23rd IEEE International Conference on
Emerging Technologies And Factory Automation
September 4-7, 2018, Torino, Italy

Industry Day

Quo Vadis Automobiles ?

What is the future of the automobile industry? Hybrid fuel/battery powered vehicles, or, just, battery powered cars - even trucks. The solid-state batteries offer today 500 miles per charge, and most importantly, one minute for a full charge.

Are self driving cars going to be accepted by people. Do we need that option? Apparently safer then with a human driver.

What are the technologies behind the self driving cars/trucks? How do they fit in the fabric of the smart highway, and, particularly, urban automation.

In this context, are the technologies at hand sufficient to drive changes in those directions?

Those and other issues pertaining to the evolution, or revolution, of the automobile industry will be presented in depth by representatives of some of the most prominent companies in the automobile industry sector from EU, and the US.

Torino is headquarters of automobile giants: Alfa Romeo, FIAT, and Lancia
