We are excited to share, that the third Next Generation Steering Systems Europe Summit will be held on April 20 - 21, 2021 Virtual LIVE with Matthias Joos, Global Product Management Electric Power Steering Rack Vice President from Robert Bosch Automotive Steering as our summit chairman!
With two successful events in the heart of the US automotive area Detroit chaired by Ade Badiru, Steering Technical Expert from General Motors in 2019 and by Garry Smith, Global Steering Technical Leader from Ford, postponed to April 20 - 21, 2021, the Next Generation Steering Systems Europe 2021 will be taking place Virtual LIVE.


With key-topics such as personalized, automated, connected as well as electrified and its impact on steering system technology this conference will be mainly focusing on mid-term challenges the steering industry is currently facing.

We will also continue to elaborate the cross-industry aspect, the conference is also covering: fail-safe/fail-operational mechanisms for x-by-wire systems in automotive, off-highway and aerospace.

Join us on our journey through impacts for steering system based on new requirements evolving from Level 2 Hands-Free functionalities, the impact of the electrification on the multiple domains of EPS systems and how SW and controls partitions are changing between OEMs and suppliers!

VIRTUAL Experience

There has never been a more important time for the automotive industry to come together and learn how to survive and thrive in a post Co- vid-19 world. We combine both in-person and virtual experiences – as some of you can ́t or do not want to travel due to health or safety concerns or maybe your organization has limited travel spend.

RedCabin has invented a unique platform where we are able to connect and network, collaborate, exchange ideas and learn from each other, commitment stays the same: using collaboration and interactivity to develop new products, partnerships and processes which tackle the biggest challenges in automotive and improve the user experience. As demand in innovative solutions is still strong, RedCabin Virtual Summits with our recent webinars we attracted thousands of online attendees – Save your travel costs and get involved in our interactive platform from your home or office.  􏰙􏰉􏰋􏰚 􏰑􏰋􏰕􏰉 􏰍􏰋􏰚􏰄 􏰋􏰉 􏰋􏰛􏰆
