While the mobility industry continues to invest in the research and development of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs), it also realizes that a great deal of testing and validation is needed to ensure optimal safety. The time is now to establish standards, share best practices, and propel this technology into the next generation
A new event, hosted by Clemson University–International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR), will bring together key thought leaders from academia, research, industry, and government throughout the automotive engineering industry to discuss the latest automated vehicle testing programs, data acquisition and analytics approaches, and research that will inevitably drive the industry forward to a fully connected and automated vehicle.
Over two days, technical experts will discuss ideas and methods to bridge the gap between technologies and products to address the top challenges of automated vehicle use within the public transportation system. This event will dive deeper to address the underlying engineering frameworks, showcase the engineering challenges, discuss systematic choices and down-selection processes, and the comparative analyses needed to create reliable engineered products.
By going beyond a set of general presentations into an applications-based discussion of reference-architectures, design- and implementation-choices, detailed/statistical test-results analyses, this event can establish priorities for solving problems and creating work groups to solve them.
