Challenges on the Way to Automated Driving

October 10, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Several major automobile manufacturers and several non-automobile corporations (including Google and Uber) are developing self-driving vehicles.   They are convinced such vehicles are the wave of the future and that the technological difficulties in the way can be addressed successfully.  Several envisage vehicles without steering wheels or foot controls.  Mercedes-Benz is working to develop such a vehicle.   It is our great good fortune that Mercedes Benz’s Director for Vehicle Intelligence\, Dr. Christoph Schroeder\, will visit Auburn and discuss its projects.
Dr. Schroeder has a degree in computer engineering\, an MBA in technology management\, and a PhD.   After completing his training in 2012\, he joined Bosch to work on highly automated driving projects.   In 2016\, he joined Mercedes-Benz and is now Director for Vehicle Intelligence and is in charge of directing its program to develop self-driving cars.
