WORKSHOP:
HOW TO PREPARE FOR DEPLOYMENT OF L4 AUTOMATED VEHICLES 

18 November 2021
9:00 - 18:30 CET
3:00 am US Eastern/3:00 pm China

A lot more computerized intelligence is needed for self-driving automobiles. Who will deploy first and where, incumbent vehicle manufacturers who bet on ADAS evolution towards ADS, or large multi-national ICT corporations who have no automotive legacy and prefer a clean slate approach?

L4 automated vehicles are equipped with an autopilot to drive safely in a limited operational design domain (ODD), that is under well-defined operational conditions and circumstances. Enabling technologies mature quickly, diverse new entrants grasp business opportunities, while regulators have already put some requirements for automated driving in place. What is missing and how to get ready for the deployment of L4 Autonomous Vehicles?

The workshop offers 4 sessions to address some of the key industrial challenges to help L4 cars becoming a reality on public roads for all of us.

1. Update on recent regulatory activities and supporting standards
2. Advanced automotive sensing and other enabling technologies
3. Forward compatible vehicle architectures for safe fully automated driving.
4. Approaches for verification and validation of L4 automated vehicles to get ready for type approval and self-certification

The workshop brings together leading experts and decision makers to share state-of-the-art solutions and what is coming next. Different views from all over the globe including the US, Europe and China will foster a lively debate about commonalities and differences and the best way forward.

Why Join

Key industry leaders from Europe, the United States, and Asia will share their views. The panel discussion with the audience will open up opportunities for attendees to debate the tech, business, and regulatory challenges while figuring out how standards-related activities can help to monetize technologies and to shape markets in order to facilitate the large-scale deployment of highly automated vehicles. Researchers are encouraged to share latest research results, and innovators to come up with disruptive concepts.
