Reasons to attend

Since the presentation to the IET about a self driving vehicle by TRW Conekt in Solihull some ten years ago there have been significant changes in the technology.

Safety has always been a vital consideration in the systems used to control the vehicle.
However there have been incidents where the automatic control of the vehicle has failed.

How does one test these vehicles to ensure maximum safety? This presentation outlines the current state of the art for ensuring safety to passengers, pedestrians, etc.
