Claytex exhibit and present at the TaaS Technology Conference 2019 taking place from 9th to 10th July 2019 at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull.
The market for private automobile ownership is likely headed for disruption.
A NEW REVOLUTION BEGINS
Today, humankind is at the brink of another revolution: the revolution of AD – of automated driving. It won’t happen overnight, with a big bang. It will come in small steps, a revolution through evolution. At first, intelligent on‐board technology will support drivers more and more. Next, vehicles will learn to communicate with each other – and ultimately to take over control, if the driver so wishes.
The era of the autonomous vehicle is here. According to industry estimates, by 2020, the autonomous vehicle market will be worth US$87 billion. Furthermore, by 2040, it is predicted that four out of every 10 vehicles on the road will be autonomous.
At the second TaaS Technology Conference, industry- leading insiders will deliver more than 40 presentations discussing key topics.

Title: Sensor models enabling autonomous vehicles to perceive the road ahead more clearly
The artificial intelligence (AI) in an AV learns by experience, so must be exposed to many thousands of possible scenarios in order to develop the correct responses. It would be unsafe and impractical to achieve this only through physical testing at a proving ground because of the timescales required. Instead a process of virtual testing in a simulated environment offers the scope to test many more interactions, more quickly and repeatably, before an AV is used on the public highway.
The challenge has been to ensure that virtual testing is truly representative, and that the AV will respond the same on the road as it did in simulation. Just as a driving simulator must immerse the driver in a convincing virtual reality, the sensor models used to test an AV must accurately reproduce the signals communicated by real sensors in real situations.
The presentation will cover the development of a suite of generic, ideal sensor models for radar, LiDAR and ultrasound sensors, using software from rFpro that has developed solutions for a number of technical limitations that have constrained sensor modelling until now, including new approaches to rendering, beam divergence, sensor motion and camera lens distortion.
