Past event: Automotive Braking Systems USA 2023 Conferene

Brake-By-Wire | Redundancy | Autonomous Vehicles | Going Beyond Braking

The automotive braking segment is going through an upheaval. The way braking system work has changed fundamentally, with vehicle electrification and the EV transition being the biggest driver for change. This speed of advancement in EV and the inevitable roll-out of vehicles with L3 capabilities is presenting challenges and opportunities like never before.

The biggest topic on everyone's minds right now is Brake-by-Wire - BBW isn't a future technology any longer, and OEMs and Tier-1 companies are unanimously interested in the Roadmap, Architecture, Innovations, and Level of Redundancy for electric and autonomous L-3 vehicles.

This is just the tip of the challenges iceberg for the automotive braking industry in the United States; other key themes being discussed in braking circles are Regenerative Braking, Optimal Level of Redundancy, Electromechanical Braking, Role of Software and Software-Defined Vehicles, and Removal of Park Pawl among other topics.

Our 7th Braking Systems USA 2023 returns to Detroit, Michigan bringing together representatives from across the automotive braking community. Join to address these challenges, and more across three full days of presentations, discussions and technical demonstrations, and the opportunity to networking with attendees from the co-located Steering Systems conference.
  • Adapting to new and changing requirements for braking in EVs & AVs
  • Adjusting technology for AD L3+ and higher levels of software control
  • Ensuring redundancy & safety in future brake architecture
Join your peers to address the most critical challenges across the full three days of:
  • Exclusive expert presentations from leaders at major vehicle manufacturers and Tier 1s
  • In-depth discussions with innovators and thought leaders in the braking community
  • Technical demonstrations
  • Curated networking opportunities
  • Co-located with the Automotive Steering Systems USA 2023 Conference
