Agenda Day 2

Start of Main Conference Day Two

6:00 am - 8:00 am LAST-MILE RUN

Get the blood pumping! Who needs autonomous shuttles for first mile/ last mile solutions when you can run it yourself? Day 1 we had our first mile together, and now we have our last. Led by a member of our team, join us for a morning jog before refreshing registration and breakfast.

TRACK SESSIONS

SYSTEMS JOURNEY

10:45 am - 11:15 am DEVELOPING A PLATFORM FOR AUTONOMOUS DRIVING VALIDATION
Robert McGinnis - Senior Account Manager, Mechanical Simulation
Matthew Cragun - Product Manager, NVIDIA Corporation
Inches and millimeters matter. Regardless of the length and number of scenarios OEMs require to test their autonomous driving technologies, it is critical for the entire simulation toolchain to be scalable, repeatable, and validated. This discussion will focus on:
• The value of a trusted vehicle dynamics model coupled to a scalable hardware/software simulation suite
• Providing stakeholders with configurable levels of fidelity throughout the tool chain
• Techniques for generating comprehensive scenarios and automation tools that can execute
and evaluate millions of scenarios

Ruijie (RJ) He - Vice President of Engineering, Optimus Ride
The self-driving industry, has successfully deployed autonomous vehicles in various environments, albeit mostly with safety drivers behind the wheel. As we seek to realize the fully-driverless future, how should we think about sensor fusion requirements and testing? Join this session to:
• Understand the types of sensor fusion related failure modes that driverless vehicles have to be robust against
• Investigate what it means to be robust, encompassing fault detection, handling and redundancy- Explore how we can leverage simulation and data collection for effective
testing against such failure modes

MAIN STAGE

“Flying cars” may sound like a thing of the future – but the reality is we’re already halfway there. MaaS encompasses a broad spectrum of mobility solutions, everything from
ride sharing to public transit, scooters to aerospace.
• Looking at how the aerospace industry factors into the equation – will autonomous flight be held to the same safety standards as autonomous vehicles?
• Where do a pilot-less planes fit within the mobility ecosystem? What’s the use case, and how would this realistically be deployed?
• Work being done in real time in industry. How far are we from rolling out this technology?

GM’s request to deploy a limited number of autonomous vehicles on US roads and Nuro’s aims to incorporate low-speed, highly automated driverless delivery vehicles,
among several other petitions and requests for regulation from OEMs may finally be realized. Sit in on this panel session to hear from regulators on implementing regulation to
facilitate the deployment of AV, including:
• Updates from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s request for public feedback
• Developments on the Self-Drive Act
• Moving from self-assessment to government regulated safety inspections
