Frost & Sullivan shared the podium with Oxford University at the "Cars of the Future" seminar that took place at its Sad Business School earlier last week. Partner Dorman Followwill gave a presentation on Frost & Sullivan's vision of the developments that will drive the world towards safer and more autonomous automotive solutions. Frost & Sullivan was invited alongside Professor Paul Newman, Department of Engineering Science at Oxford, and Mr Peter Day, BAE Systems.

Speaking before an audience of 150 people from both the business and academic communities, Mr Followwill talked about the transport system and how this will develop during the coming years.

"The ubiquitous use of embedded sensors will enable the integration of passenger car driving dynamics, driver assistance and comfort technologies by roughly 2015," explained Mr Followwill. "This will yield the critical vehicle systems necessary for semi-autonomous and autonomous driving solutions in the next 5-15 years. Furthermore, the urban mobility system of the future will open significantly new applications across both the driver and driverless landscape."

Frost & Sullivan's vision of the rich IT and sensor-fusion infrastructure necessary as the enabling context of the driverless car was seriously debated by Professor Paul Newman, Department of Engineering Science at Oxford. The academic posited the view that the future of the driverless car could actually be infrastructure free given the state of robotics software currently being researched and deployed by Professor Newman's team, in collaboration with BAE Systems, in a driverless vehicle on display both before and after the seminar. In fact, the role of unmanned vehicles will further expand within the defence sector initially, before crossing over eventually to the consumer sector.

The seminar concluded that the groundbreaking robotic software and technology will require additional support from both public and private entities to make the world of the driverless car a safe reality in the future.

The event was organised by Oxford Centre of Entrepreneurship and Innovation as part of series titled "Oxford at Sad".

Mr Followwill's presentation is now available on SlideShare.
