12:00Registration opens
13:00Guided tours to Simulation facilities

All tours start and finish at the Conference location: University of Stuttgart, Pfaffenwaldring 47, 70550 Stuttgart, Germany

Here are some information about the guided tours :

Daimler: The visit will include a slide presentation of the activities at the Daimler Simulation Center, a tour of the Control Station, the Daimler Dynamic Simulator and the Stereoscopic Fixed Base Simulator (as presented during the conference).

Optis: Optis will present real time sensor validation demonstration in physically correct simulation. The demonstration will be carried out with Optis Driving Simulator using Optis VREexperience software interfaced with SCANeRStudio.

FKFS: The visit at FKFS will give an insight into current work on automated driving and related studies using the driving simulator. The tour concludes with a demonstration of the Stuttgart Driving Simulator, the largest high performance vehicle simulator at a research institution in Europe.
