One of the biggest challenges facing the automotive industry today is the strategic shift away from its traditional focus on hardware solutions toward a new software-centric approach: the Software Defined Vehicle (SDV). The digitization of the automobile requires a radical rethink of both development processes and the entire vehicle’s architecture. At the heart of that architecture is the In-Vehicle Network (IVN) and, consequently, it will be directly affected by these changes.
In the past single criteria such as data rates, costs or the engineer's familiarity with the technology were the main factors driving the selection of a particular network technology, today new questions need to be asked: Does the selected transmission technology support the transformation of the E/E architecture from hardware-based to software-centric? Does it offer the necessary flexibility and self-learning capability to be able to continuously implement new functions? Automotive Ethernet, which supports service-oriented architectures, embodies all these features. In addition, Ethernet is now increasingly being used in new areas of application, such as Agriculture vehicles, Truck and Trailer Mining, and others.
The tenth Automotive Ethernet Congress to be held on March 5 - 7, 2024 in Munich will look to address these and other issues. Here, current, and future technology and product developments will be the focus of the conference program, exhibition, and associated workshops. The Congress will offer you the opportunity to share and discuss new ideas around the implementation and use of Ethernet in the vehicle and in your own projects.

"A big applause to the organizers! One of the best digital conferences I have participated during this pandemic. The content and topics were excellent, like previous years. The platform was outstanding, which made the digital experience a very smooth one." Dr. Ahmed Majeed Khan, Siemens Digital Industries Software
"AEC always provides the latest technology updates of IVNs and perfect platform to meet ecosystem partners. Even with the Digital event this year, the event platform had all the facilities to keep the participants and presenters interact well." Nagaramya Jayagopal, Intel Deutschland GmbH
"The Automotive Ethernet Congress has not been just an event, from its year one it has been a place to harness the automotive ethernet ecosystem. Here the stakeholders can interact and learn the pros and cons of the technology, validation challenges for the technology in the ecosystem." Avik Bhattacharya, Sr. Product Manager, Keysight.
“This all-digital version of the Automotive Ethernet Congress was able to assemble the industry experts to engage and discuss the status and future of the In-Vehicle network, like for example new Safety and Security requirements in zonal EE architecture.” Günter Sporer, Director of Marketing, Systems and Applications Automotive Ethernet Solutions, NXP Semiconductors
"A very focused and interesting event. Organized perfectly bridging the gap between "virtual" and "on-site" almost perfectly."
"Perfect platform for Automotive Ethernet industry's experts to get together and exchange information."
