How Can Autonomous Vehicles Be Protected Against Cyber Security Threats?

While autonomous vehicles are expected to be far less prone to accidents than driver-controlled vehicles once they’ve undergone substantial training, they may pose a more serious threat. Due to the over-the-air hardware and software updates these vehicles routinely require, experts believe they have the potential to easily come under attack from hackers who can use […]

Researchers Make Breakthroughs in Autonomous Vehicle Systems

In recent years, autonomous vehicles have made significant progress. Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet, recently incorporated its next-generation hardware sensor system into its Jaguar I-Pace vehicles. The company will use the system to collect data for training machine-learning models. In March, General Motors announced plans to invest over $20 billion USD through […]

Autonomous Vehicle Developers Prepare for a Long Road to Autonomy 

Across the world, autonomous vehicles are revving up, but the journey to full autonomy is likely to be long. According to current estimates, these vehicles will need to undergo at least 11 billion miles of on-the-road training before they can match the capabilities of human drivers. Not only will autonomous vehicle technology (AV) development take […]

Cyber Security in the World Around You

The need for cyber security is increasing as the number of devices interconnected by cloud technology grows. Because everyday life is growing more reliant on technology, the likelihood of any one cyber attack having significant and far-reaching consequences is also growing. In 2018, researchers from the University of Kent identified fifty-seven different ways in which […]

Free Webinar: IEEE Guide to Autonomous Vehicle Technology

You are invited to participate in a live complimentary IEEE course program webinar presented by Dr. Alexander M. Wyglinski, Dr. Nasser Lashgarian Azad, and Dr. Steve Vozar.

Automated vehicle (AV) technology offers many potential benefits to drivers. However, there is still some remaining uncertainty about efficacy and usability when users interact with these systems. This webinar will address this uncertainty as well as cover foundational and practical applications of autonomous, connected, and intelligent vehicle technologies.

Key Take-Aways:

  • How to properly identify typical sensors used in an AV
  • Learn to assess the benefits and drawbacks of different sensing modalities
  • How to model and evaluate the performance of intelligent vehicle control algorithms using state-of-the-art techniques and concepts
  • Live Q&A session
