General information about the International Automobile Scientific Forum

The first International Automobile Scientific Forum (IASF) took place in 2003. Over the recent years 8 scientific forums devoted to the following issues were held:

  • Environmentally friendly transport.
  • Energy saving and energy efficiency of vehicles and transport systems.
  • Active and passive safety of the new generation vehicles ensuring compliance with the prospective requirements.
  • E-transport and hybrid vehicles (vehicles with combined power plants).
  • National R&D base development.
  • Intelligent Transport Systems for Improvement of Energy Efficiency and Traffic Safety.

The average value of attendance of the scientific forums is more than 200 participants.

The forums' participating countries are as follows: Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Great Britain, Germany, The Netherlands, Israel, India, Spain, China, Russia, USA, France, Finland, Sweden, South Korea and others.

The Forum work results:

IASF-2018 "Intelligent Transport System Technologies and Components" was held on October 18th-19th 2018. It was dedicated to the centenary of the State Research Center of the Russian Federation FSUE "NAMI".

Among the forum guests and participants were officials from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, automotive plants representatives. The forum was also attended by representatives of leading Russian and foreign universities, the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and foreign companies. The total number of participants exceeded five hundred.

The forum was attended by regular partners: OICA, AVL List GMbH, FISITA, SAE International, Association of Russian Automakers (ARA), Association of Traffic Engineers (ATE), Publishing House AAE Press, National Technology Platform of the Russian Federation – “Environmentally Friendly Vehicles Green Car”.

A welcoming speech addressed to the participants and guests of the forum was made by Alexander Morozov ­– Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, Sergey Gaisin – Chief Executive Officer of FSUE NAMI, David Schutt – Chief Executive Officer of SAE International, Murli Iyer – FISITA Vice President, Executive Advisor on International Relations of SAE International and Valentin Gapanovich – President of Non-Commercial Partnership “Association of Railway Equipment Manufacturers”.

Within four panel discussions “Regulatory and Legal Framework of Autonomous Driving and Social-Economic Problems of Autonomous Vehicle Implementation”, “Prospects of  New Types of Intelligent Land Transport and Technological Vehicles Development”, “Intelligent Transport System Components” and “Modern Trends in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)” reports were presented and discussed by representatives and heads of companies, scientific and educational institutions, such as OICA, GLONASS Union, FSUE “NAMI”, Moscow Automobile and Road Construction State Technical University (MADI), Institute for Transport Economics and Transport Policy Studies HSE, BMSTU (Bauman Moscow State Technical University), Federal Scientific Agroengineering Center VIM, FEV Polska sp. z o.o., United Engineering Center of GAZ Group, Safety Engineering Research sp.j., KAMAZ PJSC, National Instruments Rus LLC, Robert Bosh LLC, AVL List GMbH, Ford Sollers Holding LLC, The Joint Institute of Mechanical Engineering of the NAS of Belarus, LLC Ener Z, JSC "Scientific Design Bureau of Computing Systems", Rohde & Schwarz RUS LLC, Israel Institute of Technology, Russian State Agrarian University - Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy.

During the breaks, guests were shown videos devoted to the 100th anniversary of FSUE “NAMI”. In addition, all participants could visit the exposition, which this year was represented by automobiles for top government officials of different periods and historical cars NAMI-1 and KIM-10. The centerpiece of the exhibition certainly was automobiles based on a united modular platform under the AURUS brand, represented by Senat, Senat Limousine and Arsenal models. National Instruments, Rohde and Schwarz RUS, Keysight, Ansys, Bosch and AVL stands were also presented.

The second day was held at the FSUE “NAMI” Testing Centre and began with a demonstration of vehicles equipped with means of unmanned control in different driving conditions: emergency braking, parking, overcoming a railway crossing, driving along a route, etc.

The second part of the day contained a joint session of 2 sections: "Technologies and components of modern intelligent transport systems" and "Scientific and technical developments of young scientists, post-graduate students and students." Within the sections, presentations were made by representatives of foreign and Russian companies, universities: AVL List GMbH, Italdesign Giugiaro SpA, CSI SpA, FSUE “NAMI”, ENERGO LLC, SINOPSYS LLC, Keysight Technologies Russia, Moscow Polytechnic University and BMSTU (Bauman Moscow State Technical University).

Poster presentations were made by BMSTU (Bauman Moscow State Technical University), Research Institute "MIVAR", FSUE "NAMI", Ryazan State Radio Engineering University (RSREU), Moscow Automobile and Road Construction State Technical University (MADI), Nizhny Novgorod State Technical University n.a. R.E. Alekseev and Moscow Polytechnic University.

IASF-2018 benefit:

Exchange of experience, discussion of solutions for relevant tasks in the field of development, creation, production and implementation of technologies of new types of transport systems, including autonomous (driverless) transport, control systems for transport flows (intelligent transport systems), integrated analysis of possible technical, technological and regulatory and legal solutions. Facilitating interaction between all parties (stakeholders) interested in widespread introduction of intelligent transport systems in everyday life.
