Discover the Future of Autonomous Vehicles and More at GTC

AI, VR and autonomous vehicles converge in Munich, Oct. 10-12, at GTC Europe.

The GPU Technology Conference, Europe’s only dedicated conference on AI, VR and autonomous vehicles, is returning to Europe — and we’re revving our engines.

Here’s a sneak peek of what to expect when the GTC world tour makes its pitstop in Munich, Germany, from October 10-12.

GPU Technology Conference

Ready, Set, Go

Every automaker, Tier 1 supplier and automotive research lab is laser-focused on one question: what’s our solution for autonomous driving? GTC Europe will showcase how GPU deep learning is powering the most compelling answers to this challenge.

Attendees can expect 70 automotive speaker sessions from world-leading experts in fields such as computer vision, sensor fusion, software development, regulation and HD mapping. Highlights include:

  • Sajjad Kahn, vice president of Digital Vehicle & Mobility at Daimler AG, describes Mercedes-Benz’s efforts to integrate machine learning and AI into every aspect of its in-vehicle user experience.
  • Erik Coelingh, technology advisor and vice president at Zenuity, discusses the key challenges when developing software for self-driving cars.
  • Stefan Sommer, CEO of ZF Friedrichshafen AG, explores the steps required to fulfill “Vision Zero” — a future in which traffic causes neither accidents nor emissions.
  • Ola Bolström, vice president of Research at AutoLiv, on how a human-centric approach to intelligent vehicles is key to saving lives.
  • Fabian Schmitt, CTO of Streetscooter (owned by Deutsche Post), talks about how autonomous driving, drones and intelligent parcel stations will automate “last mile” delivery.

Seeing Is Believing

GTC Europe attendees will also see the latest autonomous tech in action. Our demo-packed show floor will feature vehicles, pre-production concepts and displays illustrating how self-driving vehicles perceive, understand and react to the world around them.

Don’t miss:

  • Our exterior auto demo zone, featuring an autonomous vehicle challenge between three top universities, a self-driving delivery service demonstration from Deutsche Post and Virtual Vehicle, the first organization to test an autonomous car on public roads in Austria.
  • A close-up view of Roborace’s Robocar, the driverless Formula 1-style road-racer that uses NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 as its AI brain.
  • You will also be able to see the new Audi A8, with the world’s first level 3 automated driving system powered by NVIDIA, as well as Daimlers’ Transformer Car and NVIDIA’s own self-driving car, affectionately known as BB8.
  • A collection of early-stage concepts from across the automotive ecosystem that will give a glimpse into the automotive industry’s future.
