Central & Eastern European Automotive Forum 2017

BACC together with government agency Invest Lithuania and with over 250 delegates attended one of the largest automotive event in the 12-country CEE region.

OEMs, T1 and T2 suppliers, as well as solutions providers al gather in Prague each year for 2 days of news and networking.

This year Invest Lithuania at a forum session “EUROPEAN TRENDS & CEE REGION – forecasts, policies and investments” presented opportunities doing business in Lithuania and encouraged expand operations in our country.

Trend is expected that both suppliers and manufacturers already operating in CEE are more likely to consider a new location either nearby their current CEE location, or to one of the other countries in the region.

Lithuania’s got talent!

Last week Baltic automotive components cluster (BACC) and startup “Rubedo sistemos” participated in AUDI innovation scouting event which was held in Riga.

Startup Rubedo sistemos presented 2 products/services they are currently working on: Carefree Mirrors and Rubedo CVM. There were very interesting and exciting.

More information about products:

  • Carefree Mirrors – depth sense technology application in human driver operated cars which automatically adjusts side mirrors based on the estimated 3D position of driver’s eyes.
  • Rubedo CVM – stand-alone depth sense and 3D perception system based on passive stereoscopic vision. The system addresses mobile robot navigation needs in outdoor environment and is capable of natural object identification and their spatial properties estimation in real-time.

We hope Rubedo sistemos will be selected for further discussion rounds with Audi and VW group.
