Larry Burns, Former VP Research & Development at General Motors. This presentation frames possible mobility futures with a focus on driverless vehicles and offers suggestions on how to prepare for what appears to be inevitable.
The Importance of Testing and Validating (and Licensing?) Self-Driving Systems for both Routine and Problematic Scenarios
Brandon Schoettle, Project Manager, Sustainable Worldwide Transportation, University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute, discusses if we should require licensing tests and graduated licensing for self-driving vehicles, how self-driving vehicles will vary, visual performance, traffic laws and regulations, evaluating driving-related skills, GDL for self-driving vehicles, and more!
Robert Bates, Chief Safety Officer at Mentor, discusses paying close attention to both hardware and software when building security into the modern automobile. Robert speakers about consolidation on the SoC level, security and safety via separation, how the thread of attacks has been growing, what security means for IoT, a list of security requirements, and hardware security.
Jeff Hutton, Sr. Director, Automotive Business Development at Synopsys, discusses verification best practices. Jeff goes into verification challenges in today's SoC, consistent verification continuum across all verification engines, verify for functional safety. Also earlier, more efficient SW development, improve quality, reduce costs, and being ISO26262 ready.
Bodo Seifert from Magna presents on complexity in modern vehicles/problem statement, automotive SPICE, engineering 1 – engineering 3 in detail, prerequisites (ALM, traceability, gates, compliance matrix), customer requirements and quote, Project planning (Systems Engineering) and monitoring, and supporting processes.
James Fackler Assistant Administration for the Customer Services Administration, Michigan Department of State, discusses initial legislative challenges, statute changes for AV testing, looking ahead and next steps, and NHTSA/AAMVA Workgroup.
Professor William Covington, Director, Technology Law and Public Policy Clinic at the University of Washington School of Law, gives a comprehensive overview of autonomous cars from an academic perspective. He touches upon the benefits, legislation, liabilities, and other aspects regarding autonomous vehicles, and goes into the effectiveness of assistive functions.
In this presentation Adam Sherer, Product Management Group Director, Automotive Functional Safety Lead at Cadence, speaks about ISO 26262 and semiconductor verification, methods to improve verification fitness regardless of your starting point, techniques to trace results through the OEM, tier 1, tier 2, and IP chain, and automation to reduce development cost and increase quality.
Kyusuk Han of the University of Michigan, a speaker from a previous iteration of the summit, was kind enough to share this in-depth presentation about the need for in-vehicle security and a proposed protocol to help solve the major security problems.
