T3e Webinar - Are Autonomous Vehicles Safe? Understanding What’s Already Here and What Needs to Happ
Updated: Jan 3
The seminar will cover recently concluded and ongoing projects related to safety and regulatory concerns for the expanding market of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). The work presented has been conducted within the past year at the RiSA2S Research Center of San José State University, a multi-disciplinary innovation center for the Risk and Safety Assessment of Autonomous Systems. The activities of the lab are aimed at improving safety and better informing regulatory agencies in their recommendations for the certification process of autonomous systems. In particular, the seminar will delve into three topics of current interest:
An analysis of current AV accident statistics based on the data provided by the California Department of Motor Vehicles;
An examination of triggers and contributory factors of disengagements of the autonomous technology that controls the car; and
An overview of current issues related to driver’s reactions to disengagements when collaboration is expected (e.g., Level 2 and 3 AVs) and presentation of ongoing human-in-the-loop study.
Date: Tuesday, February 6, 2018 Time: 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM EST Cost: All T3e webinars are free of charge PDH: 1.0 View PDH Policy
Anyone interested in AVs Technology will enjoy the seminar. The material presented is also suitable for audiences that do not have a previous technical background in AVs (e.g., undergraduate students in higher education institutions and professionals looking to enter the AV field for the first time). At the same time, professionals that are working in the field will appreciate the different strands presented in relation to this most current AVs research.
T3 Webinar Basics
