Connected and Automated Vehicles: The Imperative to Deploy

Monday, July 31, 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.


Connected and automated vehicle technologies have evolved from infancy to late adolescence in the past 20 years. This maturation has come with both notable highs and lows. Amongst the highlights, in 2007, the DARPA Urban Challenge put automated vehicles into public view on a scale unprecedented until that time. Five years later, in 2012, CAR and KPMG published Self-Driving Cars: The Next Revolution. This report coincided with a dramatic jump in the development of, and interest in, automated vehicle technology. In these 20 years, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technologies have also advanced considerably, but their development has faced numerous challenges, such as threats to dedicated use of the 5.9 GHz spectrum.  In the near future, both automated vehicle technology and active safety-based connectivity are on the verge of wider deployment, perhaps with even one or more mandates.

The Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) session will explore topics such as:

  • Critical policy, regulatory, and technical developments driving the industry along the path toward higher levels of automation.
  • Whether these technologies will live up to their potential and graduate into the realm of real added value for consumers: saving lives, improving traffic management, and so on?
  • What hidden challenges remain before consumers use CAVs for daily travel.
