Autonomous Driving 5 main techno challenges Position Paper

Autonomous vehicles – whether for personal transport or freight delivery – could offer a potentially enormous disruption to life, business and society. The possible benefits - reductions in accidents arising from human error, reduced cost & environmental impact of transport, liberation of time currently committed to driving, and accessibility to a wider range of users - are all theoretically addressable.


Software-defined vehicles

Software has a key role to play in the shift towards vehicle autonomy.
