MOBILITY CONNECTS THE LUXEMBOURG AUTOMOTIVE COMPONENTS CLUSTER

Date: 21/09/2015

True to the ‘Mobility Connects’ slogan of the IAA 2015, the Luxembourg Automotive Components Cluster and ‘automotive.saarland’, the Saarland automotive cluster, co-host a booth at this major trade fair until 27 September 2015. Nineteen companies and institutions from Luxembourg, Saarland and the Western Palatinate are present at the booth. The ‘Luxembourg Connected Car Networking Event’, which was organised on 17 September, was attended by numerous Cluster members, automotive suppliers from the Greater Region and other players from the automotive sector.

The 66th edition of the international trade fair for mobility IAA takes place from 17 to 27 September in Frankfurt am Main. The joint Luxembourg-Saarland booth D27 in Hall 4 houses a total of 19 companies and institutions from the Greater Region, including the Luxembourg Automotive Components Cluster, as well as Cluster members CEBI, IEE, the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) of the University of Luxembourg and TERALINK Solutions.

‘It is quite obvious that this year’s IAA slogan ‘Mobility Connects’ highlights the innovative field of connected and automated driving,’ says Cluster Manager Joost Ortjens. This topic will also be a priority for the Luxembourg Automotive Components Cluster over the coming months. According to Ortjens other focus areas of the Cluster and its members include key mobility topics such as connected car, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, and autonomous driving.
