Introduction

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems or vehicle-based intelligent safety systems are currently in a phase of transition from Level 2 Active Safety systems, where the human driver monitors the driving environment towards level 3, 4 and higher, where the automated driving system monitors the driving environment. Many technical questions remain to be answered or until now, are perhaps unknown. Considering perception optimisation for camera, radar, lidar as well as connectivity to and from data centers for scenario and behaviour detection. This workshop will consider how the industry transitions from trials and test beds to embedded solutions and volume deployment.

Workshop Goals

  • What are the next steps within the evolution of driver assistance towards autonomous driving?
  • What are the challenges moving from level 3 to level 4 and beyond?
  • What part will machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data play?
  • How can simulation and validation systems help drive advanced safety systems into production?
