Automated Driving and Road Safety – a Contradiction?

19 November, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The International Motor Vehicle Inspection Committee (CITA) and the German Association of Technical Inspection Agencies (VdTÜV) warmly invites you to a dinner debate in Brussels (82 Rue d’Arlon) on Moday 19 November 2018 at 17.30.


During the event, we will discuss changes through highly automated driving (HAD), the opportunities to improve road safety and the challenges for the testing and certification of autonomous vehicles and components in order to make them safe and secure during the complete life cycle.

The development of automated driving systems will progress quickly in the coming years. While technological innovation promises a number of benefits regarding safety and the reduction of road fatalities, it is also necessary to minimize the upcoming risks of these new technologies and to guarantee a practical and feasible transition towards the new forms of mobility.

The following questions will be discussed:

  1. What are the new risks associated with HAD and how can we minimize them?
  2. What are the needed changes in regulatory requirements with regards to homologation and periodical testing (increasing relevance of software and simulation) in order to make the new technology safe and secure?
  3. How important are the increasing data collected in the vehicle for road safety (e.g. for e-homologation) and how can we protect data transfers against cyber-attacks (e.g. with a trusted data center)?
  4. How can we guarantee the functionality of advanced assistance systems in vehicles during their life cycle in order to maintain their effect on safe road transport?
  5. How will the increasing power of tier suppliers due to deep technological knowledge and a shift to construction in modules, change the car industry?

If you would like participate at the event, please send us an email to secretariat@citainsp.org before Wednesday 14 November 2018.
