The Intelligent Vehicles Revolution
The automotive field is in the midst of a technological transformation. In the traditional segment where a driver controls the vehicle, the automation level is gradually increased, as witnessed by the ever more sophisticated highway autopilots. At the same time, a new self-driving vehicle segment is emerging where a human driver is no longer necessary - these vehicles provide a mobility service for going from location A to location B.
- Why do self-driving vehicles make sense?
- What are the remaining research challenges?
- How can the newly founded Intelligent Vehicles group at TU Delft contribute?
- When will these vehicles come about?
This inaugural speech will outline the prospects.
