Registration was closed on May 15 (Wednesday, 5pm EDT). There will be no on-site registration this year due to limited space.

The Automotive Research Center is a U.S. Army Center of Excellence for the modeling and simulation of ground vehicles, led by the University of Michigan. We focus on basic scientific problems associated with ground vehicles, including autonomy, management of power and energy within vehicles, mobility and survivability of the complete vehicle system.

Each year, we bring together members of the automotive research community from across academia, government and industry to share our latest research developments. It is an opportunity to discuss Army-relevant efforts, and to leverage and transfer our efforts to industry.

This year, we are co-hosting the Summit on Advancing Modeling and Simulation for Autonomous Ground Vehicles. SAMS AGV provides a venue for open conversations between users and developers of the modeling and simulation tools across government, industry, and academia. The goal of SAMS AGV is to understand the current landscape of modeling and simulation for AGVs and to define a roadmap to address the challenges of today and tomorrow. The SAMS AGV schedule will encourage broad discussion, networking, and relationship building that will lead to collaboration and innovative solutions.

The event is free of charge. We cordially invite you to join our community of dedicated researchers at this event.
