In Pursuit of Vision Zero: Roadmap 2025 in Safety Assessment

Michiel VAN RATINGEN - EURO NCAP
Secretary General

Euro NCAP provides consumers with a realistic and objective information about the safety of passenger cars sold in Europe. Over the last decades, consumer ratings had an important impact on vehicle design and on the fitment of safety technology, leading to fewer traffic deaths on European roads. Today’s system challenges vehicle makers to offer the best possible technology as standard in all segments and markets, protecting car occupants of all ages and sizes and to also look out for the safety of other road users in traffic. Going forwards, Euro NCAP will continue to respond to the technological innovation in the vehicle fleet by introducing of several new tests under the overall safety rating. Furthermore, Euro NCAP aims to highlight automated driving technologies and raise awareness of their benefits.

Testing of Automated Vehicles

Professor Stefan PISCHINGER - FEV
President&CEO

In the expectation that autonomous and connected vehicles will strongly influence the automotive industry as well as public life, this presentation gives an outlook on concepts and core technologies for future mobility. New mobility concepts will arise from current technological as well as social trends and will push highly automated vehicles into the market. Considering that, FEV expects autonomous driving according to SAE level 4 to reach a noticeable market share in 2030. Once autonomous and connected vehicles will have been established numerously, customers are going to benefit from more comfort, increased safety, and a better system efficiency. However, before the benefits can be reaped, there are still many challenges to overcome, such as setting up a legal conditions and ensuring functional safety as well as cyber security.

Off-road Vehicle Autonomous Navigation

Andrea MERLO - THALES ALENIA SPAZIO
Study Manager / Robotics Engineer

This talk is related to the implementation of a vehicle Autonomous Navigation in a really unstructured and harsh environment… Planet Mars. The basic principles are the same: the vehicle needs to go from A to B, relying on its own sensors to detect hazards and find the safest route.
However there are several differences with respect to terrestrial applications:
- Strong Energy limitation (fuel: solar power), forcing the use of passive sensors and low power consumption actuators
- Extreme temperature environment, outside terrestrial and even military operational ranges
- Radiation Tolerance, causing the use of low miniaturization, fan-less and robust avionics with limited computational power
- Incredibly high reliability: a permanent failure is not recoverable by human intervention (mission loss)
- Lack of a GPS System and m-scale knowledge of the target area

1:30 pm - 2:30 pm Lunch

AFTERNOON SESSION - SALA FUCINE

2:30 pm - 3:15 pm Panel Session 1 - Connected and Autonomous Vehicles

MODERATOR: Vito MAURO - POLITECNICO DI TORINO

Fausto MOZZARELLI - CSI
Performance Assessment & Verification Director

Definition of standard procedures for assessing the performance of advanced driving assistance systems – ADAS
Abstract:
Car manufacturers design and implement many new features for assisted driving systems (ADAS) in the cars in order to provide support to the driver and to make the drive more comfortable and safer. Some standard requirements for evaluation of ADAS performances are available and taken as reference by the whole Industry, such as EuroNCAP protocols, but different car manufacturers have designed many of its ADAS technologies on the base of their own defined specifications. The spread of different technological contents makes the technological development of ADAS functions less effective and may lead to consumer over-trust.
Higher level of standardization is needed and it will eventually result in:
  • Proper definition of scenarios and targets in order to maximize the safety for the road users
  • Improvement of the technologies based on clear and unique requirements and performance definition /li>
  • Reduction of technology misunderstanding and over-trust by the users/li>
CSI is actively contributing to EuroNCAP standardization procedure for ADAS and will bring some experience to the discussion, explaining how a testing procedure is developed and implemented.

Enabling Automotive and ITS on a 5G Platform

Gabriele ELIA - TIM
RChief Technology Office

 Current mobile networks are rapidly evolving towards a new model usually referred to as 5G. At the centre of an intense industry-driven standardization work in 3GPP, which already released a first set of specifications, 5G is not only a new high performant radio access technology for new spectral resources, but it is a complete, flexible redesign of the carrier network, in order to cope with the requirements of a wide set of service requirements. The presentation, in particular, outlines how 5G can address Automotive and ITS needs, from extremely high throughputs to ultra-low latency, high availability and edge computing. To show these benefits for urban and wide area mobility, TIM 5G trials and R&D projects are briefly summarized.

Unleashing the Potential of Circular Mobility

Massimiano TELLINI - INTESA SANPAOLO - INNOVATION CENTER
Global Head – Circular Economy

 Circular Economy is spreading across multiple industries, including Mobility sector. We are seeing electric cars gradually becoming “the new normal” in our streets, but the shift toward Renewable Energy sources in automotive is just the first step in the transition. The linear economic model, based on a “take-make-dispose” approach, has catastrophic impacts on both the environment and the efficient use of resources. We run to car dealers in the weekends to buy the latest models: still, the average European car remains parked for 92% of its lifetime. Circular Economy offers an answer to this, enabling business models that are both convenient for the manufacturers and environmentally sustainable. Re-designing products to make materials recoverable at the end of vehicles’ lives and leveraging on sharing economy principles, we could use our resources longer and more efficiently. Intesa Sanpaolo is the leading financial institution supporting and financing the transition towards the Circular Economy to increase the resilience of our economic system as well as of our Group.

Mobility Governance and Mobility as a Service: the experience of Piemonte

Matteo ANTONIOLA - 5T
Business Dvelopment Manager

 The MaaS - Mobility as a Service paradigm is representing a revolutionary opportunity to redefine the transport system. In this scenario, public authorities are called to assume a new role in order to enhance cooperative dialogue between public and private actors and to ensure transport services accessibility to all citizens. This speech is dedicated to present the experience of Piemonte Region that is working on creating the conditions for a regional "MaaS ecosystem", the first one in Italy.

Extending the Mobility Service

Massimo MARTINOTTI - ITALDESIGN
Head of Project Management

Individual and collective mobility patterns are a key factor to improve the quality of citizens’ lives and economic chances. Meeting other people, discovering the unknown, personally seeing, touching and experiencing are incredible opportunities to develop ourselves as individuals and to change the world. Cities are at the center of this incredible playing field. It doesn’t matter if more and more people desire to live in. Italdesign is working to assure that this motor, the cities, continues to offer chances to everybody, also when challenges to be faced are exploding: renewable sources exhaustion, pollution, urbanization, loss of time and of intimacy, missing space. Posing people at the center is the vision of Italdesign, by moving from objects, namely means of transport, to on demand, customizable, connected and sharable Mobility Service, by integrating flexible digital and hardware technologies, to create unique solutions. To make Cities a better place to live.
