At the end of the two-day world congress attendees will:
- Have a clearer understanding of the progress being made in autonomous vehicle development
- Understand the role that user’s vision and cognition will have in a journey ranging from no driver assist technology to full autonomy—i.e. S.A.E.* Level zero to level five.
- Better appreciate the contributions that the technology enabling autonomous mobility will make in health care.
- Have a better idea where the health care universe will fit in the automotive industry.
- Appreciate the potential that big data management and the disruptive IT technology developing in the transportation industry may have in health care and wellness
- Have reviewed progress in the field of human-machine interface in automotive transportation and the roles that vision and cognition will play in this rapidly unfolding field
- How can medical and visual scientists play a role in human factors and auto design issues?
- How does a revolution in transportation influence human medicine?
- Can sensor data or driving performance changes indicate possible health challenges?
- What role will this democratization of transportation play in human medicine and rehabilitation?
- How must these vehicles be modified for the blind and/or physically handicapped communities?
- Can physicians identify design changes in semi-autonomous systems in response to known medical challenges?
