About the Automotive Sensors & Electronic Event

Automated, Self-Driving, or Autonomous? Driverless or Connected Cars: What's the Difference? There are six levels of ADAS technology:

  • Level 0 - Human driver does everything.
  • Level 1 - Automated systems on the vehicle can sometimes assist the human driver in conducting some parts of driving tasks.
  • Level 2 - Automated systems on the vehicle can conduct some parts of the driving task while the human continues to monitor the driving environment and performs the rest of the driving functions.
  • Level 3 - Automated systems can both conduct some parts of the driving task and monitor the driving environment in some instances. Still, the human driver must be ready to take back control when the automated system requests.
  • Level 4 - Automated systems can conduct the driving task and monitor the driving environment. The human need not take back control, but the automated system can operate only in specific environments and under certain conditions.
  • Level 5 - The automated system can perform all driving tasks under all conditions that a human driver could perform.

Currently, the state of AD is Level 2. A safe and highly automated driving experience is created through an efficient combination mix of technologies: 

  • LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) 
  •  RADAR (Radio Detection And Ranging) 
  •  CAMERA 
  •  V2X (vehicle-to-everything) communication 
  •  Vision-based alternative systems

Advanced driving Level 2 & 3 require enhanced safety systems that provide features such as 

  • automated cruise control (ACC)
  • automated emergency braking (AEB)
  • lane-keeping assist (LKAS)
  • blind-spot detection (BSD)

What's the future of ADAS vehicles, and how to achieve automated driving L3 by 2025?

With the key players in the industry, we will look closer at the autonomous, connected trends that matter to step from a basic driver assistance system to fully autonomous driving:  

  • Sensor technologies will continue advancements in robustness, accuracy, reliability, and sophistication.
  • Driver assistance technology will be enhancing the automotive experience.
  • Ultrasonic, radar, LIDAR, and optical sensors, developed at unprecedented speed, will be providing a more comprehensive view of a vehicle's surroundings.
  • Engineers will continue facing a race to achieve robust, reliable, and safe sensor fusion.
  • Driving will continue a move from human drivers and towards computers, enabling a safer and comfortable driving experience
  • The transition from ADAS systems to fully autonomous vehicles will be provided by 
    • combination of sensor technology 
    • connected vehicles 
  • As ADAS and connectivity features interact, vehicles will be learning to communicate with each other, making it easier to navigate roads, lowering driver stress.
  • Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning, connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT), and autonomous controls technologies will be more widely deployed, making cars 'smarter'.
  • It will become more challenging to ensure that intelligent autonomous cars are safe and secure.

While the future of autonomous vehicles is promising and exciting, and new ADAS technologies continue enabling higher levels of autonomy, As Level 5 driverless vehicle autonomy is still down the road, the number and sophistication of sensors and electronics will be increasing.

Join the experts at the 6th Automotive Sensors & Electronics Online Summit on 28 -29 April 2021, which follows the recently held LIDAR, Radar and Camera Online Summit on 17 -18 February 2021, and:

  • analyze use cases and applications for ADAS/AD sensors
  • present advanced developments and identify potential partnerships around sensor and electronics
  • explore novel sensing and perception systems, enabling self-driving car, and the corresponding future expectations 

See you virtually at #VLautoSE in April 2021.
