FAST zero '25


Dear Colleagues

The Accident Mechanisms Laboratory of Gustave Eiffel University, located in Salon-de-Provence, will organize the eighth edition of the FAST-zero Symposium (International Symposium on Future Active Safety Technology toward Zero Accidents) in September/October 2025 probably in Arles or Aix-en-Provence.

The biennial conference cycle FAST-zero was created in 2011 at the initiative of 3 Japanese academics (Professors Nagai, Furukawa and Doi) and takes place in odd years alternating with the AVEC (Advanced Vehicle Control) Conferences. FAST-zero was held in Japan in 2011, 2013, 2017 and 2023, in Sweden in 2015, in the USA in 2019 (virtual in 2021), the organizers are therefore in favor of a return to Europe in 2025.

This Conference historically brings together around 200 participants and around a hundred papers are presented. Therefore 700 papers on Active Safety were already published since the creation of this Conference. The participation of Japanese academics and industrials is significant, even when FAST-zero was held outside Japan. The Conference generally takes place over 3 days and can be supplemented by technical visits and/or demonstrations. It is organized in close collaboration with its Japanese creators and with support from the JSAE (Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan). The topics in hand cover all the fields of active safety and are listed at the end of this letter.

With my best regards
