The automotive industry is transforming to a greater degree that
has occurred since Henry Ford introduced mass production of the
automobile with the Model T in 1913. Advances in computing, data
processing, and artificial intelligence (deep learning in
particular) are driving the development of new levels of automation
that will impact all aspects of our lives including our
What are Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs)? What are the underlying technologies that need to mature and converge for them to be widely deployed?
