What makes developing an automated vehicle harder than flying to the moon?
Practical Challenges in Automated Driving Development

Dr. Marc Wimmershoff (Zoox Inc.)

In recent years, the development of automated vehicles has already produced many innovative solutions for practical implementation. Nevertheless, there are still many practical technical challenges, some of which will be discussed in this lecture. Marc Wimmershoff will report on his practical development work and give examples of different driving situations with special demands on behaviour and movement planning.
