2013/11/08

Summary

 ITS World Congress Tokyo 2013 shared the current development status of autonomous driving technologies through the panel discussions by leading global automakers. Autonomous driving technology addressing safety has been recognized widely as a common goal on a long term basis. MarkLines visited the exhibition held concurrently with the congress and confirmed the challenges for autonomous driving to be realized. The challenges include finding a middle ground between cost and safety functions, higher accuracy of object detection through improved image processing, promotion of studies on technologies for recognizing objects other than vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, some findings of future challenges are expressed from literature review, which are different from those of the ITS congress.
