There has been a significant upsurge of activity related to road vehicle automation within the past year, notably Google’s announcement of their work on this topic, as well as vehicle development activities from several major automotive companies and actively funded public sector-sponsored projects in Europe and Japan. There is need for a broad-based update on the current state of the art and practice in road vehicle automation and consideration of future research needs. This two-day workshop convenes the world’s leaders in road vehicle automation to share the state of the practice and participate in topic-specific discussion groups to identify areas requiring further research.
