Scope and Goals

Next generation cars will be highly or fully automated on regular roads. This could greatly improve the driving comfort and, more importantly, the road safety, thereby potentially saving over a million lives each year. In the last decade, various automated driving systems have been developed and implemented in the real world, which commonly rely on specialized and expensive sensors, such as high-precision GPS and digital maps, high-resolution laser scanners, etc. However, the high cost of such systems prevents their benefits to normal contemporary cars. Whereas, this workshop is focused on highlighting R&D advances for automated driving with more realistic configurations, ranging from software development to hardware design in the real world and the cyber world. We also welcome contributions from academic researchers and governmental organizations, national research labs, etc.
