9:30 am: Breakfast and Registration
10:00 am – 12:45 pm: Morning sessions (including breaks):
10:00 am: Introduction—Welcome to Cetecom + Overview of Anritsu in Automotive
Welcome and overview of the Anritsu Automotive Solutions and use cases to set the tone for the day-long sessions.
Presented by: Adnan Khan, Technology and Market Development Director, Anritsu
Amber Neves, Director of Sales & Marketing, Cetecom
  Automotive Market Trends and Technology Overview
Overview of market trends, challenges, and key technologies driving the Connected Car paradigm in the Automotive space.
Presented by: Jonathan Borrill, Head of Global Market Technology, Anritsu
  Automotive Market Focus Areas
Brief Introduction to the key market spaces and applications for Anritsu.
Presented by: Adnan Khan, Technology & Market Development Director, Anritsu
  The Role of the TCU is Changing - Opportunity or Challenge?
As the 5G TCU use case continues its evolution, the deployment efforts and related tests are evolving as well. This session will share an overview of the 5G TCU, the challenges posed for its adoption and how Anritsu offers a test platform capability for L3+ to AD functional 5G TCU test.
Presented by: Shinji Hoshino, Director, Anritsu
  Keeping up with V2X, ADAS and Autonomous Driving
So where are we now with C-V2X? This session will share updates on C-V2X R16 and R17, the increasing use cases for Safety-related ADAS functions and its impact on test needs. We'll also discuss how interference monitoring is critical for development efforts and test plans.
Presented by: Jonathan Borrill, Head of Global Market Technology, Anritsu
  Evolving Automotive BUS Communications
CAN communication has been widely used in Automotive and new use cases are creating needs for additional bus communications in vehicles. This session will present why a CAN alternative is needed, options being considered/evaluated with challenges involved, and how Anritsu is enabling these use case evaluations.
Presented by: John James, Field Application Engineer, Anritsu
  WOW! The Material Impacts the Automotive Function?
With sensors being more heavily used for ADAS and AD functionality, the impact of materials is facing heavy scrutiny. Where and why is material selection critical? In this session, we will discuss what are the impacts and how to address them in design stages.
Presented by: Michael Yang, Sr. Product Manager, Anritsu
12:45 pm – 1:45 pm: Lunch
1:45 pm – 4:45 pm: Afternoon sessions (including breaks):
  Car Electronic Device Approval-Related News out of Europe
The difference between Europe and USA for permitted use of automotive radar application in the 79 GHz and 60 GHz range and trends. New focus in Europe on intermodulation (multiple transmitter) and why this is more important than in USA.
Presented by: Dr. Peter Nevermann, Corporate Director, Consulting & Business Dev., Cetecom
  HIL Testing
HIL testing continues to be a key test methodology for vehicle and ADAS development efforts. In this session, dSPACE will share a HIL test overview, its benefit and challenges, and some new directions and applications including the combined dSPACE and Anritsu solution for 5G TCU Connectivity HILS test.
Presented by: dSPACE
  5G MIMO OTA Test
Automotive applications is seeing rising importance and key learnings from Over the Air (OTA) tests. This session will share an overview of a combined AeroGT Labs and Anritsu solution for 5G OTA MIMO testing.
Presented by: Lily Qin, Vice President of Business Development, AeroGT Labs
  New Challenges When Integrating Antennas Within a Car
There are new challenges when developing antennas for cars for access to mobile networks. Those are about antenna performance but also for regulatory related properties. We will talk about those trends (buried antenna systems, higher number of antennas) and the related physics (Chu Wheeler criterion) and why supplier for car antennas do not have the same means to overcome those issues as mobile phone makers have. Finally we will discuss solutions and what to focus on.
Presented by: Dr. Peter Nevermann, Corporate Director, Consulting & Business Dev., Cetecom
  Automotive Module Integration And Certification
Overview of the typical integration process of a wireless module in an automotive application, its associated HW/SW challenges, as well as some of the common issues during carrier certification.
Presented by: Thales
  Full vehicle antenna pattern evaluation for ADAS deployment
Sensor design and individual pattern verification does not assure that the overall vehicle has good connectivity with the required telematic systems. The mounting location and materials nearby the sensors play a critical role in the performance, and thus full vehicle tests for ADAS systems must be part of the evaluation process.
Presented by: Jari Vikstedt, Director Wireless Solutions, ETS-Lindgren

  Unique 5G TCU Connectivity integrated with Hardware in Loop (HIL) test scenarios
  Testing PCIe® for Next Generation Automotive Communications
  Clearing RF Spectrum for V2X Connectivity
  Measuring Radar Antenna Patterns with a VNA

4:45 pm: Closing Comments and Raffle
