Autonomous vehicles will soon be reality. They are perceived as an outstanding solution to many mobility issues: no more unexpected manoeuvres, thus less road accidents, etc. This technological development has immediate consequences for our daily reality: road infrastructure, law, ethics, impact on road safety, etc.

Our master students tackled several topics concerning autonomous driving. They will present their findings during the Seminar on Autonomous Driving. It will take place within two sessions: the first one on Friday, May 20, 2016, and the second one on Friday, May 27, 2016. We warmly welcome you to these seminars.
