ETAS hosts Technology Symposium in Tokyo

ETAS Japan recently hosted the Symposium on Automotive Embedded Systems Development. Aimed at boosting the Japanese automotive industry, the event sought to provide the latest technology information in this field.

The keynote speech was given by Dr. Dirk Hoheisel, member of the Robert Bosch GmbH board of management. He spoke about the future of mobility and highlighted the challenges for system design with regard to security aspects, connectivity, and the increase in complexity of embedded systems.

Further speeches were given by Tomonori Nizato from the Honda Motor Co Ltd, who discussed efforts to refine model-based development (MBD) processes in engine R&D, and Dr. Tobias Kreuzinger from ETAS Japan, who spoke about “Virtualization as key for efficient development of embedded automotive systems – Chances and challenges of XiL”.

In addition to these speeches, OEMs such as Mazda, Nissan, Toyota, Hino, and Renault as well as tier 1 suppliers like Robert Bosch Japan and Denso hosted sessions. Furthermore, partner companies including IAV, Cybernet Systems, and Renesas Electronics and the Nippon Institute of Technology, representing the academic world, gave presentations.

The event surpassed all attendance expectations, drawing 245 representatives from the Japanese automotive industry to the Tokyo Conference Center Shinagawa. “Please hold this symposium again!” was just one of the many positive comments in response to the Symposium on Automotive Embedded Systems Development. Preparations for the second symposium are already under way, so save the date: September 30, 2016!
