OSS.5 Europe 2018

OSS.5 Europe 2018: From fail-safe to fail-operational

The first edition of OSS.5 Europe was a huge success. With attendees, speakers and business partners from different branches of the autonomous driving industry, the conference provided a rich mix of experts on automotive safety. Throughout the 2,5 days, the participants listened to real-world uses cases from companies like Volkswagen, Bosch, Continental, Volvo, Renault and Audi. The interactive World Café and Challenge Your Peers sessions created the perfect environment for discussing current problems, possible solutions as well as future trends while connecting with functional & system safety experts.

With highlight case studies from Fraunhofer Institute about safety in cooperative automated systems, ranging all the way John Thomas’ (MIT) presentation on to analyzing the safety of autonomous vehicles, it’s clear: mastering the operational safety and security challenges we are facing right now will bring the autonomous vehicles to a whole new level.

Shaping the mobility of tomorrow

OSS.5 Europe is coming back to Berlin on September 26-27, 2019. Be part of the thought-provoking discussion and the autonomous business community!
