Workshop on Connected, Cooperative & Automated Driving
9 June 2019 (Paris, France)
Joint workshops CAD & C-ITSec
The 3rd Workshop on “Connected, Cooperative, and Autonomous Driving” was held on Sunday 9 June 2019, in conjunction with the IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV 2019). The workshop also featured an Industry Panel with experts from related industries, which again fostered the interactive exchange of academia and industry.
Workshop venue: MINES ParisTech – 60 Boulevard Saint-Michel, 75006 Paris, France.
Recent developments in telecommunications, sensor, information processing and control technologies have enabled substantial progress in the domain of ITS. C-ITS is in a very early stage of deployment, as it is technologically achievable, but the deployment requires cooperation of multiple stakeholders. Automated driving is on the horizon and will still need substantial and longer-term development and testing to make even the high automation levels a reality in complex situations, such as in urban environments, and in a transit period of only partial market penetration. Cooperative and automated transport are certainly complementary. They are expected to bring substantial benefits in terms of safety, comfort and (traffic and fuel) efficiency. Many challenges exist in this important domain.
The workshop targeted the challenges for C-ITS applications, especially connected and cooperative systems towards automated driving. Competing communication technologies (e.g., peer to peer (IEEE 802.11p), cellular network, and future 5G), sensor, information processing and control technologies were highlighted. The impacts of (C-)ITS applications were analysed. Requirements for strong cooperation between industry, authorities, and academia in different regions were addressed.
The workshop was very interactive. Participants had an excellent opportunity to discuss with and to challenge distinguished speakers and panellists.
In addition, we also held a Mentimeter survey among the audence, for which you can find the results here.
