**Can L4 robotaxi software improve ADAS features?**
6:00p Welcome reception
6:30p Presentation with Q&A
In the early 2000s, when the thought of autonomous mobility was in its infancy, ADAS was not a common acronym, and such features were only found in a handful of European luxury vehicles. Fast forward to 2023, and many car brands include ADAS features in every model. However, the market for L4 autonomous systems has yet to fully develop. The propagation of these similar technology tracks has happened at the same time, but the benefits of each have yet to be combined. A number of L4 companies are now looking to change this as the ADAS market grows, and robotaxis struggle to gain commercial traction in many countries.
As the age of the “software-defined vehicle” evolves, companies that have spent years focused on driverless applications are seeing new needs arise from OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) and Tier 1 suppliers who have traditionally focused on hardware. Features such as data fusion, localization, perception, planning, and prediction will become increasingly important as OEMs shift from L2 to L3.
This talk will focus on the features and models needed by OEMs and how L4 companies need to adapt to serve a far more regulated and computationally restrained environment. Will the combination of these technologies bring safer mobility systems sooner?
