9:40 am - 10:20 am Autonomous Driving Experience with GWM – Key Project and Technology UpdatesMark Crawford - Chief Engineer, Autonomous Driving Systems, Great Wall Motor
On August 27, tech giant Baidu and Chinese automaker Great Wall Motors (GWM) announced the intention to deepen research and development (R&D) in high-definition maps and autonomous cars on Baidu’s open platform Apollo. The two companies are aiming to achieve mass production of self-driving automobiles by the end of 2020.

10:20 am - 11:00 am Cost Assessment of Autonomous Transit ServicesDr. Aybike Ongel - Principal Investigator, Individual Mobility Vehicles and Services (IMVS), TUMCREATE Singapore
TUMCREATE developed an autonomous electric vehicle concept, a microtransit vehicle with 30-passenger capacity, which can complement the bus transit system. This study shows that although the acquisition costs of the autonomous electric vehicles are higher than those of their conventional counterparts, they can reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) per passenger-km up to 75% and 60% compared to their conventional counterparts and the buses, respectively.

3:10 pm - 3:50 pm IP Protection for Connected And Autonomous VehiclesNicholas Lauw - Partner, Rajah & Tann Singapore LLP
Intellectual property protections for the innovations driving many of the recent advances in CAVs are in a state of flux. The best intellectual property strategy to protect those developments will depend not just on the type of technology at issue but also on whether the technology was developed independently or as part of a collaborative effort.
Nevertheless, with appropriate planning, a company or group of companies may successfully employ an intellectual property protection strategy involving both patents and trade secrets that maximizes its chances of protecting its innovations. This workshop will provide some key tips for IP protection in the context of CAVs.
- Reflect the allocation of design and development responsibilities and risks borne by each party to the collaboration, including overall integration responsibility, responsibility for design defects, costs of recall and product liability issues.
- Recognize the need for continued collaboration and future access to underlying components of the jointly developed product to enable continuous improvements and cybersecurity defense given the rapid change in both the technology itself and the regulatory environment that is still adapting to these new capabilities.
