FNC 2022 SESSION 3: Automated Driving Systems for Consumer and Other Vehicles (Trucks, Delivery, Shuttles, Robotaxis, Etc.)
The past year saw a reassessment of automated driving with the conclusion that achieving full autonomy would take longer than originally anticipated. Research and progress are nevertheless advancing. Key to understanding the pace and path of AV adoption is better understanding individual use cases. This panel will review emerging AV applications – commercial vehicles, delivery drones and vans, shuttles, robotaxis – to better understand the challenges and opportunities associated with AV technology and the state of development and market adoption.Last year, the symposium’s first session included presentations about the activities of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) related to automated driving systems, over-the-air software updates, and cybersecurity management.
One of the highlights of 2021 was the adoption in February of the revised UNECE Roadmap on ITS. The first session of this years’ symposium will explore the achievements of the Intelligent Transport Systems sectors and the views of regulators and policy makers.
