- How will consumers decide if they should give up their own cars?
- How many AVs can we expect, in which usage, at which cost?
- What does this mean for the various (potential) players?
Berylls Strategy Advisors
12:00 pm - 12:45 pm SHARING AND AUTOMATION: TRANSFORMING MOBILITYSusan Shaheen, Co-Director, Transportation Sustainability Research Center,UC-Berkeley
12:00 pm - 12:45 pm THE AUTONOMOUS CAR ELECTRONICS DOMAIN – AN EXERCISE IN CONSOLIDATION
The compute power and software complexity required for autonomous driving is pushing boundaries not seen before. How do we get this under control and ready for production?
• Identify proven and effective ways to safely and securely consolidate “mixed-criticality” autonomous system services without compromising safety and security
• Consider how these consolidation techniques can be effectively utilized on next generation high performance multicore automotive processors
• Understand the challenges of moving from proof of concept to purpose-build production ready autonomous vehicle electronics when considering DOT’s new “Vision for Safety”
12:45 pm - 1:45 pm LUNCH
1:45 pm - 2:30 pm DEEP LEARNING: SHOULD ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE BE EMULATING HUMANS?Tim Wong, Director of Technical Program Management for Autonomous Vehicles,NVIDIA
- How artificial intelligence should be programmed
- Is it sucient to employ end-to-end learning using cameras that watch people drive and then put it through the deep neural net, or are AI systems are fatally flawed because human behavior causes accidents
- Should OEMs be focusing on an integrated approach?
- Expert systems as well as cameras, an algorithm that you combine
Tim WongDirector of Technical Program Management for Autonomous Vehicles
1:45 pm - 2:30 pm SIMULATION AND SAFE SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE: MAKING AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES SAFESandeep Sovani, Director of Global Automotive Industry,ANSYS
• Accelerating development by simulating millions of driving scenarios
• Making simulations trustworthy through accurate sensor models
• Developing safe software architectures to control unpredictability of Machine Learning algorithms
• Ensuring reliability of safety critical sensors and electronics hardware
Sandeep SovaniDirector of Global Automotive Industry
