Review 2017

A Short Review and a Big Thank You!

On November 7th and 8th over 300 participants from customers from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico experienced two days of inspiring presentations and hands-on sessions from leading experts of the industry at this year’s Vector Congress North America. The 2-day conference covered divers topics, starting with a key note on Connected and Automated Vehicle Support Strategies, over unique insights in the E/E development of automotive start-up to profound details on the future importance of Adaptive AUTOSAR for automated driving.

The accompanying exhibition, the numerous breaks and the evening Networking Reception left room for the exchange of experience among the participants. Day 2 offered 3 tracks full of knowledge on Testing, ADAS/Connectivity, Security/OTA which were also very well attended.

We would like to thank all the participants, speakers, exhibitors for their technical expertise, intensive discussions and valuable feedback! We look forward to seeing you at upcoming events!
