Event outline

SIP-adus Workshop 2021

SIP-adus Workshop has been progressing with great momentum since 2014 as a forum where many automated driving experts in the areas of R&D and Service Implementation get together from all over the world to exchange their expertise and enrich their network.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the format change to a web-based conference for the 2020 Workshop allowed for the largest number of participants from Japan and overseas to attend a SIP Workshop to date.

In 2021, the 8th SIP-adus Workshop will also be held online. This year’s program will include an opening session and plenary sessions with eight different themes. The plenary sessions will include international speakers who will present the latest on their respective policies, initiatives and projects. Additionally, experts can join a Breakout Workshop on-site to discuss and exchange opinions on each theme.

Details will be announced on this website, so please check for frequent updates.

  • Date

  • November 9 - 10, 2021
  • Conference theme

  • After the opening session with Keynote speeches from presenters from Japan, Europe, and the United States, experts from Japan and overseas will emphasize the conference theme of SIP automated driving in their lectures on the latest polices, initiatives, and projects in the following eight sessions, additionally Japanese government ministries and agencies introduce their attempt related to automated driving.

    • In this session, speakers from each government like US, Europe, Japan, etc. will introduce latest research activities and topics regarding automated driving, including keynote speech from executives.
    • Diffusion of automated driving vehicles (ADs) will help to reduce traffic accidents, alleviate traffic congestion, resolve the driver shortage, and resolve other social problems. On the other hand, ADs are necessary to be installed with adequate consent by people and society. In this session, experts will address views, issues and challenges related to social impact of AD technologies.
    • In this session, we will discuss how we can think about the feasible business model for automated driving and how to integrate autonomous driving into local transport.
    • Public transport services using automated shuttles and busses are expected to be a key solution to the social problem of limited mobility in rural areas and have been tested in fields in various countries. High level safety is essential for social implementation and wide spread of the services. In automoted mobility services, both system and service are designable. The larger degree of freedom in design is expected to bring breakthroughs for the inplementation but may raise new risks due to the complexity. In this session, human factor challenges for safety of the automated mobility services in various contries will be shared.
    • This session is to share the world latest examples of dynamic contents distribution/exchange with Dynamic Map and the updates, and to discuss the direction for further international collaborations and the possibility for the utilization of latest technologies.
    • The use of connectivity for automated driving and Advanced Safe Driving Systems is being considered in each regions of the world, but it has not yet been put into full-scale practical use.
      We will share trends regarding cooperative driving automation in each region and consider issues.
    • The virtual environment is an indispensable technology for the realization of security. So as to acceleratte the expansion of virtual testing technology for safety assurance, the international cooperation on the requirements for the virtual environment and the method of validation should be enhanced. The virtual environment and evaluation methods are discuseed in this session in order to figure out how to proceed with future collaboration and harmonization.
    • It is expected that UN regulation will soon be adopted to detect and respond to cyber attacks, but it is not easy for each OEM to determine and implement the optimum detection performance level for their communication system. In this research, focusing on in-vehicle IDS / IDPS, we will consider the evaluation method for selecting the optimum IDS/IDPS for each OEM's communication system, technical reqirements for the initial resoponse/recovery action when cyber attacks detected and the basic thought of establishing V-SOC which can be said to be a competitive area for each OEM.
    • In this session, their various attempts related to automated driving, ITS as well as Information and Communication technologies will be introduced by the contributing Japanese government ministries and agencies.
