Nurturing the Era of E2E Mobility as a Service
Highly automated cars will be smart due to computerization and software embedded intelligence. They will communicate with each other and the infrastructure, sense and landscape the surrounding, and maneuver in an ever more changing environment according to their capabilities. Drivers will be operators and eventually passengers. Future self-driving vehicles will open up new opportunities for e2e-Mobility as a Service (MaaS).
In order to be widely accepted and adopted autonomous vehicles have to be trustworthy, i.e. they have to be safe, secure, reliable, resilient and more. What constitutes trustworthiness depending on circumstances and purpose is not a given in a straight forward manner. Safety has to be secured for connected cars, in particular when they also sense the environment. The risk related to black box AI embedded functionality must be limited, and there are more dependencies to be carefully traded off.
