Workshop/Symposium on Highly Automated Driving Challenges, organized by the PIRE Project “Science and Design of Societal Scale CPS”


Societal and Technological Research Challenges for Highly Automated Road Transportation Systems in Germany and the US: Diversities and Synergy Potentials.


30 to 31 October 2018

Washington, D.C.


The rapidly increasing presence of autonomous systems driven by the confluence of advancements in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) creates fundamental societal and technical chal- lenges that intertwine liability, certification, assurance and policy issues. The symposium brings together research organizations and public authorities from US and Germany to discuss these challenges for the specific context of highly autonomous driving and will identify synergy potentials and differences in research approaches of both nations.

The symposium/workshop is organized by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and by the joint US-German project on “Science of Design for Societal Scale Cyber-Physical Systems” funded by the NSF Partnership for International Research and Education Excellence (PIRE) program, co-funded by the German DFG.
