discussion. AutoSens 2017 in Brussels enjoyed incredible support from senior engineers at OEM and Tier 1 companies. It was Europe’s biggest ADAS event with over 450 engineers and technical experts at AutoWorld in Belgium. The community extended to business leaders from the full supply chain as well as leading academics, and technical experts in the various component fields. Earlier in 2017 we also flew across the Atlantic and create a truly global meeting place.
