Sign L3Pilot Summer School Thank you for joining us

The L3Pilot Summer School 2020 was held virtually on Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 September with a fully booked attendance of more than 240 participants from 33 countries around the world.

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 of Automated Driving (AD) have honored the event with their presence. The two day- event was full of intriguing presentations and constructive discussions covering the area of Automated Driving Testing and Implementation. The main challenges in the areas of AD technology were thoroughly discussed and supported by the AD community, PhD researchers, and SMEs who participated worldwide.

The event also provided the ground for 11 senior and junior researchers and PhD students to present their scientific work through a dedicated Poster Pitches Session while 3 more researchers submitted with success their posters, available in the Poster Pitches Section below.

The L3Pilot Summer School in numbers:

  • 246 registrants
  • More than 140 questions and comments posted by the audience
  • 36 Poster Pitches poll participants
  • 20 lectures from experienced in their field speakers
  • 6 Tutorial sessions focused on the key areas of: “Intro/AD key aspects/L3Pilot code of Practice/SAE L3 AD Public testing admission procedures”, “Human factors in focus”, “The road and infrastructure as an AD enabler”, “Security and Privacy concerns”, “Testing and validation framework” and “Data magic or Data into scenarios?”
  • 14 posters submitted and 11 Poster Pitches
