The 2017 edition of the DSC conference is held in Stuttgart (Germany), September 6 – 8, organized by the Driving Simulation Association, FKFS and Renault, and sponsored by Optis. This is the 16th edition of the DSC Conferences, initiated in 1995 by Pr. Andras Kemeny, Chairman of the Conference.

The goal of this international conference is to propose to academics and practitioners an all-round view of the state of the art of driving simulation technology, research and development.

In this conference, with just the right mix of science and industry, you have the opportunity to meet and discuss in a friendly environment with representatives of the world’s leading car manufacturers and suppliers.

This year’s edition is focused on Autonomous Vehicle simulation and VR. In these recent years several concurrent technological revolutions have been seen indeed in several domains: multi-sensorial augmented reality, the convergence between driving simulation and VR, sharing the same technologies and autonomous vehicle driving.

The DSC conference is bringing significant new information in all these fields. You can download the 3DAV Explore application to immerse you in 3D with a helmet or 3D glasses (Homido) – AppStore (Apple ) or Play Store (Android ) and check your autonomous vehicle behavior in a realistic 3D traffic during the conference.

You can go to Clarté’s booth and feel with your hands a true-to-life vehicle material (leather, tissue, plastic, etc.) in an equally true-to-life vehicle cockpit seen in a HTC Vive helmet.

You can also visit Daimler’s newest driving simulators or that of University of Stuttgart or Optis at one of the industrial tours or see Porsche racing simulator on D-Box and Vischers booths of the exhibition area. Close to 35 exhibitors, including AB Dynamics, Ansible Motion, Canon, Dassault Systems, Domeprojection, MTS, Oktal, Optis, Sensodrive, Smart Eye, Sony, Vi-grade, Vires and many others will provide you with real-time simulation demonstrations and product information.

The scientific conference will not only feature the latest results in driving simulation, VR and autonomous vehicle testing but also Keynotes from Daimler, University of Berkeley, ESI, Optis and Oktal. This latter is announcing the acquisition of Renault’s new high performance driving simulator for their new autonomous vehicle simulation center, to be delivered by AVSimulation the new company created by Oktal with Renault, this latter as a minority 35% stake holder.

This latest edition of DSC Europe 2017 VR is strongly committed to the improvement of already appreciated features of the previous editions, like the variety of the topics and sessions, Keynotes, Guided Tours and the concurrent conference and exhibition with close to 300 participants this year.
