Leading automotive perception technology conference, AutoSens, doubles up in 2017 due to widespread demand

For those who missed the opportunity to attend in 2016, organisers Sense Media have released two dates and locations for these "best in class" conferences next year. Both venues provide the perfect backdrop for the continuation of technical discussion concerning the future of vehicle perception technology.

After exceeding all expectations and firmly positioning itself as the only event to be at within the vehicle perception space, AutoSens returns in 2017 with two dates for your diaries. The industry-leading meeting will head across the Atlantic to the automotive heartland, Detroit, MI in May 2017 then make a repeat appearance at the spectacular AutoWorld museum in Brussels during mid-September.

"Very rewarding experience. It attracted the attention of the vast majority of companies and experts working in the automotive field. A lot of opportunities for networking." Petros Kapsalas, Panasonic Automotive

A brand new, unique venue in Detroit, MI attracting a lot of positive local attention. The venue incorporates a 1.5-mile racetrack, showrooms and event facilities, providing the perfect spot for AutoSens's mix of conference learning and trackside experiences.

The event makes a welcome return to AutoWorld in September 2017 - a remarkable and inspiring venue for anyone with a passion for cars. With the newly launched AutoSens Awards, added venue features and enhanced networking, even previous attendees will have a multitude of new experiences at AutoSens in 2017.

"Great place, excellent speakers and topics covered, organization team attentive and friendly!" Roberto De Souza, CardioID Technologies

Robert Stead, Conference Director at AutoSens delves into just a few of the enhancements for 2017 "Building on the foundations of the inaugural Brussels event, 2017 will bring exciting developments for the AutoSens conference series, including growing the international AutoSens community, live vehicle demonstrations, increased integration with education and academic programmes and a celebration of achievements at the brand new AutoSens Awards.

He continues, "Staying true to the founding principles of meeting the needs of the engineering community, creating an open platform for discussion, and creating a best in class meeting experience, the AutoSens team looks forward to delivering even more in 2017."

Why AutoSens?

AutoSens connects technologists in all disciplines of vehicle perception to network, collaborate, solve shared challenges and advance ADAS technologies more rapidly. The event brings together 330+ engineers from several engineering disciplines including cameras, LiDAR, radar, image processing, computer vision, in-car networking, testing and validation, certification and standards.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
