From infotainment to autonomous driving, how Ethernet is uniquely qualified to transform
the vehicle

23-24 October 2014
COBO Center
Detroit, Michigan, USA

The IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day is the number one venue for OEMs, suppliers, semiconductor vendors and tool providers to discuss and learn about the evolution of Ethernet standards, technologies and applications in the automotive environment.

Now, for the first time under IEEE-SA sponsorship, the 2014 Technology Day will build upon and expand this successful series of previous industry sponsored events.

The IEEE-SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day is open to anyone interested in next generation automotive communication technologies, as well as those currently involved in related standardization and interoperability activities.
