Testing and Simulation – early safeguarding of complex development targets
With the 7th International Symposium for Development Methodology, we would like to expand the successful format of the conference with the additional focus on virtualisation. To safeguard the development goals, there is a major shift in development methodology to push for more frontloading, moving testing from the real road to test beds and back into the virtual environment. Within the scope of the event, however, virtualization will be intensively examined not only in the form of pure simulation, but primarily in connection with topics of application in vehicle or system testing and according real development environments. Such combined approaches allow early safeguarding of complex development targets.
Early safeguarding of complex development targets requires the transfer of vehicle concepts or components into the "virtual" world. We will not only look at hardware, components or systems, but also on control or software components, which must be parameterized at an early stage in the development process. Development tools and methods involving simulation are a prerequisite for efficient working methods and thus successful products.
As you have certainly noticed, we start the 7th International Symposium with a new logo! With this we would like to highlight the challenges arising within the key topic of connectivity. The connection of technical components and according tasks, coupled with stronger networking of the processes and the active people within them, offer additional and new innovative approaches to solutions which will further become important focus parts of the symposium also in the future.
RDE Real Driving Emissions, networking of the different components in the vehicle and the vehicle with the environment, and automated and / or autonomous driving with ADAS place ever-increasing demands on development processes, tools and, above all, the people involved in these tool-supported processes. Current approaches with regard to all the above aspects will be discussed with in the different session.
In addition to the topics mentioned above, we would naturally like - as in the past 6 symposia - to discuss further methodologies in the field of vehicle and powertrain development. Focuses on testing, calibration, modeling and optimization, but also topics like data analytics - the methodical handling and the learning from large amounts of data - concerns us all.
Be prepared for invigerating international lectures, whose quality is guaranteed by a high-ranking program advisory board. We will keep you up to date and inform you about the final program!
