SHORT BIOGRAPHY:

MAX MAURO DIAS SANTOS (M’15-SM’17) is an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electronics, Federal Technological University of Paraná – Ponta Grossa (UTFPR-PG) – Brazil. He received the bachelor degree in electrical engineering from Catholic Institute of Minas Gerais – Brazil (ICMG), in 1993, M.E. in electrical engineering from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) - Brazil, in 1996, Ph.D. in production engineering from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC) - Brazil, in 2004 and the Posdoctoral Fellow in electrical engineering from the University of Aveiro (UA) – Portugal, in 2005/2006. His main research areas are embedded systems, automotive systems and industrial automation.

ABSTRACT:

Car manufacturers are headed towards the new generation of cars that tend to be more autonomous as possible without the intervention of the driver being considered as part of the intelligent transportation systems. In fact, self-driving cars tend to have an increasing ability to drive autonomously, potentially reducing accidents and traffic congestion while also considering improved comfort, safety, and performance. This talks presents a discussion on the fundamentals, challenges and perspectives of self- driving cars to motivate the interested community in order to deeply understand the field. The definitions of self-driving cars are introduced in accordance with SAE International and NHTSA, which order and classify the autonomy levels of autonomous cars. For each level described by the SAE, it characterizes by functions and capacities more complex, the greater the level of autonomy of the vehicle and less dependence of human intervention. The sensors used in self-driving cars go from one-dimensional sensors like radar to the camera, scanner and LIDAR. This demonstrates that sensor fusion is an important and necessary aspect that provides a broad view of the environment in which the car is embedded in the decisions made under the appropriate driving conditions that they wish to reach. This talk highlight importante aspects and concepts to motivated the attendees to enter this fascinating and promising field in level of research and development.
