Today’s automobile industry has faced three challenges: from the internal combustion engine to the electric engine, from human driver-based mechanical operations to software-enabled autonomous driving, and from the ownership business model to the mobility as a service. The transformation will not only reshape the automobile industry in the coming decade with the trillion-dollar new market opportunities but will also offer humanity a better future with cleaner energy consumption, cheaper and safer transportation services, and more efficient use of the urban infrastructures.
However, the application of immature and unreliable software in autonomous driving has caused fatal accidents resulting in property loss or even loss of life. Improving the dependability (including safety, security, reliability, etc.) of such software is very challenging. On one hand, software for autonomous vehicles must deal with highly dynamic and volatile environments. On the other hand, it needs to incorporate increasingly complicated new technologies based on the use of machine vision, motion sensors, image and voice recognition, and artificial intelligence to interact with surrounding environments and respond to the continuous changes for appropriate solutions.
The Technical Committee on Electric Autonomous Vehicles (EVA) of the IEEE Reliability Society will collaborate with the Ninth International Conference on Dependable Systems and Their Applications (DSA 2022) to organize a one-day workshop on August 4th to discuss techniques and experiences that can help practitioners develop highly dependable software for safe, secure, and reliable autonomous vehicles.
