Smithers Apex has announced the first Image Sensors Automotive conference (IS Auto) to take place on 17-18 June 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Brussels - Le Palace, Belgium.

LEATHERHEAD, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Image Sensors organisers have released the full programme for the new 2014 automotive conference, a two day conference covering discussions of automotive imaging systems and technology.

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in the automotive sector is set to grow exponentially over the next 5 years, and many systems involving visual spectrum image capture. Implementation in the automotive sector is still in its relative infancy and as the volume and sophistication of installed systems increase rapidly, there is a need for comprehensive dialogue throughout the supply chain.

Keynote Speaker Aled Williams from Euro NCAP, will present the ‘Future of Vision Based ADAS in Vehicle Safety Certification’, unveiling certification plans to 2020. Sabin Nemes of BMW and Dr Martin Punke from Continental review the latest automotive camera systems for ADAS, setting the scene for the discussion around current challenges and the direction of technology development.

Chaired by Prof Patrick Denny of Valeo Vision Systems, IS Auto is set to tackle issues facing the development and adoption of camera technology in production vehicles – standards, testing, series production, environmental factors, image processing, manufacturing will all be addressed and discussed. Senior figures from Aptina, OmniVision, Toshiba, and Melexis will present the latest sensor innovations, and future challenges for sensor and camera manufacturers operating in automotive applications.

The conference is bringing together OEM teams with Tier 1 suppliers, plus sensor and processor developers to discuss the OEM requirements, latest technology, shared challenges, and the pending regulatory environment as well as testing, standards and safety certification. Currently confirmed speakers include: Euro NCAP, BMW, Continental, Ficosa, SmartSurv Vision Systems, Valeo, Texas Instruments, Yogitech, Aptina, OmniVision, Secured by Design, DxO Labs and more speakers.
