Commercial Vehicles: The Real Home for High-Level Autonomy


The realization that commercial vehicles and off-road equipment – not passenger vehicles – are the logical starting point for implementing higher levels of automation is setting in. Established routes along long stretches of highway, and easily geofenced areas such as ports and construction sites, lend themselves to testing and deploying autonomous technology in a safer, more-controlled environment.

In this 60-minute Webinar from the editors of Truck & Off-Highway Engineering, experts discuss system validation and verification processes, the lessons learned from field testing of automated driving systems, and what still needs to be solved to truly reach widespread Level 4 and 5 operation in commercial-vehicle fleets.

Topics include:

  • Real-time and faster physics-based sensor simulation and validation of sensor systems for radar, LiDAR, and camera
  • Large-scale virtual cloud simulation for validation of ADAS/AV systems
  • Building a universal self-driving interface to enable autonomous trucks
  • The need for smart diagnostic features for a fail operational steering system
  • Verification and validation of smart diagnostic features
  • Managing the data: organization, data analytics, and cloud-based analysis
  • Driverless off-highway remote control use cases
