11th AUTOSAR Open Conference

November 6th - 7th, 2018 in Shanghai, China

New applications such as advanced driving assistance, autonomous driving and V2X as well as new requirements and possibilities from the “Internet of Things” demand changes to the system architecture of automotive electronics. Likewise, to ensure autonomous driving vehicles, electric mobility and the offboard connectivity, safety and security must be considered with high priority.

By providing a common specification, architecture and methodology, the AUTOSAR development partnership forms the foundation for reliable automotive system architectures. AUTOSAR is a strong community of more than 200 leading companies from automotive, electronics, semiconductor and software industries. AUTOSAR focuses on standardization with the goal of reliability, scalability and maintainability. The resulting specifications and code implementations are free to use for all AUTOSAR partners over the world.

To share a holistic overview of the AUTOSAR standards, recent developments, long-term planning and organizational changes, AUTOSAR hosts an annual AUTOSAR Open Conference (AOC). The agenda is complemented by presentations from AUTOSAR partners. This leading event in the sector of automotive system development is an excellent opportunity to interact with a great number of industry experts. After previous events in Detroit, Tokyo, Gothenburg and the Californian Silicon Valley (for "Reviews" scroll down), the 11th AOC takes place in Shanghai, China this year.

If you believe in the value of collaboration to develop long-term software solutions for the global automotive industry, meet the AUTOSAR experts at the
