Automotive Ethernet Symposium

Since 2014, Vector's Automtotive Ethernet Symposium has established itself as an industry meeting for experts from vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and research. In numerous presentations, the speakers explain current projects and present new solutions.

The exhibition area offers the opportunity to network and exchange ideas with each other and with Vector's specialists. Also, Vector will present its latest developments, tools and solutions for Automotive Ethernet.

Looking Forward

5th Automotive Ethernet Symposium 2021

Save the Date!

The next Automotive Ethernet Symposium will take place in June 2021 on Tuesday 15th and Thursday 17th in a virtual space.

Also this year we would like to resume the exchange among OEMs, suppliers, subcontractors and research professionals as well as Vector experts. Look forward to an exciting and insightful Automotive Ethernet Symposium.

Expect lectures, live chats and Q&As, knowledge transfer, training classes, know-how exchange, and networking. The agenda will reflect megatrends and topics that move the industry. More details and registration coming soon.

Looking Back

Health and Safety First in 2020

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, the Automotive Ethernet Symposium 2020 unfortunately did not take place.

Nevertheless, we were able to present an interesting lecture at the 1st Vector Virtual Week on the topic of Automotive Ethernet: From Lone Fighter to Team Player: When the Strengths of the New Vector Ethernet Interfaces Multiply.
