1st Driving Simulators Symposium draws the community to Stuttgart

July 14, 2015
At the 1st Driving Simulators Symposium on 7 July, the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart asc(s, the Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) Fellbach and the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin presented their joint driving simulation competence atlas.

This atlas takes stock and also deals with current developments and future areas of use. Information exchange and discussions on chances and challenges occupied center stage at the symposium in Stuttgart.
The symposium was organized to provide an impetus for future R&D projects by targeted network building between OEMs, suppliers, technology providers and research institutes. The organizers regard the fully booked event with more than 40 participants as a complete success and emphasize: “With the Driving Simulators Symposium we are providing the community with a forum for technical communication, as the exchange of knowledge and know-how is essential in this particular field. We are very happy that this offer was so well received.” Automobile manufacturers, such as Audi, BMW, Daimler, Mazda, Porsche and Volkswagen were present, as were suppliers and research institutes. The programme included lectures on testing and validation, on sharing of spatial data in the context of driving simulation, and the presentation of the competence atlas. In the World Café the participants worked out the chances, drivers and obstacles to driving simulations. Another highlight consisted in the visit of the driving simulator at the FKFS.
