AutoSens launches in Hong Kong with esteemed industry support
Esteemed industry support, testament to the AutoSens brand and reputation to deliver third annual edition in Asia
Launching AutoSens in Asia from in early 2021, Hong Kong
Following demand from industry stakeholders, organisers Sense Media launch a third event in the AutoSens series, adding capacity for a further 500 engineers to join the world-wide community. Asia is a hugely important market for automotive and autonomous technology, and hence, an essential market for AutoSens as an international hub of senior engineers and technologists.
Arriving in Hong Kong in early 2021, the third iteration to the annual AutoSens calendar will deliver more of the same in-depth technical content addressing vehicle perception and sensing challenges, as well as establishing a local finger on the pulse, to discuss the latest pan-Asian market developments.
“AutoSens is a great go-to place to talk, network, and connect sensors with robotic perception for ADAS and Autonomous Driving. Hosting the event in Hong Kong adds so much excitement by bringing the innovations and speakers around the world, and world’s manufacturing powerhouse to one place.” Wesley Shao, Director, Autonomous Driving, BYTON
Building on the strength of the AutoSens name and leveraging relationships in their community, organisers will gather the leading engineering minds and innovative technologists across Asia to develop this event.
“AutoSens has quickly established itself as the event in this space to see, hear and meet the key companies and people that matter in the autonomous vehicle sector. Launching a 3rd edition in Hong Kong is an exciting and valuable proposition for the industry.” Rudy Burger, Woodside Capital Partners
Extensive market support
More than a year and a half out, the meeting already has a number of highly invested stakeholders.
Expert advisory board members for AutoSens in Hong Kong include representatives from Aptiv, BYTON, Valeo, Visteon and Robert Bosch with founding partners featuring representation from top companies such as IAV Automotive Engineering, Siemens, OmniVision, Kalray, ON Semiconductor, Viavi, Woodside Capital Partners and XenomatiX.

Existing events from AutoSens in Brussels, Belgium and Detroit, Michigan, USA already attract top level sponsors and delegates from Japan, China, Korea and other Asian nations. With exciting developments in the Chinese automotive market of great interest to the rest of the world, and established OEMs and technology companies from Japan and Korea nearby, bringing AutoSens to Hong Kong will enable an even stronger representation from traditional automotive incumbents and technology newcomers in these regions.
There is no shortage of automotive conferences and trade shows in the area, in particular Shanghai and Shenzen in China. However, AutoSens brings a unique blend of high-level learning and technical discussion alongside forward thinking presentations from industry regulators, analysts, investors and academics. By engineers, for engineers – AutoSens prides itself on providing the perfect environment to foster collaborations through a culture of openness, sharing and discussion.
