NEWS FROM AUTOPILOT

Under the title “Benefit of IoT and Big Data for Automated Driving and User Trust Challenge”, the AUTOPILOT consortium will host a lively debate at the ITS World Congress 2017 in Canada this October. The debate will address questions such as:

  • What benefits are actually expected from the IoT and Big Data to improve the safety and reliability of automated driving vehicles?
  • How can the increase of automated driving performances – gained by the use of millions of objects collecting information thanks to IoT frameworks – be evaluated?
  • How can the user’s acceptance for these technologies be assessed, including concerns about data privacy and cyber security, ensuring users will trust automated vehicles using connected objects?

Speakers will include consortium partners, as well as representatives of ITS Japan and the Canadian Automobile Association, thus providing a truly global insight into these issues.

The session will also present the AUTOPILOT large-scale pilot activities that target these issues.
