Industry-leading speakers announced for Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium 2016

Since advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) gave rise to the development of fully automated driving technologies, it has been clear that the widespread use of fully autonomous self-driving vehicles is set to become a reality on the world’s roads in the next few years.

However, the final stages of testing, validation and fail-safe approval for these vehicles pose a huge challenge to the global automotive industry. The rigorousness and thoroughness of the testing processes need to be conducted at an altogether higher level of fidelity than anything that has gone before, if the final reality is to be achieved with complete safety and integrity guaranteed.

With this in mind, the Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium 2016 will bring together the world’s leading engineers in the field of autonomous vehicle research, testing, validation and development, in what will be the most important conference of the year on autonomous vehicle development. The conference will be held in Stuttgart, Germany, alongside Automotive Testing Expo Europe 2016, the world’s largest exhibition dedicated to new vehicle development and testing, and in conjunction with Traffic Technology International magazine, the world’s leading magazine for advanced highway and traffic management technologies.

UKIP Media & Events, the publisher of Traffic Technology International magazine, will host the second annual conference exclusively dedicated to testing and validating the safety, reliability and security of autonomous vehicles and automated driving functions, which will boast over 65 of the world’s leading experts in driverless vehicle testing. The event will consist of three days of presentations across two streams, featuring many key industry-leaders, including:

  • Prof Nick Reed, academy director, TRL;
  • Austen Okonweze, head of research and development, Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles;
  • Prof Paul Newman, BP Professor of Information Engineering, University of Oxford;
  • Gerben Feddes, senior advisor intelligent mobility, RDW;
  • Igor Doric, scientific and technical manager, CARISSMA;
  • Paul Krutko, president and CEO, Ann Arbor SPARK;
  • Dr Jamie Mackenzie, research fellow, Centre for Automotive Safety Research;
  • Dr Wolfgang Herzner, senior engineer, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology.

Topics under discussion will include:

  • Public road testing
  • Virtual testing
  • Simulation
  • Traffic scenario testing
  • Embedded software testing
  • Safety and crash testing
  • Fail-safe testing
  • Cyber threat testing
