On a Formal Model of Safe and Scalable Self-driving Cars
Author: Shai Shalev-Shwartz, Shaked Shammah, Amnon Shashua [Mobileye]
Autonomous vehicles are already a reality
Autonomous cars represent a major innovation for the automotive industry – Yet, their potential impact is still vague with regard to timing or uptake. However, the impact autonomous vehicles could have on mobility, economy, and society as a whole will be far-reaching. It is unlikely that any on-road vehicles will drive fully autonomously in the short term, even though in some areas with controlled environments, such as mining or agriculture, autonomous vehicles are already a reality. First on-road autonomous vehicles on public roads will probably be trucks, followed by vehicles for parcel delivery and automated drones. OEMs, suppliers and other mobility innovators are currently working intensively on smart and autonomous cars for the future. On the road towards autonomous driving, many technical, infrastructural and legal challenges still need to be faced. Discuss these key issues with international experts at our 6th international conference Automated Driving next July in Dusseldorf.
The following topics will be covered in 2019
We are currently preparing the final program for you. You will soon be able to download it here.
This year’s focus topics will cover:
- Perspectives on Autonomous Driving
- AI and self-driving Cars: Hype vs. Reality
- Simulation, Valdiation & Verification of AV's
- New Mobility, Business Models & Smart last Mile Concepts
- OTA, Sensor and Perception Technology
We have listened to your needs and have added a session on simulation, validation & verification as well as some insights into new mobility solutions and las mile delivery. Also we will once again prepare an interactive world café session four you - for even better networking opportunities!
Accompanying and complementing the conference we also offer two international Workshops, taking place on July 11th at the same venue:
Book both, the conference and one of the Workshops to benefit from a discounted package price.
