In recent SAEA Summer Conference, members discussed the fast-evolving world of autonomous driving and its technology, including the challenges of implementing technology.

Autonomous driving cars use advanced perception sensors–an assembly of complex visual sensors and machine learning to figure out what’s happening around the car in order to make a decision about what to do next.

SAEA members engaged in lively discussion around the potential of autonomous cars, as well as career advancement for software, industrial, mechanical, and automotive engineers engaging with this innovative field.

They also discussed the potential challenges of implementing autonomous driving technologies such as traffic management, the infrastructure required to utilize the technology widely, city revenue loss from decreased traffic ticketing, new ways of handling liability insurance, as well as the requirement of completely new training systems for police and emergency response services.
