The verification side has improved, but has a long way to go. Note: In my last post I talked about what automation will do to this planet over the … More Finding bugs in autonomous vehicles: My impressions from the second Stuttgart symposium

This long(ish) post summarizes my impressions. I did not know much … More My impressions from the Stuttgart Autonomous Vehicles Test & Development symposium
