2013 Automotive Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum

The Automotive Integrated Electrical Solutions Forum features industry presentations, breakout tracks on specialist topics, a solutions exposition including corporate-sponsored booths, product demonstrations, and networking events. The conference is a day-long, free conference which covers all aspects of electrical and electronic design/simulation within the automotive, commercial vehicle, and off-highway industries. IESF 2013 will take place Thursday, September 19, 2013 at the Ford Conference Center in Dearborn, Michigan.

IESF 2013 includes a new track dedicated to electric and hybrid vehicle design. The keynote will be from Oliver Kuttner, founder and chief executive officer of Edison2, a company involved in the ongoing development of the “Very Light Car” and winner of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize. The Progressive Insurance Automotive X-Prize was a global competition that awarded $10 million to three teams that built cars that achieved at least 100 MPG in real world driving; Edison2 won in the mainstream class.

Other speakers at IESF include Angus Lyon, chief engineer, Electric Drive Train, Drayson Racing Technologies, the company that recently set a new World Electric Land Speed Record of 204.185mph; and Adam Fowlkes, electrical engineering manager from Proterra Inc., the leading provider of zero-emission commercial transit solutions.
