We would like to thank all attendees, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors for a successful congress 2016!
Some 700 attendees, speakers and exhibitors from 20 nations – the 2nd Automotive Ethernet Congress staged by Elektronik automotive with support from Continental grew sizeably compared to its already highly successful debut one year earlier.
How such a concentration of Ethernet expertise and competence can be profitable, can benefit all those taking part, showed right from the start in the first keynotes: Kirsten Matheus of BMW drew the audience into the proceedings by throwing out short questions. Aurora Sere-Schneider of Continental went on to speak of a "revolution in architecture" triggered by Ethernet.
Extra to papers on PHY and cable, architecture, communication plus test and validation, the subject of security was a major focus of the congress. Automotive Ethernet was of large assistance in "making security an integral component of the automobile", stressed Clara Otero Pérez of NXP, in her keynote. In future automotive Ethernet could even be used over the clouds: Airbus was testing this attractive Ethernet variant to cable passenger cabins. But in the automotive sector itself there is much concrete progress in Ethernet use. Representatives from Audi, Volvo and PSA Peugeot Citroen for instance spoke of how they intend to implement this technology in their vehicles.
In the accompanying trade show 30 companies presented products and solutions – from the tiniest semiconductor chip through to an HiL test system the size of a refrigerator.
We look forward to seeing you next year for the 3rd Automotive Ethernet Congress in Munich!
Save the date: February 7 - 8, 2017!
