Why should you attend this conference?


By engineers, for engineers

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.

Engineers can ‘take the gloves off’ for three days, and just be engineers and scientists working on shared challenges and pursuing high quality technical work. We strive to bring a really high quality of technical presentations to AutoSens every year, so all attendees will go back to their office or lab with some new solutions, food for thought, or novel information.

AutoSens receives incredible support from senior engineers at OEM and Tier 1 companies. 2018 saw Europe’s biggest ADAS event with over 550 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. May 2019 see’s the event flying across the Atlantic to create a truly global meeting place and 2020 take’s us on a journey into Asia.
