Live Event & National Webinar
Entrusting the driving task to a computer will eventually become a reality, but the journey to then will be gradual, complex and potentially dangerous.
Synopsis
As we grapple with the reality of dealing with a range of Autonomous Vehicles (AV) on our roads, there is general agreement these vehicles will make driving easier, more comfortable, and eventually, safer. Entrusting the driving task to a computer will eventually become a reality, but the journey to then will be gradual, complex, and potentially dangerous.
As the technology improves the risk profile changes and the number of unexpected and potentially dangerous events the car will not be able to reliably respond to will reduce. However, this raises new issues around driver awareness where the driver could become complacent in an environment where increasing speed and other, unforeseen obstacles could result in potentially dire consequences.
This raises new challenges for many organisations involved with AV safety including regulators, manufacturers, law enforcement, and associated organisations such as Engineers Australia and the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP).
The ACT Government, together with Seeing Machines, has established an AV study - initiated the CAN drive -  trial which will, through observing driver behaviour in an automated vehicle setting, help us better understand when and why, from both a safety and a regulatory perspective, a driver should be in control rather than the automated vehicle, and help to manage the transition from one to the other with reduced risk.
The CAN Drive trial CAN drive supports a growing appetite internationally to understand issues such as when and how drivers will use automated driving functions and how it might impact their awareness of the environment around them, as well as their ability to take control of steering and speed functions from the vehicle when required, and at short notice.
A panel discussion will be held at Seeing Machines offices, Fyshwick, and broadcast live via a National Webinar.
Speaker 1: Mr Andrew McCredie, ACT Government AV Trial Governance Committee:  Why CAN drive trial is being conducted.
Speaker 2: Mr Ken Kroeger, Chairman, Seeing Machines Ltd: What Seeing Machines are doing, and what have found so far.
Ken joined Seeing Machines in 2011 as CEO.  Under Ken’s leadership the company has been strategically transformed into a recognized industry leader in computer vision, eye-tracking and intervention safety products and services with leading customers such as Caterpillar.
Ken’s understanding of computer technology was honed at the North Alberta Institute of Technology. His experience as a technology entrepreneur came to the fore when he moved to Australia in the mid-1990s and co-founded 3D simulation and training provider Catalyst Interactive. Ken’s exposure to a wide range of industries, governments and defence/security agencies at an international level, has allowed him to develop a solid understanding of how technology can be applied to help people and organizations perform at a higher or safer level.
Speaker 3: Mr James Goodwin, Chief Executive Officer, Australasian New Car Assessment Program: How this work impacts ANCAP's safety rating system.
James Goodwin is a former journalist and news presenter with a professional career in corporate affairs and government relations. He has a particular interest in consumer advocacy and education, particularly in the areas of transport and safety as well as improving corporate governance in the not-for-profit sector.
Prior to joining ANCAP, Mr Goodwin held the position of Director - Government Relations & Communications at the Australian Automobile Association (AAA).   James also held a senior corporate affairs position with the industry body representing the interests of new car and motorcycle brands in Australia, the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI).
Q&A Session Facilitator: Mr Geoff Hurst, FIEAust, National President of the Risk Engineering Society.

Title: The Role of Fog Computing in IoT
Presenter: Dr. Rajkumar Buyya
Description:  In the next two decades, Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm will play an important role in transforming the industry, environment, and society. The requirement of supporting both latency sensitive and computing intensive Internet of Things (IoT) applications is consistently boosting the necessity for integrating Edge, Fog and Cloud infrastructure. Fog computing environments harness the edge network resources to support applications and deliver services for making decisions in real-time. These intelligent IoT applications are estimated to have an economic impact of $11 trillion per year by 2025 (equivalent of 11% of the world economy).
This keynote talk  presents: (a) architectural principles for Fog computing to harness edge resources, (b) algorithms for QoS-based provisioning of resources and scheduling of applications along with techniques for management of failures, and (c) a novel FogBus software framework with Blockchain-based data-integrity management for facilitating end-to-end IoT-Fog(Edge)-Cloud integration for execution of sensitive IoT applications, (d) a health-care application casestudy integrating finger pulse oximeter as IoT devices with Smartphone-based gateway and Raspberry Pi-based Fog nodes for Sleep Apnea analysis, and (e) future directions in Fog and Edge computing.
About the Presenter: Dr. Rajkumar Buyya is a Redmond Barry Distinguished Professor and Director of the Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Laboratory at the University of Melbourne, Australia. He is also serving as the founding CEO of Manjrasoft, a spin-off company of the University, commercializing its innovations in Cloud Computing. He served as a Future Fellow of the Australian Research Council during 2012-2016. He has authored over 625 publications and seven text books including "Mastering Cloud Computing" published by McGraw Hill, China Machine Press, and Morgan Kaufmann for Indian, Chinese and international markets respectively. He is one of the highly cited authors in computer science and software engineering worldwide (h-index=120, g-index=255, 76,800+ citations).  Dr. Buyya is recognized as a "Web of Science Highly Cited Researcher" in both 2016 and 2017 by Thomson Reuters, a Fellow of IEEE, and Scopus Researcher of the Year 2017 with Excellence in Innovative Research Award by Elsevier for his outstanding contributions to Cloud computing.
Software technologies for Grid and Cloud computing developed under Dr. Buyya's leadership have gained rapid acceptance and are in use at several academic institutions and commercial enterprises in 40 countries around the world. Dr.  Buyya has led the establishment and development of key community activities, including serving as foundation Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing and five IEEE/ACM conferences. These contributions and international research leadership of Dr. Buyya are recognized through the award of "2009 IEEE Medal for Excellence in Scalable Computing" from the IEEE Computer Society TCSC.
Manjrasoft's Aneka Cloud technology developed under his leadership has received "2010 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award". Recently, He served as the founding Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing. He is currently serving as Co-Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Software: Practice and Experience, which was established over 45 years ago.
