THE SUMMIT

We are excited to share, that the third Next Generation Steering Systems Conference will be held on September 29-30, 2020 at the Bosch Heidehof in Stuttgart, Germany with Matthias Joos, Global Product Management Electric Power Steering Rack Vice President from Robert Bosch Automotive Steering as our conference 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 September 1-2, 2020, the Next Generation Steering Systems EUROPE 2020 will be taking place in Stuttgart, one of the main areas of Germany`s automotive industry. As the conference venue Bosch Heidehof is located next door to the beautiful former residence of the company founder Robert Bosch, we will certainly receive an impression of his outstanding achievements as an pioneer in automotive industry!

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!
