After the main conference in September 2019, The Autonomous together with TTTech Auto hosted the first of four Chapter Events to facilitate discussions among experts to work towards a Global Safety Reference for safe autonomous mobility.

More than 170 experts joined the online live session and made the first virtual The Autonomous Chapter Event a big success. Due to COVID-19, the circumstances were difficult: we re-arranged our workshop set-up and designed a fully virtual Chapter Event.

Six international experts shared their presentations on architecting fail-operational and fail-degraded AD systems and requirements for safe trajectories with the viewers. A big thank you to:

  • Riccardo Mariani (Vice President of Industry Safety, NVIDIA)
  • Simon Fürst (Principal Expert Autonomous Driving Technologies, BMW Group)
  • Martin Törngren (Professor in Embedded Control Systems, KTH Royal Institute of Technology)
  • Jack Weast (Senior Principal Engineer, Intel & Vice President for Automated Vehicle Standards, Mobileye)
  • Wilfried Steiner (Corporate Scientist & Director TTTech Labs, TTTech Computertechnik AG)
  • and Phil Koopman (Co-Founder, Edge Case Research & Principal Technical Contributor UL 4600)

The topics that were covered:

  1. Conduct a concretization work on safe architectures for automated driving
  2. Requirements for safe trajectories

Thanks to the great effort of team and speakers alike, the first The Autonomous Chapter Event was a big success.
