After Singapore, the Netherlands is the best prepared country for the arrival of the self-driving car. This became evident after an analysis by consultancy firm KPMG. Internationally, The Netherlands is therefore seen as leading. At the same time, there are currently major challenges in the Netherlands to actually get autonomous driving off the ground. Many of those challenges focus on ensuring safety in self-driving cars. We will discuss this during our Appl.AI webinar (Dutch spoken) ‘How safe are self-driving cars?’ on Thursday, November 5th between 3:00-4:00 PM (CET).
To this end, we set up a panel with AI researcher Jan-Pieter Paardekoper (TNO) and strategic advisor on autonomous driving Edwin Nas (RDW). During the webinar they will share their insight on 3 the below statements.
In addition to the largely mechanical technology that ensures that a car can accelerate, brake and steer, a self-driving car needs systems that ensure that the car can function autonomously. The basic technology behind the 'eyes' of an autonomous vehicle is explained in the video below.
The logistics sector is of crucial importance to the Netherlands. Developments in this area are rapid and many parties are involved. Think of the automotive industry, government, transport and science. It is important to share knowledge with each other and to maintain a dialogue with each other, so that we can take constructive steps in the Netherlands towards a world with self-driving cars. We set up the webinar interactively, so that you can ask questions to the panel members.
Please sign up here to attend the webinar. We look forward to seeing you at this Appl.AI webinar!
