Disruption – it’s closer than you think


At recent CCF events and elsewhere, and even in the humble The Earthmover & Civil Contractor magazine, we have been hearing plenty about disruption – technologies that can become mainstream, change the way we live and business, and put us at serious risk of becoming irrelevant if we ignore them.

One of those technologies is autonomous vehicles, and if you think this is just science fiction, then there is an Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium 2016 taking place in Stuttgart (Germany) on 31 May – 2 June.

Yes – they have enough to talk about it for 3 days – longer than a CCF Conference! Speakers will come from some of the world’s leading car manufacturers, a host of specialist technology suppliers and academia.

Topics will cover:

  • Embedded software testing
  • Reliability testing of software and hardware systems
  • Safety and crash testing
  • Fail-safe testing
  • Cyber threat testing
  • Validation and verification
  • Autonomy software
  • VeHIL
  • V2V and V2X testing
  • Robotics
  • Testing legislation
  • Safety standards and legislation
  • Human factors and HMI testing
  • Case studies
  • Possibilities
  • Best practices.

It’s not going away, and it could significantly change the way that a lot of civil infrastructure is designed and built. Find out more at:
