The Intelligent Vehicles (R)evolution

The automotive field is in the midst of a technological transformation. In the traditional segment where a driver controls the vehicle, the automation level is gradually increased, as witnessed by the ever more sophisticated highway autopilots. At the same time, a new self-driving vehicle segment is emerging where a human driver is no longer necessary - these vehicles provide a mobility service for going from location A to location B.

  • Why do self-driving vehicles make sense?
  • What are the remaining research challenges?
  • How can the newly founded Intelligent Vehicles group at TU Delft contribute?
  • When will these vehicles come about?

This inaugural speech will outline the prospects.
