Forum 360: Autonomous Operation in an Evolving Ecosystem 20 June 2019 0930 - 1130


Autonomy is becoming ubiquitous in our modern world, but are we really moving the needle to integrate autonomous vehicle operation in our human piloted-world? Acceptance at each higher level of autonomy will not be the same. Verification and validation, testing, and ultimately certification for autonomous systems and complete vehicles will not be a single solution, but more likely a case-by-case solution. Panelists will explore how can we define and create a relationship among all stakeholders for autonomous technology to develop and operate seamlessly with or without humans in the loop.
