Can you imagine waving at a friend while they are seated at the back of a driverless car?
If you are like me, this would definitely trigger many questions. Can it stop if my friend wanted to give me a ride? What if it parks in the wrong place and it’s towed, would it find its way home? Those are just a few questions that we might soon be getting an answer to once autonomous vehicles(AVs) become available to the public.
What technology is needed to make these vehicles a reality? Stick around to learn this and more about AVs.
In the episode, Conor Peick is joined by two guests from Siemens Digital Industries Software - Nand Kochhar, VP of Automotive and Transportation Industries, and Matthieu Worm, Director of Autonomous Vehicles. These are two experts that have closely followed the EVs' and AVs' development journey. They’ll talk to us about the progress that has been made in AV development, the current limitations, and what it’ll take to achieve level five autonomy.
Some Questions I Ask:
- Has consumer demand for AVs been affected by the pandemic? (05:47)
- What does it take to increase the level of automation in vehicles? (11:26)
- What do you see as the technical limitations to making AVs a reality? (16:50)
- How do you see AV regulations evolving in the coming years and what role can the AV industry play in the creation of those regulations? (30:38)
- What do you see, at least initially is the most plausible scenario for deploying autonomous vehicles at scale? (36:14)
What You’ll Learn in this Episode:
- The impact of the pandemic on the automotive manufacturing industry (01:15)
- How the three key parts - sense, think and act - make AV possible (03:04)
- The different levels of autonomy (08:36)
- How to achieve continuous integration and continuous deployment in the vehicle development process (14:26)
- What is driving partnerships in AV development (21:28)
- The issues that AVs can help solve (38:39)
