Autonomous vehicle (AV) or connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) is a vehicle capable of sensing its surroundings and moving safely with minimal or no human input. Developers of AV use vast amounts of data collected from different sensors like image,  video, Motion, Lidar  sensors and so on to build systems that can drive autonomously. In autonomous vehicles, therefore, it involves identification, reconstruction, estimation of movement, monitoring, understanding of scenes and end-to-end learning which is done using AI and ML algorithms. This theme helps participants in understanding the importance, challenges and opportunities in the field of Autonomous vehicles.
