The Autonomous and BASELABS are hosting a virtual Chapter Event on Safety & Sensor Data Fusion in order to extend the Global Reference Solutions’ scope towards challenges in the field of environmental sensing and data fusion.
The topic plays a crucial role in the “sensing part” of the general “Sense->Plan ->Act” pipeline implemented in self-driving vehicles. Flaws in the sensor fusion can jeopardize the safety of the overall system responsible for the self-driving functionality. Therefore, sensor fusion solutions must be developed with the highest safety level in mind.
The Chapter Event agenda is structured as follows:
13:00 – 15:30 FOCUS I: Data fusion for SAE Level 2-4
- Fail-operational algorithmic architectures for L4: e.g., algorithmic diversity
- Overview of current standards and initiatives, e.g. ISO23150
- Gaps in current standards (interfaces, architectures)
- Safe and scalable architectures for data fusion
- Sensor setups and configurations
- Discussion on whether we should standardize an architecture for L2 data fusion?
- Fail-operational sensor setups/architectures for L4
15:30 – 16:00 BREAK
16:00-18:00 FOCUS II: Validation of data fusion systems
- Overview of current standards and initiatives, e.g. OSI, OpenDrive, OpenScenario
- Gaps in current standards
- Best practices and case studies
- Simulation as part of the validation chain
The Chapter Event on Safety & Sensor Data Fusion brings together a diverse array of technical experts:
- Robin Schubert – co-founder and managing director of BASELABS
- Carlo van Driesten – Systems Architect for Virtual Test & Validation at BMW
- Cornelius Bürkle – Research Scientist at Intel Corporation
- Marcus Obst – Head of Business Development at BASELABS
- Alexander Scheel – Sensor Fusion Engineer for Automated Driving at Bosch
- Bert Auerbach – CTO & Co-founder of FDTech GmbH
- Ronny Cohen – Director of the Sensor Fusion and Platform Research at LeddarTech
By participating in this virtual Chapter Event, you will help shape the future of “Safety & Sensor Fusion” in autonomous mobility!
