Towards Fully Autonomous Driving: Technologies and System Effects
Companies, research institutes and universities around the world are competing to be front runner in the development of autonomous vehicles. With the current speed of technological development, soon, it will be inevitable that autonomous driving will be a reality including public & private transportation and mining areas. It is obvious that travelling with autonomous vehicles will be major type of transportation when the benefits of them are realized by the public. In this presentation, first I will focus on core and supportive technologies that enable autonomous driving, then I will go depth in system level and talk about future sustainable transport solutions and explain system effects of autonomous vehicles.
Erol works as a program coordinator at NEVS – National Electric Vehicle Sweden for the development of next generation full-electric, autonomous and connected cars. Recently he took the lead in a R&D project that is related to autonomous driving and connected services, augmented reality and internet of things thanks to his expertise in these areas. He has a mechanical engineering background and obtained MSc. in production engineering & management from KTH – Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. He wrote two master theses on autonomous vehicles and internet of things for graduation. While he was studying master degree, he also worked as a full-time researcher and programmer in an EU-funded industry 4.0 project at KTH. He created the first production-grade cloud computing system in robotic research labs at KTH. Also, he completed pedagogical courses to become a university teacher. Before starting NEVS, he worked at Scania and RISE AB in research areas autonomous vehicles and internet of things respectively.
