Announcing the latest additions to the AutoSens agenda, Conference Director Rob Stead confirmed three more speakers covering more of the sector’s in-demand topics:  “LiDAR is a pivotal topic for the future of ADAS and autonomous driving, and I’m delighted to have Dr Ariel Lipson representing General Motors in that session. Similarly, as the number of applications and companies involved in developing ADAS technology grows, there is an increasing need for open source software platforms and one of the leading figures in this movement, Dr Andrew Richards of Codeplay, will give the latest information and insight.”

“The human interface between ADAS and the driver also grows in importance as we aim towards level 3 automation, SoftKinetic will be represented by Co-Founder Eric Krzeslo to talk about how 3D imaging technology can deliver a high level of understanding of driver state and behaviour.”

Assessing future opportunities and challenges with LiDAR adoption for vehicle perception
