We like to give special offers to our readers who attend trade shows. When we are asked to be media partners for events the first thing we ask for is a discount for our readers. A new event our readers might attend is AutoSens, which is called the the most forward-thinking ADAS technology conference, this year takes to the stage in Detroit, Michigan May 22-25. There is a 15% discount for Auto Connected Car News readers – book before March 17 to save $100.

The event in Detroit is expected to attract over three hundred and fifty technical experts and engineers, attending from disciplines including cameras, LiDAR, radar, image processing, computer vision, in-car networking, testing and validation, certification and standards. With workshops, vehicle demonstrations, conference sessions and exhibition; the event provides the perfect environment to foster collaboration through a culture of openness, sharing and discussion.

The most important things to remember is that the Early Bird registration will close on March 17 before AutoSens arrives at the new M1 Concourse venue in Detroit and there is a 15% discount for Auto Connected Car News readers :

Conference Program Overview
• Monday May 22 – Collaborative track testing day – open to participants
• Tuesday May 23 – Autonomous Vehicle Demonstrations and six technical 3-hour Workshops
• Wednesday May 24 – Conference Day 1 and Evening Reception at Henry Ford Museum
• Thursday May 25 – Conference Day 2

The AutoSens agenda looks at the challenges facing vision system engineers. The conference is geared to give insight, generate discussions and propose solutions for shared challenges in ADAS and semi-autonomous vehicle technologies. There is a range of workshops, demonstration sessions, high level presentations and panel discussion for engineers and research managers working on vehicle perception.

Although long-term plan is to bring fully autonomous vehicles to the masses, the AutoSens Advisory Board have been assembled to ensure that these meeting agendas are relevant to the hardware and software engineering challenges faced by OEM, Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies.

AutoSens speakers represent the leading minds in the field of vehicle perception. Experts in robotics, computer vision, automotive electronics, digital imaging, functional safety and more, all have been invited specifically because of their vast experience, recent projects, and ability to shape the future of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technology.
