Autonomous driving touches every single aspect from engineering over production to operations of future fleets - combined with massive change in the business use cases of industry participants. Strategic moves include setup and operations of test environments, combining stakeholders across industries. Deutsche Telekom participates in such test fields across Europe - covering connectivity, platform operations for development, testing and simulation as well as business case assessments for cross-industry scenarios (e.g. integrated mobility, last mile logistics).
Our project results indicate, that technology itself will not be the limiting factor to bring autonomous driving into broader scale usage. Existing communication technologies already enable the majority of use cases. 5G will push Cellular V2x communication with higher Quality of Service and Precise Positioning. Combined with Mobile Edge computing this is a good basis, but these technologies need to be integrated into a wider ecosystem.
The key requirement is the transfer of domain knowledge from existing systems integration and big data scenarios into Autonomous Driving Operation Platforms. Key topics are over-the-air updates, automotive-specific security and use-case specific monitoring across all components of Autonomous Driving.
The development of this ecosystem needs to be linked to the Engineering process itself – combining Digital Twins of vehicles with Digital Twins of their surrounding environments.
As we expect significant efforts for type approvals, on an ongoing basis instead of initial homologation. Integration and standardization efforts will increase. The mentioned components of Autonomous Driving ecosystems will become part of future operations platforms. The presentation will discuss existing project results and experience and will suggest an ecosystem approach for OEMs. The session is intended for both, business and technical stakeholders as it covers the end-to-end view.
