Safetronic 2022: Great hybrid conference
More than 130 experts from the field of holistic safety for road vehicles followed the program of the 21st Safetronic International Conference this year.
There were 12 presentations, a panel discussion on “Holistic safety – current safety approaches between standards and technologies” and one networking session per day to bring together online and on-site participants. Participants liked the quality and balance of the program.
The on-site participants enjoyed the opportunity for personal exchange in the Filderhalle.
Online participants followed the leading safety event for road vehicles via livestream on their computers.
The hybrid concept was again well received by the participants.
The focus was on innovative development approaches, handling software errors, reliable data processing and holistic safety concepts. The various industry players, e.g. from CARIAD, Infineon, Renault, Stellantis and Valeo were able to provide the participants with news and enrich the discussion with their presentations, both in presence and virtually. A highlight was the keynote from Mercedes-Benz on the safety challenges of the DRIVE PILOT, the world’s first true SAE Level 3 system.
The Safetronic conference is primarily attended by the automotive manufacturing and supplier, electrical/electronics, software development, mechanical engineering and research industries. The participants work in the departments of research & development, design / product development, quality management, software development and technical sales.
Since 2021, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS has taken over the organization of the established industry event from Carl Hanser Verlag. For Prof. Dr. habil. Mario Trapp, Executive Director of Fraunhofer IKS, it is particularly important to ensure “the continuity of Safetronic”. And that in terms of presentation quality and also manufacturer independence.
The next date of the “Safetronic” for 2023 has already been set.
It will take place again in Filderhalle Stuttgart on November 15 and 16.

Safetronic 2021: Premiere for Fraunhofer IKS
Around 100 experts in the holistic safety of road vehicles took part in the 20th Safetronic International Conference. Above all, the quality and balance of the lecture program appealed to the participants.
Meeting in person once again and being able to exchange ideas directly, face to face, despite the strict Corona measures: The approximately 60 experts in the Schwabenlandhalle in Stuttgart-Fellbach obviously enjoyed this. The 20th international Safetronic symposium was held there on November 16 and 17.
Another 40 guests followed the leading event for safety in the automotive sector on their computers via livestream. The hybrid solution was well received by the participants. For example, Simon Fürst, Principal Expert Autonomous Driving Technologies at the BMW Group, joined the screen at the start of the second day and reported on the updates to the ISO TS 5083 standard. This contribution was part of the program item “Updates from standardization” and was in demand among the participants, which was reflected not only by the numerous requests to speak.
The focus was on innovative safety concepts from the perspective of connectivity, autonomous driving, artificial intelligence and electrification. The various industry players, e.g. from Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche, Audi, ETAS or Continental Automotive, were able to contribute with their presentations, both present and virtual, and provide the community with news. Among them were, in addition to BMW, other members of the advisory board from Robert Bosch, Mercedes-Benz, Vay Technology as well as Stellantis.
In the summer of 2021, the Fraunhofer Institute for Cognitive Systems IKS had taken over the organization of the established industry event from Carl Hanser Verlag. For apl. Prof. Dr. habil. Mario Trapp, Institute Director of Fraunhofer IKS, it was particularly important to ensure “the continuity of Safetronic”. And this in terms of quality at the highest level and also manufacturer independence.
The next date of the “Safetronic” for the year 2022 is already fixed. It will take place again in Stuttgart on November 8 and 9.
