Sensors play an important role not only in the fields of robotics and internet of things. Emission control and engine management also use sensitive sensors, such as: temperature sensors, differential pressure sensors, soot sensors, NOx sensors and many more. On 28 and 29 June 2017 international decision-makers of leading automotive manufacturers, suppliers and sensor manufacturers will once again gather at the annual meeting point for the branch: The 4th International Conference SENSORS for Exhaust gas Aftertreatment and CO2-Reduction. Speakers from TE Connectivity, AVL, CMR Group, ADZ, Deutsches Patentamt, MEMS, IAV, CTS Corp, Bayreuth Engine Research Center (BERC) and many more await you. Experience first-hand how automotive manufacturers, suppliers and research institutes from the automotive branch pick up on and handle the current challenges regarding automotive sensors. The conference lasts two days and includes 15 presentations, 25 minutes each, an evening event and a guided factory tour at MAN Diesel & Turbo in Augsburg.
On 27 June 2017, the day before the conference, we will offer an ADDITIONAL SEMINAR: Basic Principles of Exhaust Gas Sensor Technology – Essential knowledge about the key sensors and their functions.
State-of-the-Art Sensor Technology:
- Pressure & Temperature
- Nitrogen Oxide & Ammonia
- Soot & Soot Loading
- Implementation of Sensors in ECUs & OBD
EXCERPT of SPEAKERS:
