Elektrobit (EB) a Finalist at TU-Automotive Awards 2015
Detroit, MI

The prestigious TU-Automotive Awards celebrates achievement across the globe in the connected-car industry, and EB is proud to have earned not just one, but two nominations. We’ll vie against some of the world’s best-known automotive companies for the Best Connected Car System Integrator and Best Safety or ADAS Solution awards. See a list of all finalists here.

Featured in ATZ elektronik Magazine

A car’s horizon is restricted to its direct environment, which is far too limited for future autonomous-driving driver-assistance systems. Additional details about geography, topology, weather, and road conditions, among other data, are necessary—a problem solved by combining real-time infrastructure information with digital map data from vehicles.

Get a deeper understanding of this topic by reading the ATZ elektronik article “The Car as a Sensor – Cooperative Perception and Learning for Automated Driving” (English or German).

The WEpods Pilot Project

The Dutch province of Gelderland has launched a pilot program featuring two self-driving vehicles called WEpods. The WEpods, which lack steering wheels and pedals, will initially shuttle visitors between a local rail hub and the Wageningen University & Research Centre. The pilot not only strives to deliver a reliable, ready-to-use system, but also forges a partnership between companies, governments, and knowledge institutions to develop, expand, and ultimately integrate automated vehicles with conventional traffic on public roads. EB is excited to be the supplier of electronic horizon components for the revolutionary WEpods.

MDS Technology Seminar, Seoul, South Korea

May 20

The human-machine interface (HMI) in a vehicle must balance driver support against driver distraction, so interaction between driver and vehicle must be as intuitive as possible. Multimodal HMIs combining voice and gesture with touch and other tactile controls make this possible. Natural language understanding, cloud-based speech recognition, and hybrid systems are state-of-the-art technologies which will further improve the usability of user interfaces.

True to the seminar’s theme—Innovation in cars! Innovation in SW development! Matthias Hampel, Head of Technology and Innovation HMI, will discuss all this and more in “Challenges in Developing a Smart Multimodal Driver Vehicle Interaction,” on May 20.

TU-Automotive Panel hosted by Elektrobit (EB), Novi, MI

June 3

Join EB at the TU-Automotive Conference in Novi, Michigan on Wednesday, June 3 at 5:30 p.m. for "Building the Blueprint for Tomorrow’s Vehicle Software" panel. The advent of the autonomous car and impact of rapid electronics integration are making big demands on software specification, architecture and development - demands they were never designed to fulfill. Today’s vehicle software architecture has never felt more inadequate to deliver tomorrow’s cars.
