Automated Driving webinar by CITA
The upcoming changing mobility and the challenges that come with it, especially regarding vehicle safety aspects, were at the centre of the two hours virtual debate.
Considering the safety aspects of ADAS (Advanced driver-assistance systems) technology and autonomous vehicles, the question of what aspects should we take into consideration when autonomous driving systems coexist with conventional vehicles was raised. It has been argued that ADAS and autonomous driving systems may fail without being detected by vehicles’ self-diagnosis, and consequently it is necessary to analyse the risk and impact of the systems failure.
To make the ADAS technology and autonomous driving more safer, modernisation of vehicle inspections should be implemented. Also, OEM’s (original equipment manufacturer) and companies must implement testing methods at every stage of development before releasing into market. In order to achieve this, we need the access to system and data to identify those failures. The regulatory framework must ensure vehicles can be controlled throughout their lifetime and ensure necessary measures are placed to make tampering more difficult as today’s technology will not resist tampering attempts and cyber-security attacks of the near future.
