Demonstrations of increasingly connected and automated heavy vehicles on public highways and bustling worksites are becoming more commonplace, as the commercial vehicle industry continues to pursue improved fuel efficiency and operator productivity while enhancing safety.

This one-hour Technical Webinar from the editors of SAE International explores how we get from advanced driver-assistance systems and wireless connectivity, which enable platooning formations and remote-control operation, to Level 4 / 5 autonomous vehicles. Topics include testing and simulation strategies, regulatory hurdles, real-world applications, vehicle architecture for ADAS and autonomous driving, and the progression to real-time machine-made decisions and machine learning.

An audience Q&A is included.
