There’s talk in industry that autonomous trucking is poised to take over robotaxis as the most-widespread use of an autonomous vehicle. At the moment, there is much
investment around using these for long-haul journeys, but what is the feasibility of deploying them in urban spaces? Join this session to hear about:
• The latest industry developments in the autonomous trucking landscape, both long-haul and in urban areas. What are the challenges to driving these into wide-scale public use?
• What does autonomous trucking mean for fleet owners, and the e-commerce and retail industries?
• Is platooning a fad of the past, or will this be a necessary part of urban deployment? Looking at how platooning and connected cities are interlinked, specifically around
adaptive traffic light control and cooperative sensing.

Robert Day - Director of Autonomous Vehicles, Arm
As the industry moves closer to deploying autonomous vehicles, there are still many technology obstacles that have to be overcome. Todays
autonomous compute systems are too big, too power hungry, too hot and too expensive, and unliketraditional automotive systems, many do not adhere to the high levels of functional safety demanded in deployed automotive systems. This discussion will look at technology advances that will give the compute performance required to power autonomous driving, while reducing cost, size, power and thermals and bringing in the highest levels of functional safety.
• New technology innovation that reduces power, size and cost of high performance compute
• Introducing built-in functional safety to autonomous computing
• Development and deployment software
