Tom Phillips

Autonomous Vehicles Online was Automotive IQ's first online event of the year. Over two days and nine sessions, we covered everything from the past, present and future of autonomous driving, to the latest in regulations, legal issues and more.

Over the next few weeks, we're going to be revisiting some of the sessions from the event, beginning with the opening keynote, delivered by Elpidoforos Arapantonis, solution architect at Volvo Cars.

He is based at the headquarters of Volvo Car Corporation in Gothenburg, Sweden, and has an academic background in electronics, distributed systems and information security.

He is currently working on projects concerning both Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), and Autonomous Driving (AD). Elpidoforos’ focus is on cybersecurity from active safety point of view - all of which made him a perfect choice to open the event.

Autonomous cars have received a reality check. Timescales for delivering a full, Level 5 vehicle have now been reconsidered and made more realistic, with delivery being split in two – ADAS can be expected soon, full autonomy less so.

With this in mind, what’s the outlook for 2020? Is the focus just improving ADAS, or is full autonomy still progressing at speed? And where will self-driving vehicles make their impact first?

Watch our video of the Autonomous Vehicles Online opening session to learn:

  • What are the biggest challenges in autonomous driving?
  • What are the global trends to be aware of?
  • Just how important is the arrival of autonomous driving?
  • How do you introduce autonomy in a way that consumers will accept?
