National Instruments UK & Ireland has announced the Automotive Solutions Conference, which will take place at TRW Conekt, Solihull, on Tuesday 18 September 2007.
This free one-day technical conference will showcase the latest NI hardware and software tools for automotive test, design and automation applications. Attendees will learn how to develop automotive applications from easy, in-vehicle data logging applications to complete rapid control prototypes using National Instruments products. NI technologies include a wide range of flexible, reliable and rugged products that empower engineers to create user-defined, cost-effective systems that reduce development time and maintenance costs.
The Keynote, entitled 'Automotive Challenges: More technology, faster development, fewer emission', will be followed by demonstrations of in-vehicle data logging, traction and suspension testing, and technical sessions including:
- Using LabVIEW for ECU Design and Automotive Diagnostics
- An Alternative Approach to Developing Test Rig Software by TRW ConeKt
- Automotive Measurement Technology: In-Vehicle and in the Lab
- LabVIEW for designing, prototyping and deploying automotive embedded systems
Automotive customers, government regulations and internal pressures for increased service revenue demand that the automotive market evolves at an unprecedented pace. NI, with its strong history in the automotive market, helps to relieve these pressures by enabling innovative products to be brought to market faster and at a lower cost. Engineers and scientists can apply NI components in many areas, including rapid control prototyping, hardware-in-the-loop, design validation, manufacturing test, and field service. With Graphical System Design, NI has expanded virtual instrumentation beyond the traditional areas of prototype and test and into design, by providing automotive manufacturers with a platform to accelerate design, prototyping and deployment of systems for the automotive market.
An exhibition will run alongside the conference, featuring the latest developments for the automotive industries from industry partners including TRW Conekt, CCS (Computer Controlled Solutions), AmFax, Omiga Technology Ltd, TBG Solutions and Mindready.
