Preliminary Program

09:20 am - 09:40 am Ushering in the era of the Self-Healing Car

EVP Marketing

The era of software driven cars is upon us. Agile, user-centric software development processes create a plethora of continuous opportunities and risks for the OEMs, even after the car has left the production line. Aurora Labs’ Self-Healing Software™ for connected cars uniquely address all three stages of a software health solution, future proofing the next generation of software driven automotive features. Using machine learning algorithms, Aurora Labs detects line-of-code faults and predicts downtime events, fixes errors on-the-go and enables reliable and cost-effective rollouts of new automotive features to all ECUs in the vehicle without any downtime for the user. Aurora Labs is paving the way for the age of the self-healing car.

09:45 am -10:05 am The Next Chapter in Protecting Connected Transportation from Cyberthreats

Head of Product Management, Marketing and Channels

Cyber threats are increasing rapidly as the number of connected vehicles grows. Conventional security measures cannot advance and deploy quickly enough to handle the growing number of threats. Most vulnerabilities in vehicles today are unknown until an attack happens. Cybersecurity measures, using rules, logic and signatures are required but cannot detect unknown threats, leaving OEMs, Fleets and customers vulnerable to zero-day attacks and causing financial and safety risks. The need to protect against unknown threats opens a new chapter in cybersecurity and anomaly detection - solutions that combine deterministic security measures to protect against know threats with zero false-positive performance with an Artificial Intelligence (AI) profiling and anomaly detection technology to provide future proof security against unknown threats. The AI anomaly detection engine establishes a baseline of the vehicle’s normal behavior and identify anomalies to uncover unknown vulnerabilities and malfunctions. In this session we will also show examples of cyberattacks detection using AI technology that cannot be detected using conventional security measures. We will also show how enabling economic big data analysis for anomaly detection in the cloud, requires an advanced data optimization and compression software that can be implemented using Machine Learning technology.

10:10 am -10:30 am L2*: ADAS Software Framework for the Journey From L2 to L4

Director Technology and Innovation

There are popular L1 features on the market today like ACC, and LKA, which adjusts vehicle speed according to traffic on the road, and which help drivers stay within their lanes. Current implementations are getting increasingly sophisticated; however, they continue to experience issues like handling sharp curves (e.g. staying within the lane), mixing up lead cars to follow etc. Part of the limitations of the current features stem from the fact that they are developed as independent features that work separately, although they can be turned on to work at the same time. Eatron has taken a different approach to develop a SW framework to support multiple ADAS features and to serve as a baseline for L2+ ADAS functionality called L2 star. L2 Star utilizes all the available sensors and builds a model of the surroundings of the vehicle (other vehicles, lanes etc.). For all features, the baseline is this environment model. The control functionality is also shared, and the framework utilizes a MIMO control framework where both lateral and longitudinal control signals are calculated taking into account respective constraints. Individual features can still be turned off, but the core control framework will continue to run and still take into account all constraints to offer an enhanced driver experience. We will present the main framework and our motivations when developing this framework, as well as our simulation-based approach to developing and validating this SW architecture.

10:35 am -10:55 am Vacuum Casting Technology for Electric Motors

Sales Area Manager & Marketing

According to the main topics of VTM Meetings, Demak will focus its contribution on the resin encapsulation of electrical motors and, above all, E Drive motors. Thanks to the experience gained during these last years, Demak will present the many advantages of a full encapsulation compared to other insulation methods such as impregnation and trickling technologies. The resin it’s a perfect electrical insulator and it gives properties absolutely incomparable with other insulating methods: enhanced water and dust resistance, chemical resistance, less vibrations, less noise but most of all a perfect heat dissipation. Demak, having supplied full automatic lines to OEM and Tier1 suppliers, will discuss the encapsulating process through the analysis of an automatic line and with the use of a specific resin system specially developed for electrical traction motors. The use of Continuous Vacuum Technology is crucial in Demak equipment and processes, in order to guarantee the best impregnation without any bubble or voids into the final product. The Demak Full Automatic Line it’s not only made for huge production numbers but for precision and improved casting processes too. Demak Group has two hearts: mechanical and chemical, in this way we provide 360° support and complete custom processes.

11:00 am -11:20 am Smart EV Charging Infrastructure


Go To-U is the only platform on the market introducing unique booking features for EV drivers. With our app, drivers can book the charging station at the most convenient time plus book and pay for the services at the charging spot (table at the restaurant, hotel room, SPA services). We are a one-stop shop for EV drivers who want to secure a smooth journey. Go To-U’s unique value proposition for partnering HORECA businesses is a cloud-based EV management system, which makes it possible to connect every business to the platform offering marketing and PR tools together with charging management and statistics. We give businesses the opportunity to attract more clients and boost their environmental credentials.

11:25 am - 11:45 am Why and When Will EV Charging be Software-Defined? Everything You Want to Know About SDC (Software-Defined Charging

Co-Founder & CEO

All of us know that the ease of charging will significantly help the growth of the EVs market. Is the problem a question of number, of location, of benefits associated to those charging stations? There is not only one segment, EVs will be used for company cars, for private trips, for delivery etc. We will look at the required ingredients to enable conciliating many parameters and constraints from the full value chain contributing to the EV charging business, and suggest an approach where users will get their life simplified to anticipate or improvise where, when to charge their EV. The future is about smart software, which makes has access to the right information to make it a data lake ready to produce valuable information for the whole value chain!

11:50 am -12:10 pm Arrivo – The More Efficient EV of the Future


Arrivo – the backbone of future city transportation. Congestion plus autonomous cars equal autonomous congestion! Transportation demand has doubled over the last three decades. There is no indication that this trend will stop, quite the opposite; ride haling services in many North American cities have increased vehicle miles dramatically. Autonomous cars in the future will undoubtedly make traffic safer. But in a future of ever-growing demand for mobility in the urban environment, how will cities provide their citizens with the necessary capacity ? Arrivo is the autonomous transportation system of the future that will be able to provide ten times more capacity.
