JOIN THE 2022 ZERO PROTOTYPES SUMMIT COMMUNITY!



The Japan edition of our 2022 "ZERO PROTOTYPES Summit” (ZPS) was held on Sept 22nd in Tokyo, Japan.

The North American edition of our 2022 "ZERO PROTOTYPES Summit” will be held on October 12th at VI-grade’s SimCenter in Novi, (suburban Detroit) Michigan. 

These regional events build on the highly successful ZERO PROTOTYPES Summit hosted at VI-grade’s main technical development center in Udine (Italy) in May 2022, which attracted more than 220 physical and over 700 virtual attendees

Attendees benefit from high-level technical presentations by industry-leading companies actively using VI-grade’s simulation, driving simulators and hardware-in-the-loop technology to improve and accelerate their product development processes.

As an additional bonus, attendees also have an opportunity to experience selected VI-grade’s solutions and driving simulators, with discipline-specific demos organized together with VI-grade’s technical partners.
