On-Board Diagnostics Symposium-Americas

September 17-19, 2024 | Garden Grove, California

The American Symposium for Emissions Standards and Regulation Efforts

For more than 30 years, On-Board Diagnostics Symposium-Americas (OBD-Americas) has brought together leaders in powertrain diagnostics from the light and heavy-duty automotive industry, and the commercial vehicle on- and off-road industry to discuss relevant and timely technical topics that directly influence ground vehicle emissions reduction efforts.

As the industry’s relied upon resource, OBD-Americas is the annual forum where forward-thinking engineers, executives, OEMs, suppliers, academics, government officials and regulators unite to work through challenges together. You will benefit from the industry expertise and leadership on key topics in on-board diagnostics, including:

  • Updates on current and proposed rulemaking directly from regulatory entities from around the world
  • Strategies being employed to ensure powertrains meet current and upcoming global regulations in North America, Europe, and China
  • The most up-to-date global standards development initiatives
  • The latest on diagnostic regulations relating to electric vehicles and fuel cells
  • Upcoming industry trends
  • Information on OBD systems development
  • SAE standards associated with light- and heavy-duty emissions controls
  • 1699-5 software
  • Much more!

At the OBD Symposium, you participate in discussions with both industry professionals involved in designing OBD systems and government officials involved in developing OBD regulations and certifying OBD systems. This provides insight as to what works – and as appropriate – compliant, making for a valuable experience.
