Over the past 10 years, IWPC has supported the automotive eco-system in bringing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to all vehicle models, harnessing global innovation and state of the art semiconductor techniques. As connectivity options begin to offer additional safety and service capabilities, this workshop will examine which technologies will be integrated on the road to autonomous driving and when – IEEE 802.11, 3GPP LTE, 5G?

Workshop Goals

  • Assess the present state and future trends in connectivity, active safety and highly automated driving technologies
  • Create an open forum for the global automotive connectivity community to discuss and debate advanced V2V, V2X opportunities, challenges, limitations and trade-offs
  • Develop mutual understanding and build community awareness across the global eco-system
  • Review state-of-the-art semiconductor, signal processing and technology development
