Workshop on

Driver- and Driverless Cars: Competition or Coexistence?

DDC 2017

Abstract

Driverless (autonomous) cars rely heavily on advanced and highly dependable computational platforms. While they already hit the road, and are generally successful, we’re not fully sure what their long-term impact would be. The rapid progress in technology, and the fast adoption by large businesses like Google and Uber helped mitigate several aspects of their complex universe, but provide little knowledge about their future alongside traditional cars. This workshop aims to help capture and analyze the intricate dynamics of this new technology on several fronts. We discuss the future of autonomous cars and if they will eventually replace driver-cars, or will coexist with them in a symbiotic relationship.

The topics of this workshop include but are not limited to the following

  • The maturity of today’s autonomous car technology and its safety and trustworthiness
  • The remaining technological challenges (night driving, snow and sleet, etc.)
  • Mass production of autonomous cars
  • Autonomous car as a service (Uber, trucking, etc.)
  • Future technologies of driver cars (ADAS…)
  • Social aspects of future car (driver and driverless)
  • The future of sports cars, and racecars
  • Infrastructure readiness and IoT
  • V2V and V2I protocols and their future roles
  • Government enforced technologies (vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-infrastructure protocols…)
