The 2019 Automotive Forum


When: Monday 30th September, 08:30 to 17:50
Location: Room 741A + dinner
Chair: Thomas Zwick, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Co-Chair: Frank Gruson, Continental AG, Germany
Local Arrangement Chair: Stéphane Méric, INSA de Rennes, IETR, France

Following applications like keyless entry and tyre pressure monitoring systems, mobile communications and recently automotive radar made microwave technologies be a strong pillar inside the automotive world. The first 77 GHz automotive radar sensors entered the European market in 1999. In 2019 – 20 years later – the European Microwave Association (EuMA) for the first time organises the Automotive Forum to provide an open platform for industrial experts to discuss technical aspects and market issues in the area of microwaves in automotive industry.

The forum consists of a good mix of technical presentations, plenary and panel discussions as well as networking time. The forum mainly addresses technical experts from automotive industry throughout the whole supply chain. Keynote speakers will present their views on special technical solutions as well as regulatory or strategicissues. The event will close with a networking dinner.
