Call For Papers

Driverless cars, also called self-driving cars or robot cars, are one of the great technological advances for the future transportation. With the investments by the U.S. government and innovative companies in recent years, several companies and research institutions working in the field have fully demonstrated that self-driving vehicles are technically viable nowadays. Moreover, the last decade has shown a great leap in public interest in driverless car technologies. There is a common goal of making driverless cars a reality by 2020's. But Google said in 28 April 2014 that they could get the technology to public by 2017 as shown in the US Today News, Google: Driverless Cars Are Mastering City Streets. No matter when, The safety is most important.

Driverless cars have the potential to positively benefits humanity. Car manufactures have continually added automation features to improve vehicle safety since many decades ago. A full 90 percent of accidents are caused by human errors, such as loss of focus, sleepiness, etc. However, robot cars have great technology strengths on safety over human weaknesses. They can react in milliseconds to avoid accidents. This is why the first thing every advocate of driverless cars brings up is the technology's safety benefits.

Additionally, a variety of non-technical issues, such as legal, liability, regulatory, culture, privacy concerns, need to be addressed. These will help consumers trust the capability of driverless cars to give up control and embrace many potential benefits that driverless cars present.

COM.DriverlessCar 2014: The 1st International Summit on Driverless Car Computing is the premier annual forum featuring with a mixture of inspiring presentations and interactive discussions on driverless car technology challenges as well as non-technical issues. Both will impact driverless vehicle integration onto tomorrow's roadway. Researchers, practitioners, Policy-makers, decision-makers, and project managers from government agencies, industry, and academia are invited to discuss trends, challenges, research and applications as well as policies and business potentials for driverless cars.
