  • The making of an autonomous car by Joel Hoffmann, Automotive Unit Open Platform Marketing Manager, Renesas, Steven Waslander, Director, Waterloo Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory, University of Waterloo & Ross McKenzie, Managing Director, Waterloo Centre for Automotive Research (WatCAR), University of Waterloo

It is no longer a black art to build a car that drives itself under testing conditions. Complex hardware and sensor kits are available and free software has been put into open source. What is missing? Production readiness. Before a car can be built in series production, many technical challenges need to be solved, the most important surrounding safety.

Renesas Electronics and the University of Waterloo have assembled a team of over 50 engineers and scientists to solve some of those problems that will lead to achieving safer driving on real roads sooner. During this free 60-minute webinar you’ll hear their story and learn about what has been accomplished over the past 18 months.
