Conference Book 2015
In order to guarantee a worldwide availability of all contributions to the AMAA conferences, a conference book is published in the engeneering library of Springer as part of the series "Lecture Notes in Mobility". The 2015 edition, hosting the conference proceedings of AMAA 2015, will be made available directly at the conference free of charge as part of the information material for the participants. Additional copies are available at your local bookstore or over the web.

The automobile of the future has to respond to two major trends, the electrification of the drivetrain, and the automation of the transportation system. These trends will not only lead to greener and safer driving but re-define the concept of the car completely, particularly if they interact with each other in a synergetic way as for autonomous parking and charging, self-driving shuttles or mobile robots. Key functionalities like environment perception are enabled by electronic components and systems, sensors and actuators, communication nodes, cognitive systems and smart systems integration.
It has been the mission of the International Forum on Advanced Microsystems for Automotive Applications (AMAA) for more than fifteen years to detect novel trends and to discuss the technological implications from early on. Therefore, the topic of the AMAA 2015 will be “Smart Systems for Green and Automated Driving”, thus capturing the two mentioned mega-trends.
This book contains peer-reviewed papers written by leading engineers and researchers which all address the ongoing research and novel developments in the field. The book will be a valuable read for research experts and professionals in the automotive industry but the book may also be beneficial for graduate students.
