CITA webinar “AUTOMATED DRIVING”Daniele D'Onofrio
The upcoming changing mobility and the challenges that come with it, especially regarding vehicle safety aspects, were at the center of the two hours virtual debate. Whereas we intended to have a face-to-face event, COVID-19 outbreak forced us into a webinar. This circumstance has allowed us to have participants and inputs from all around the world: about 90 delegates from Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and USA participated at the two sessions of the event.
The first part, composed by keynote speeches and presentations, saw the participation of Nikola Milas – Croatian Ministry of Interior, Gerhard Müller – CITA President, Matthew Baldwin – Eu Coordinator for road safety/sustainable mobility and EC Deputy Director General, Tomislav Škreblin – CVH Head of Technical Department, and Karsten Graef – authorized expert from TÜV SÜD.
Matthew Baldwin, Tom Fourier, Karsten Graef, Jungsoo Park, Víctor Salvachúa and Arne Willerslev-Legrand animated the debate in the second part of the event.
It has been argued that ADAS and autonomous driving systems may fail without being detected by vehicles’ self-diagnosis, and consequently it is necessary to analyze the risk and impact of the systems failure. To do that, since vehicle’s approval, we need the right access to system and data to identify those failures. The approval framework must ensure that vehicles can be controlled during their lifetime.
Moreover we need measures to make tampering more difficult: today’s technology will not resist the tampering attempts and cybersecurity attacks of the near future.
