The preliminary program has been released for this June’s Autonomous Vehicle Technology Conference in Stuttgart, Germany, which will feature over 120 speakers, with experts from organizations including BMW, Intel, Renault, Uber and Volvo.
The conference will feature two dedicated conference tracks – The Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Conference Track, bringing together expert speakers on the latest AV test and development technologies and practises; and the Autonomous Vehicle AI, Software and Sensor Fusion Conference Track, where experts will address the latest developments in AV AI, software and sensor fusion.
Carlo van Driesten, BMW Group, will present a paper titled, ‘Enabling Virtual Test & Validation: Creating a Virtual Proof of Validation in the ENVITED Ecosystem’; Marc Pajon, Renault Group, will present ‘Validating ADS, towards an industrial scenarios database’; and Magnus Liljeqvist, Volvo Autonomous Solutions, will present ‘Building a tool chain and an eco-system – the strategy behind creating a new company for Autonomous solutions’.
Meanwhile, Todd Medema (left), product manager, Uber ATG will present, ‘Product management for autonomous vehicles’. “Most product management resources are focused on B2C or even B2B,” comments Medema. “But what does it take to design and build internal tooling to accelerate autonomy development? I plan to cover some of the unique challenges in products built by engineers for engineers, capable of handling immense datasets and complexity, in an unsolved and ever-changing solution set.”
Jack Weast (right), senior principal engineer, Intel & VP autonomous vehicle standards, Mobileye – Intel Corporation, will present, ‘Why the safety of autonomous vehicles must be a collaborative affair’. For years, Intel and Mobileye have advocated for industry and regulatory consensus on AV safety, culminating in a forthcoming standard – IEEE 2846 – that will establish a model for AV decision making that will be formally and mathematically verifiable, technology-neutral and regionally customizable. This session will provide an overview of the safety standards landscape, how this IEEE standard initiative plays a unique role, and why it is imperative for the industry to adopt a more open, transparent and collaborative approach to deliver on the AV promise.
The conference takes place 16-18 June, alongside the Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo, in Stuttgart, Germany – the leading exhibition in Europe for advanced technologies for AV development.
