L3Pilot Summer School

The L3Pilot Summer School "Developing and Testing Automated Driving" will take place in Athens, Greece, on 13-14 May 2020.

With a focus on the theory and practice of Automated Driving Implementation and Testing, L3Pilot invites researchers, PhD students, developers, technicians and other professionals to learn more about  the progress of the largest European pilot-testing of SAE Level 3 driving functions implemented by L3Pilot partners as well as to discuss the latest findings and main challenges in the areas of Automated Driving Technology (AD), namely: the key enablers of AD, the Testing and Validation Framework, the AD Human Factors in automotive engineering and the Impact Assessment of the AD Deployment.

During the L3Pilot Summer School prominent speakers from academia and industry, both internal and external to the L3Pilot consortium, as well as key-experts from other European projects and international initiatives in the field, will join the event to thoroughly present the latest SoA developments, exchange knowledge and contribute to the ongoing discussions about the future of AD.

The Summer School will also provide the ground for senior and junior researchers and PhD students to expand their expertise and networks and present their research work through a dedicated poster area to a number of academics and highly qualified professionals in the field.
