Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day

We are closely monitoring travel restrictions and constraints related to COVID-19. The health and safety of our attendees are our number one priority. We are currently taking an optimistic approach to prepare for a Hybrid event. There will be options to exhibit virtually. We will provide status updates on the event format as they occur, please continue to check this page. We will follow the BMW COVID-19 Protocols during the in-person event.

The 10th year anniversary (11th Edition) of the 2021 IEEE SA Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Day (E&IP@ATD) is the premier venue for automobile manufacturers, suppliers, semiconductor vendors, tool providers, engineers, scientists, educators, and the media to share ground breaking ideas along with implementation strategies and applications related to Automotive Ethernet Systems. Attendees will receive and share information, and actively participate in the latest developments in shaping Automotive Ethernet into a globally deployed, volume car automotive network.

Presentations will provide insights into the developments, trends and solutions in the following topics:

  • Current automotive use-cases and future perspectives
  • Ethernet's role to facilitate cloud connectivity
  • Ethernet network design and specification
  • Ethernet requirements for automated driving applications
  • Safety, security and reliability of Ethernet communications
  • Markets and strategies
  • Tools and tests methods
  • Present and future physical layer and protocol solutions
