Real discussions, interactive sessions, cognitive presentations and lively panels from top suspension, chassis and vehicle dynamics professionals. The Summit will discuss the diversity of practical approaches to autonomous driving, EVs, sensors and ADAS, and its correlation with suspension, advanced chassis and e-steering modifications. This event will also focus on OEM and Tier 1 insights into the latest suspension trends including active, fully active, passive, semi-active, air, electromagnetic and electronic suspension systems. Innovations in dampers, shock absorbers, bushings, springs and components, as well as materials advances, will be discussed by practitioners from top-ranked automotive companies. Special focus will be dedicated to vehicle dynamics control system innovations and suspension system integration. The Summit will be interesting for all vehicle performance experts as it serves as a real platform for networking and interaction with peers. We look forward to welcoming you in Cologne this October!
