Together with its partners from the Cluster Electric Mobility South-West, the Stuttgart Region Economic Development Corporation, Baden-Württemberg International and in cooperation with Ontario (Canada), the State Agency e-mobil BW has put together an expert program on new mobility solutions and automotive topics especially for the digital edition of Hannover Fair. The conference discussed new technologies for the powertrain, digitalisation and artificial intelligence (AI) and showed: Baden-Württemberg is on its way into a new climate-friendly mobility age.

All presentations to the five sessions are available now on YouTube as video-on-demand.

Session 2, New added value through key components

Session 3, Automated and Connected Driving

Session 5, Autonomous and Connected Driving in Ontario / Canada

Connecting technology and automotive sectors and working together with international partners on sustainable mobility solutions, that is a goal of e-mobil BW. An important contribution is the long-standing cooperation and partnership with the Canadian province of Ontario. Both regions are united by their successful automotive clusters and cutting-edge technology companies. That's also why they are similarly affected by the shift towards software-dominated vehicles. e-mobil BW is involved in a strategic partnership to learn from the high-tech region of Ontario.

In this session about autonomous and connected driving, Canadian companies and networks presented themselves. One of them was the Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN). The goal is to commercialise advanced automotive technologies, promote smart mobility solutions from Ontario and showcase Ontario's leadership in the latest transportation and infrastructure technologies. In doing so, AVIN supports small and medium-sized companies from the province and connects them with global partners. One start-up that has already been able to take advantage of this funding is SmartCone Technologies. In the "AutoGuardian" project, they are working with sensors for the infrastructure to make traffic safer. The project is being tested on the streets of Ottawa and Whitby. The fact that software will become an important part of the OEM supply chain in the future was addressed by the last presentation by Blackberry QNX. This is accompanied by challenges such as the application of autonomous vehicles on the roads and cyber security.
