Automotive Electronics

Making automobiles safe, autonomous and dependable

Future enable the revolutionary transition from driver assistance to fully autonomous vehicles  

The transformation of automobiles into safe, dependable, autonomous vehicles has already started with the increasing availability and capabilities of advanced driver-assistance systems today. The Auto research program attempts to identify and define the technology required to enable the revolutionary transition from driver assistance to fully autonomous vehicles. In particular autonomous vehicles need to be better than their human counterparts in perceiving and understanding their environment, making the appropriat decisions, as well as, remaining safe and dependable in all driving conditions. To make this dream a reality, this program targets orders of magnitude improvements in perception, environmental learning, dependability, safety, power and cost

SRC and NSF to Collaborate on Research Agenda

SRC and NSF worked together to hold a joint workshop in 2017 which lead to the creation of the Smart and Autonomous Systems (S&AS) program at NSF. SRC is launching a parallel program in 2019 with detailed research needs.

Auto themes:

  • Sensor fusion and perception
  • Advanced reasoning and learning
  • High dependability
