Autonomous Cars: How Do They Work and Impact Us?
“In 20 years driving a traditional car will feel like riding a horse on the highway today.”
The development of autonomous cars is changing not only the way we buy and use cars, but also our cities, economy, society, the environment and our way of life in general.
Talking to friends, family and business partners, I noticed a great interest in the subject, which includes concepts such as fully autonomous cars, vehicles and driving as well as self-driving, driverless, automated and robot cars.
If you are a motorist or generally interested in autonomous cars, what they are, how they work and influence us, this course will give you exciting insights into the race to autonomous cars and prepare you for what’s coming.
Major questions which will be answered for you are the following:
· What are autonomous cars?
· Is it safe?
· How do cars perceive?
· How do cars think?
· How will it impact us?
I will be contributing my 7 years of experience at Continental, where I was deeply involved in research and development of Advanced Driving Assistance, Vehicle Dynamics, Intra Vehicle and Vehicle2X Communication Systems. Enriched by the autonomous driving study I did during my MBA, I will show you what matters and what doesn’t.
Each video is produced in English, avoiding deep technical terms and explanations. Anyone with a general education should be able to follow.
Just like the race to the moon, the race to fully autonomous driving was started. On the one hand, we have a development driven by traditional players such as Audi / Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, Volvo, Ford, GM, Toyota. On the other hand, start-ups like Google / Waymo, Uber, Cruise and Byton and other disruptive players invest to beat them in a revolutionary way.
Instead of rockets and spacecrafts, the race will be decided by acoustics, camera, radar, laser/lidar sensors and algorithms using deep learning and closed loop theory.
The goal is a multi-trillion-dollar mobility as a service market that not only changes the industry, but everything from personal to everyone’s life.
Join the race and see you inside the course. You’ll enjoy it!
