The Proving Ground Conference
Automotive Proving Grounds are facing new challenges e.g., with an increasing number of autonomous vehicles under test, or vehicles which are tested automatically. As safety remains top priority for everyone involved in testing, changes result in many fields such as test protocols, design, operations, and connectivity.
The Proving Ground Conference aims to serve the community as a venue for exchange and discussions. We invite everyone interested to meet (again) in person, share knowledge and experience, and connect with experts alike.
