GSVF 2024

Virtualization of Software-Defined Vehicles


The GSVF 2024 focuses on methods, tools, and processes for ensuring the virtualization of software-defined vehicles.



#GSVF2024 LIVE IN GRAZ and Online

Technological developments are rapidly raising the bar for vehicle requirements. Cars are expected to detect pedestrians in real-time, drive and park autonomously, be carbon-neutral, and protect their occupants like never before. To meet these expectations, key technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, advanced sensors, 5G connectivity, and powerful data centers are being deployed. The result is Software-Defined Vehicles (SDVs) – cars that leverage software to meet these demanding requirements. ​

Virtualization as a key technology for the software defined vehicle

The vehicle records its surroundings with sensors and thermal imaging, "learns" to adapt its driving functions to this environment, uses intelligent navigation, and communicates with other AI-Defined Vehicles and intelligent infrastructure. What sounds futuristic is already a reality. AI algorithms enable real-time vehicle diagnostics and environmental perception. Essential to this is so-called Edge Computing – data processing within the vehicle itself. Because only in this way can cars react in real-time and much faster than a human ever could. Making vehicles smarter, safer, and more user-friendly is a core task at the Virtual Vehicle and is also a topic at our annual specialist conference, GSVF. ​
