Dr. Steven Shladover on Road Vehicle Automation: History, Myths and Reality

For our next meetup we are pleased to welcome Dr. Steven Shladover. He has been researching vehicle automation systems for the past 40 years, beginning as a graduate student at MIT, so he can bring some historical perspective to the recent developments in automated driving. He is the Program Manager for Mobility at the California PATH Program of the University of California, Berkeley, where he has led many automation projects since 1989. Prior to that, he worked for Systems Control Technology, Inc. in Palo Alto. Dr. Shladover chairs the Transportation Research Board's Committee on Vehicle-Highway
Automation and represents the U.S. in ISO TC204/WG14, which develops international standards for vehicle-roadway warning and control systems.

His Presentation is: Road Vehicle Automation: History, Myths and Reality This presentation begins with an overview of almost 75 years of activities related to road vehicle automation, including historical videos of some of the earliest activities. It then focuses on some prevalent myths about automation that need to be examined critically, and contrasts them with the reality of the severe technical challenges that still need to be overcome before automated vehicles could be made as safe as today's drivers.

Some food will be provided. See you there!
