Keynote Speaker: Prof. Dr. Dariu Gavrila, Head of the Intelligent Vehicles Group

After 20 years at Daimler R&D, Prof. Dr. Dariu Gavrila, recently moved back to academia to head up the Intelligent Vehicles and Cognitive Robotics section at TU Delft.

Over his career Prof. Gavrila has focused on visual systems for detecting humans and their activity, with application to intelligent vehicles, smart surveillance and social robotics. He led the multi-year pedestrian detection research effort at Daimler, which was incorporated in the Mercedes-Benz S-, E-, and C-Class models (2013-2014). He is frequently cited in the scientific literature and received the I/O 2007 Award from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) and the IEEE Intelligent Transportation Systems Application Award 2014.

The Tech.AD Business & Technology Sessions

  • Level 3 & 4 – Challenges for virtual & real life testing, validation & simulation
  • Will software be the future differentiator of automated cars? In addition, what does it needs? Scalable, platform-independent software architectures for ADAS and automated driving ‒ Is the V Model still valid or do we need to restructure the development process?
  • Fail-operational automated driving architectures – What are the challenges in development and testing? In addition in which extent will the number of test cases increase with a higher level automation?
  • How does automated driving impact the user experience? Autonomous driving from an end-user and usability perspective
  • Automated parking ‒ Architecture / integration, modular functional development & strategic implications
  • Deep Driving ‒ Artificial intelligence, Deep Learning & Deep Driving in Automotive ‒ What are state of the art algorithms for computer vision and machine learning including those most important for the automotive industry?
