Connected & Autonomous Vehicles
Mapping An Autonomous World

Autonomous vehicles require highly accurate, up-to-date maps for a safe and smooth driving experience. Explore how AVs can access real-time maps with minimal latency.

  • Grid modelling, feature mapping, HD mapping; evaluate the attributes of the latest mapping solutions to focus in on the technology that meets your mapping needs
  • Enhance interoperability between sensor data and mapping through heightened in-vehicle computation to create the required data for Simultaneous Localization and Mapping

Analyze how to deliver the highly accurate, up-to-date maps needed for autonomy - accessible with minimal latency - through e.g. fast-cycle HD mapping systems

12:00pm - 12:40pm 40 mins

Panel discussion: Invest in Success! The VC View of AV Innovation
  • Dennis Liu - Associate Director – Global Strategy & Business Development, Ford Motor Company
  • Anil Rachakonda - Director, Co-pace Startup Program, Continental Corporation
  • Anselm Adams - Co-Founder & CEO, Albora Technologies

The increasing appetite to invest in “sexy” auto tech start-ups raises questions about how to really value these disruptive technologies. Will they live up to the hype?

  • Understand where investors are looking over the next 6-12 months to make a profit in the next 5-10 years
  • Assess the role start-ups should play in your CV/AV strategy e.g. filling a gap or bringing new resources to the table
  • Identify the hurdles to working with start-ups - from how to invest to operating models to points of integration - to put together an informed strategy

The Global Nature of Autonomous Driving Innovation

Autonomous driving has received much attention globally. Here we explore how innovation globally will impact the nature of autonomous driving.

  • Get to grips with China’s push for global leadership in autonomous driving technology
  • Grapple with a variety of autonomous driving applications based on local market needs in Japan, South America and elsewhere
  • Delve into the role of regulation in adoption of autonomous driving and how nations with lower regulatory hurdles could accelerate adoption
2:00pm - 2:20pm 20 mins

Blockchain: From Hype to Application

Long before the widespread arrival of level 5 autonomy, vehicles will begin autonomously sharing data and transacting with other vehicles and infrastructure.

  • Understand how a secure, immutable identity is a prerequisite for participating in the ‘Economy of Things’ and why Blockchains, distributed ledgers and related technologies are leading contenders for managing vehicle identity and facilitating V2X transactions.

  • Use Blockchain’s decentralization properties: How does a network of nodes open up to third parties & new services. What are the benefits of running in total decentralized ways?

  • Understand remaining challenges with decentralization, incl. scaling, that blockchain networks have to deal with

Putting AV Tech to the Test

Public road testing, virtual testing, simulation, embedded software testing, safety and crash testing…. There are now a multitude of test bases for ADAS and self-driving vehicle platforms.

• Explore the differences between validation of autonomous vehicles and validation of ADAS systems.

• Discuss the challenge in testing the sheer number of possible scenarios that an autonomous vehicle could face. Learn advantages of possible solutions incl. applying AI to testing

• Consider how data collected from test cars and digital simulation can be applied in the design process. Debate the need for a technical data consortium to share anonymized test data

2:40pm - 3:00pm 20 mins
Connected & Autonomous Vehicles
Voice & AI: Offering the Personalized User Experience

The era of voice has finally taken off in the car, largely helped by the proliferation of consumer brand AI-powered digital assistants. Deliver a contextual, personalized auto grade assistant

  • Discover how AI powered solutions enable a more human-like interaction with vehicles as consumers start to opt for voice over touch screen in the home
  • Plot use cases where voice makes sense and those it doesn’t work for. Identify where multiple HMI modalities are needed & can be integrated, incl. gaze & touch
  • Consider the specific requirements & skills for a digital co-driver, incl. less reliability on constant cloud connectivity & understanding driving situations and complex commands

Connectivity - A Network of Networks – 5G, DSRC & CV2X
  • Moderator Scott Belcher - President, SFB Consulting
  • Steve London - Senior Manager, Business Development, Global Connected Consumer, General Motors

With ever increasing demand on connectivity, the burden must now fall on the spectrums to provide the constant connectivity the consumer demands.

  • Some OEM’s embrace 5G, others DSRC. Which of these technologies will prevail? Understand the merits of these spectrums and implications on your product strategy
  • Explore the costs, coverage and rollout implications of 5G vs DSRC and debate whether the technology reached a point where policymakers can proceed with one over another
