All major topics adressed at CESA 2014
This morning, a round table was organized to discuss human factors. It was one of the most interestinf of the event. Experts from OEMs (Renault),l Tier 1 suppliers (Continental, Visteon), labs (LAB, IFSTTAR) and even aeronautics (Thales Avionics) commented how they were trying to keep driver's attention focused on the road. The conclusion is : one HMI doesn't fit for all situations.
There is for sure an HMI to invent for autonomous driving. That's the task in France of VeDeCoM institute for instance.
In the morning, attendees heard from two OEMs representatives. Jean-Marc Finot, VP for research and innovation at PSA, talked about electrification, ADAS, connected car HMI and autonomous driving. Ralf Herrtwich, Director Advanced Engineering and Group Research at Daimler made a keynote speech on the autonomous car. He told that it was not so easy, that it would take time due to ISO 26262 standard and that a self driving car would not solve necessarily traffic jams. But, this car will be much more comfortable. Daimler sees a future also in car sharing to offer at an afforable price autonomous driving.
In conclusion, you can see on that chart the main keywords that can resume what the CESA 3.0 was all about. It's the result of interviews made by the congress chaiman, Jochen Langheim.
