Take an exclusive board level perspective on the technological developments that will impact the motor insurance industry and its direction moving towards 2020.

  • The future of motor insurance. Usage-based insurance (UBI) remains a niche product despite huge optimism. What’s the hold up and where does UBI lie in future strategy of insurers?
  • Understand how the emergence of connected car mobility (e-hailing, carsharing fleets, P2P car rental) presents a momentous shift in underwriting strategies for insurers today
  • IoT brings a new ecosystem. Uncover the partnerships that enable access to multiple data sets from multiple devices to build a more accurate depiction of risk for the driver and vehicle

2.30-3.00pm The Evolving Ecosystem of Connected Car Insurance

As intelligent mobility, IoT and autonomous technology develop we explore the growing ecosystem and the shifting technologies that affect risk calculation for insurers.

  • As data sets from road infrastructure and traffic management systems increase, insurers can build the entire picture of the driver journey. How valuable will OEM data be for risk calculation?
  • A bundled ecosystem. Understand how insurers will develop risk analysis models for different transportation modes (e.g. e-hail to train to car share) to support inter-modal travel
  • The nature of insured assets are changing. Will autonomous tech. and carsharing models encourage insurers to fuse connected car with home and health to bolster premiums revenue?

3.40-4.10pm End-to-End Security

Everyone needs to prove that their systems are secure. But, security does not exist at individual product levels, they all need to sync in to provide a system that is entirely secure.

  • Develop a strategy for holistic end- to-end security, designing security in from the outset to ensure robust practices and systems to guarantee protection to the driver
  • Engage the supply chain. Who do you need to work with and how to guarantee no weak links, minimise vulnerabilities and avoid reactive security measures?
  • Build a flexible architecture that can adapt to handle unknown future threats. Ensure minimization of vulnerabilities and secure customers trust for ongoing business

4.10-4.40pm Cyber Security, a Risky Business

As vehicles become more intelligent and updateable they become more reliant on connectivity. He we explore the vulnerability of connected attack surfaces and the risk of being left open.

  • Cost Vs Risk: Assess where to apply resources and investment to mitigate against cyber-attacks in the most effective way, rather than spending millions on retrospective patches
  • Understand the efforts that are being undertaken to establish standards around vehicle cyber security to combat future car crime and develop appropriate countermeasures
  • More sophisticated semi-autonomous driver assistance and safety systems will increasingly rely on connectivity. How extensive is the inherent risk when you consider cyber-attacks?

4.40-5.10pm The open standards enabling vision processing in ADAS

For cars to take control or drive themselves, they must “see” their surroundings in a fast, safe and secure way.

  • Explore the recent advances in computing hardware that have made classic vision algorithms practical in real-time and appropriate for the automotive needs.
  • Learn which open software standards allow competition and innovation in a supply chain providing substantial advantages to all involved.
  • Debate the pros and cons of open versus closed software standards, the growing use of OpenCL™ in automotive and how SYCL will enable advance machine learning solutions.

2.00-2.30pm ADAS and Autonomous Market Map

With ADAS and fully autonomous systems still relatively new we don’t have quite the wealth of data on the market. To combat this Wards Auto have conducted a comprehensive review.

2.30-3.00pm ADAS and Autonomous - Two Paths with the Same Destination?

Hear from both sides of the debate on how we move from level 2/3 systems into the rarefied atmosphere of 4/5 safely.

  • Address head on the issues brought up through the tragic Tesla crash. Learn whether there is more the industry could be doing to progress safely and without costly legal ramifications
  • Explore the intersections between current ADAS systems and what is required for full autonomy in areas such as sensor fusion and how to enhance those systems safely

4.10-4.40pm Autonomous Security for Connected Cars

Connected car security has become a major priority for automakers. We explore how to block hackers before they infiltrate the car

  • Empower ECUs to autonomously protect themselves according to locked down factory settings
  • Every operation that is not part of factory settings is blocked; no false positives whatsoever
  • No need for policy updates according to new malware, as ECU’s autonomous security is based on factory settings
  • Prevent cyber-attacks similar to the recent cyber hacks (e.g. Tesla, Corvette, Jeep) without requiring any developer intervention
  • No need to change the ECU hardware in order to enable it with Autonomous Security hardening

4.40-5.10pm Sensor (con)Fusion - Can We See The Way Forward?

Sensors play a vital role in the development of safety tech. - but how will the data sets from radar, LiDAR, cameras and other sources be combined to create an effective level 3/4 vehicle?

  • Explore who will have final responsibility for data fusion, will the OEM take the lead once the sensors are in situ or will this be finished at the Tier 1 level?
  • Discover the optimal sensor mix to build out the most complete environmental picture - e.g. Camera for quick processing at high velocity, vs radar micro-Doppler for urban pedestrians
  • As sensor numbers in the vehicle increase, understand the requirements for semiconductors and processing power to correctly handle the volume of data, which will grow exponentially
