AV beyond the hype: how to prepare for mass deployment
The concept of AV has been proven in many pilots during the last decade. The first companies are offering commercial AV services at a limited scale. Now, the industry needs to prepare for scaling up. These vehicles will serve new locations with new driving environments, such as more variable weather and road conditions, diverse driving cultures and further challenges. How do we deal efficiently with this increase, especially in the light of scarce engineering resources around the globe? This presentation will show how to grow the expansion of AV efficiently without growing the underlying development and validation resources at the same pace.
