Modelling, Simulations, AI and AR for CAVs

For CAVs to be part of any future transport system, they need to perform under the same variety and unpredictability of circumstances that human drivers can currently manage and, in the long term, outperform humans in the driving task itself. This means that a CAVs Autonomous Driving System (ADS), the software that makes driving decision based on its interpretation of sensor inputs, needs to make the right decision for each situation it encounters.  

Using physical development and testing alone is unpractical, given the number of years and millions of miles on the road it would take to build confidence in these vehicles.

Beyond the real life testing, a high consideration needs to be given to virtual environments and simulations as a valuable complementary solution given their strengths:

  • Their versatility
  • They can safely test dangerous, uncommon or unlikely scenarios
  • They can create their own weather and climate
  • They allow for the testing of a high number of scenarios and “driven miles” in a short time.

The KTN would like to invite you to this exciting event where you can learn more about the opportunities in this area, form collaborations, discuss the future developments in the field, as well as find out how ideas and technologies from other fields can be incorporated.

Furthermore, there will be pitching opportunities for those that would like to showcase their work and approach in order to facilitate better networking opportunities. If you would like to be involved, please select this option on the registration form.

The event wants to bring together representatives of the Automotive, Modelling, Simulations, AI, Augmented Reality and Gaming worlds.

Details of the programme will be published in due course.

Not able to attend? This event is available online via webcast and there will be further regional events in Cardiff (18th Jan), Coventry (22nd Jan) and Edinburgh (25th Jan).
