Richard started to implement simulation from the scratch and during 25 years as Simulation Manager at Valeo, he was implementing a lot of different FEA simulations on a worldwide basis. Since 2008, Richard has been focussing on ADAS System Level Simulation as Valeo Driving Assistance Simulation Manager.


Panel discussion - Next frontiers in ADAS and autonomous vehicles simulation

Simulation is an indispensable tool in the development of ADAS and Autonomous Vehicles. Simulation tools and processes must keep pace with the rapid advancements happening in ADAS and AV technology stacks. This panel will share unique insights into the current state of ADAS and AV simulation technology and the next frontiers that the field faces. We will hear expert perspectives from an automotive OEM, a Tier-1 supplier, an AV simulation company, and a prominent academic thought leader. The panel will dive deep into new capabilities, process improvements, and innovations in simulation technology that will address upcoming challenges in all aspects of the automated driving stack including sensing, perception, planning, and controls.
