    Keynote: Leveraging Simulation
    Autonomous vehicles must be tested in conditions that are risky for humans as well as those that are difficult for driverless cars before they can operate on public roads. Simulation makes it possible to drive millions of miles in virtual environments across a broad range of scenarios — from routine driving to rare or even dangerous situations — with greater efficiency, cost-effectiveness and safety than what is possible in the real world. Learn how autonomous vehicle developers are leveraging high-fidelity simulation to validate their technology at massive scale.

    Panel: Using Simulation and ML in ADAS
    Simulation is essential in developing and testing the systems that assist drivers in the cars of today. Using huge training datasets, Machine Learning, and Virtualized Simulations of real-world situations, ADAS performance can be improved, contributing to driver safety, comfort, and new features. But there are subtle and nagging differences between the real world, and the simulations, and bridging these is the crux of modern science. Our panel of hands-on experts will tell us the tricks and techniques they are using to get the most out of Simulations, and what it's offering today's cars.

    • Moderator: Derek Kerton, Chairman, Autotech Council
    • Heidi Hysell, CEO & Co-Founder, Alpha Drive
    • Vijay Nagasamy, Research Scientist, Ford
