The conference will combine detailed technical workshops, the AutoSens Awards, and with two days of high level technical discussion in the conference.
Day One: 18 Sept – IEEE Official Meeting
Day Two: 19 Sept – Five technical 3-hour Workshops and Autonomous Vehicle Technology Demos
Workshops are as follows…
- The Role of AI for Autonomous Vehicles
Led by Dominique Bonte, Managing Director, ABI Research
- Enabling heterogeneous systems with open standards for ADAS
Led by Duncan McBain, Staff Software Engineer, Codeplay Software and Rod Burns, Developer Relations Manager, Codeplay Software
- Vehicle Cybersecurity Lessons from and for the Automotive Industry
Led by Alexandra Heckler and Faye Francy from AUTO-ISAC
- Understanding the image colour pipeline for automotive applications
Led by Prof Albert Theuwissen, Founder, Harvest Imaging
- Human Factors in Designing Self Driving Vehicles – The System Will Always Work How You Design It
Led by Sheldon Russell, Senior Research Associate, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute
You can add workshops to your conference registration when you purchase your conference ticket. Please note an additional charge applies.
Several fully autonomous vehicles, featuring an array of sensors, processors and software will be running demonstrations at AutoSens Brussels (Parc du Cinquantenaire at AutoWorld), as well as brief technical overviews by their owners/developers.
Visitors and press are invited to see first-hand what the latest technology can do and talk to the engineers developing the full vehicle systems. In this intimate venue dedicated to hosting AutoSens, attendees have time to get up close and hands-on with the vehicles to learn about how they operate.
Time: 10.00am – 6.00pm
Location: AutoWorld, Brussels
Welcome Drinks Reception in the main Exhibition Zone for all conference attendees
Day Three: 20 Sept – Conference Day 1 and AutoSens Awards
- Over 60 presentations over 2 days in three tracks
- Panel discussions
- Extensive networking sessions
- Technology exhibition with over 30 displays
- Classic, sports and exotic car display
- Rotation 1 at 16:15 – 16:50
- Rotation 2 at 16:55 – 17:30
LiDAR data processing: Edge computing or centralized ECU architecture?
Led by Dibotics
LiDAR sensors are already enabling an unprecedented amount of 3D data being gathered in real-time. The new generations of LiDAR sensors are going to deliver millions of points per second, which is an opportunity for advanced perception but also a challenge from the calculation power, bandwidth and energy consumption point of view. What are the advantages and inconveniences of processing this data in the sensor itself? Is a centralized architecture a better choice?
What is the most reliable and accurate localisation technology for self-driving vehicles?
Led by 2getthere
A discussion of a magnet measurement system, MMS, the working principle of magnet based navigation and whether this is a benchmark for other localisation methods.
Led by AUTO-ISAC
Autonomous vehicles are going to save lives, and cybersecurity is a fundamental need to protect the safety, quality, and reliability of this new vehicle technology.
- How real are cyber threats today?
- How does the risk landscape change with the deployment of autonomous vehicles?
- What industry-wide efforts are underway? How can individual companies tackle this challenge?
From simulation to reality: how far can we take it?
Led by Professor Alexander Braun
Discussion of simulation requirements, status and outlook. Though simulation will most likely never replace 100% of real-world test drives, let’s discuss how far we can take it towards the best near-to perfect simulation.
Time: 7.15pm – 11.30pm
Location: Atomium, Brussels
Day Four: 21 Sept – Conference Day 2
The proceedings will close with a second day of conference content featuring the world’s most renowned technical experts covering the latest essential topics in vehicle perception technology.
