Smart, Safe & Trustworthy Transportation
Driving innovation while addressing critical issues on data security, privacy, identity and trust.

SMART, SAFE & TRUSTWORTHY TRANSPORATION

Future vehicles will be more and more connected, automated, and smart due to computerization and software embedded intelligence. While vehicle manufacturers drive the evolution of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) toward fully automated cars, the ICT sector’s aspiration is to leapfrog autonomous driving. Stakeholders from both industries in the converging mobility ecosystem have to work together to build trust in autonomous vehicles by ensuring safety, security, and more.

Build Trust in Autonomous Vehicles

  • Enabling technologies for highly automated driving include sensors and sensor fusion, connectivity (intra-vehicle, V2x), high definition maps, and various AI techniques for different purposes including object recognition, path planning, and decision making.
  • An autonomous vehicle is not trustworthy without being safe. However, trustworthiness implies reliability, availability, resilience, etc. Additional safety risks due to AI blackbox embedded functionality must be mitigated. Safety must be secured.

Data Driven Automotive Engineering

  • ADAS development and validation of highly automated vehicles are two challenging data intensive engineering processes. Huge amounts of data need to be managed and governed, in particular for machine learning.
  • Testing, verification, and validation of autonomous vehicles are a challenge. Standardized solutions are required as the foundation for homologation and type approval.

Vehicle Architecture Evolution and Automotive Platform Business

  • Future vehicle architectures will be shaped by ICT technologies. It is expected that TSN/automotive Ethernet will serve as a communication backbone, with more and more sensors and a more centralized computing platform attached.
  • Autonomous vehicles will generate and consume an ever-increasing abundance of data. Exchanging and sharing data is the basis to leverage intelligence hidden in data. New business models will be implemented by monetizing data.
  • An e2e data infrastructure will integrate vehicle platforms and platform businesses offering a multitude of B2B and B2C services.

 

 

 

Ethernet & IP @ Automotive Technology Week
E&IP@ATD is the premier venue for automobile manufacturers, suppliers, semiconductor vendors, tool providers, engineers, scientists, educators, and the media to share groundbreaking ideas along with implementation strategies and applications related to automotive Ethernet systems. 

Assessment of Standardization Gaps for Safe Automated Driving
ICT drives the evolution of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADASs). It enables higher levels of automated driving and ultimately fully autonomous vehicles (AVs). AVs of the future will allow broader mobility offers including end-to-end Mobility as a Service (MaaS). They will incorporate the latest ICT technologies like TSN/Ethernet, wireless communication, high definition maps, sensing, and various machine learning (ML) techniques to implement novel functions and features. 

IEEE SA—Nurturing the Era of End-to-End Mobility as a Service (MaaS): Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation
There is a shift from individually owned vehicles toward interconnected shared mobility solutions, used as an if-and-when needed service [Mobility as a Service (MaaS)]. Drivers will be operators and eventually passengers. Autonomous vehicles will open up many more currently unknown opportunities for end-to-end MaaS. The digital transformation of transportation is a cross-sector challenge. While vehicle manufacturers drive the evolution of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) toward fully automated cars, the ICT sector’s aspiration is to leapfrog autonomous driving. A broad, open, cross-industry dialogue is needed to exchange views, to debate, and to agree upon common challenges and collaborative activities.

Nurturing The Era of Mobility as a Service (MaaS): Standards for Connected and Autonomous Transportation Workshop 2019
Mobility as a Service (MaaS) describes a shift from individually owned vehicles toward interconnected mobility solutions used on an if-and-when needed service. Autonomous vehicles will open up currently unknown opportunities for e2e MaaS. The car or ship as a stand-alone product will be replaced by a system of vehicles, infrastructure, and service provider platforms co-existing in complex interaction. Such a mobility ecosystem will need adequate standards to help enable the smooth integration of its constituents.
