The Open Road to Autonomous Driving
The autonomous driving market continues to heat up as automakers race to acquire tech companies or forge partnerships with suppliers who can accelerate and expand their development efforts. This flurry of M&A activity over the past year is being driven by the realization that the software and hardware required for autonomous driving is too complex for any company to develop alone. While this is a step in the right direction, an open source platform for automakers to share information such as map data, miles driven and scenarios tested could speed up production cycles and decrease time-to-market. Dan Cauchy, General Manager of Automotive at The Linux Foundation, will discuss the impact that open source could have on autonomous driving and how collaboration could benefit automakers without hindering competition.
