Discuss, share ideas, network – ASTech offers new platform
Gaimersheim – Under the motto “Talk-Meet-Eat”, a new presentation format was launched on Wednesday, September 11, 2019. More than 60 ASTech employees from various departments in Gaimersheim and Wolfsburg responded to the invitation and attended the presentation from two external experts either in person or via ViKo. In response to an initiative by UKM, Anna Lohmann and Christian Haagen, both lawyers at the University of Würzburg RobotRecht Research Facility, which is led by renowned professor Dr. Dr. Eric Hilgendorf, visited ASTech to discuss the interesting and ongoing issue of “Can an automobile be held responsible for a death?” Using various concrete scenarios, the experts shed light on the issue of liability in penal or civil cases when driver assistance systems cause (fatal) accidents.
Even before the presentation was concluded, several questions were raised and comments originated from the podium. By the time the presentation ended however, there was no holding back. One question after another was thrown at the two speakers, and as everyone had hoped, this led to a lively and active dialogue format.
Many of the participants stayed after the “official” presentation and with a large order of pizzas, used the opportunity to discuss various topics with one another, network and enjoy an evening meal together (Meet-Eat), thus ensuring that the premier of the new ASTech presentation series was a huge success
Special thanks go out to both of the presenters, who responded to the call from ASTech and made the extra trip from Würzburg to Gaimersheim, plus a shout out to all of the ASTech employees who worked in the background to set up and break down everything and arrange the audio-visual technology. As planned, it was an event by and for ASTech employees, thus leading to an exciting, yet relaxing Wednesday evening. #WeAreASTech #WorkingATASTech #WeTogether
