As the autonomous vehicle movement gains momentum, sense technologies are playing an integral role in enabling Advance Drive Assistance System (ADAS) features - the building blocks to autonomous driving capabilities. As sensors like LiDAR, Radar, and Cameras become more cost-effective, vehicle OEMs are offering more ADAS features to the market. Panelists during the workshop will also discuss advances in machine learning & software solutions and trends among processing, CPUs and analysis. Attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to win a RearVision – the only automotive backup camera and intelligent alert system from Pearl Automation Inc.

According to Tu, “Vehicle OEMS have pledged huge investments and triggered M&A activities around the autonomous vehicle movement. Catapulted by this momentum, our workshop was designed to educate attendees on the shift in traditional automotive electronics and move toward high-performance computer platforms, designed to fuse data from an array of vehicle sense elements as well as data from V2X sources. Our content rich agenda and dynamic speakers will offer attendees a detailed look into the key trends and technologies impacting this market today and how to effectively integrate sense technologies into the autonomous vehicles of the future.”
