The automotive industry is currently facing challenges in developing an autonomous car.  OEMs must upgrade communication systems, RF structures, navigation and 4G/cellular systems to effectively communicate with other vehicles and pedestrians, establish lane priority and avoid accidents. In addition, automakers must develop and implement testing scenarios, so that autonomous cars can make safe/ethical decisions when faced with unexpected scenarios.

Due to these issues, Automotive IQ is hosting this event to bring together automotive and cyber security experts under one roof to discuss the solutions to these rising challenges.
