DENSO to Share Future of Mobility Insights at SAE International’s 2019 World Congress Experience

Apr. 2, 2019 News Releases Events

Southfield, Michigan – DENSO, the world’s second largest mobility supplier, will showcase its expertise among industry leaders in the automotive community at SAE International’s 2019 World Congress Experience (WCX19) in Detroit, Michigan, at Cobo Center, April 9-11. DENSO’s sponsorship and panel participation is part of the company’s major focus on key mobility initiatives such as electrification, automated driving and connected cars.

“As a leading automotive supplier committed to a mobility-driven future, we value opportunities to exchange wisdom with others in the field at WCX19, an event which DENSO has proudly sponsored for 19 consecutive years,” said Bill Foy, senior vice president of Research and Development at DENSO’s North American headquarters. “This is an opportunity for industry leaders to come together and discuss the trends shaping the future of automotive. DENSO is excited to share our latest developments in software solutions and other technologies to take transportation into the future.”

This year, Justin McBride, advisor to DENSO’s proof of concept team, will participate in a panel discussion focused on advanced in-vehicle Human Machine Interface (HMI) systems, critical as the industry moves toward level 3 and 4 automated vehicle technologies. DENSO is developing voice biometrics technology to help vehicles identify which person in the cabin is speaking and to ignore road noise, electronics and music.

The interior of vehicles continues to transform due to automated driving. For example, DENSO recently joined the Digital Olfaction Automotive Consortium (DOAC) as a founding member to set the standard for odor measurement.

Over 10,000 technical experts and business leaders will be attending WCX19 to learn about the evolution of the automotive industry and emerging technologies such as connectivity to automated vehicles, Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data and more. WCX19 also aims to help individuals workshop their skills and provides networking experiences essential for professional development.
