PAVE Virtual Panel: Automotive Grade and Beyond

PAVE Virtual Panel: Automotive Grade and Beyond

Because the public contextualizes “technology” with things like smartphones and social media, it’s not always understood that cars are engineered to a much more rigorous standard of robustness and reliability than consumer electronics… or that driverless vehicles have even tougher requirements. In this PAVE virtual panel, we explain what “automotive grade” means, why it exists, what it takes to qualify new technologies to that level, and the redundancy and other demands that driverless vehicles make above and beyond automotive grade.



  • Dr. Derek Caveney – Executive Engineer, Toyota Motor North America
  • Dr. Reinhard Ernst – Senior Manager for ADAS Validation, ZF Group
  • Jordan Greene – Co-founder and VP of Corporate Development, AEye
  • Dr. Gunnar Juergens – VP and Head of Lidar, Continental

You can view recordings of all of PAVE’s virtual panels on the PAVE YouTube channel.
