MAX Series Episode 5: Workforce of the Future Supporting Secure Vehicle System Technologies

Tue 20 Oct 2020


New transport technologies such as cooperative ITS and connected-and-automated vehicles (CAV) serve to create “systems of systems”: vehicles, drivers, infrastructure and end users. System performance is dependent on effective connectivity, placing the spotlight on staff training and management - for procurement, deployment, operation and maintenance of complex new sub-systems and components.

In the case of sensors used in automated vehicles, frequent updates may be required and sensitivities to environment, and patterns of use and abuse, need to be understood. Vulnerabilities to intrusive or malicious attack need to be addressed, both in terms of implementation of adequate cybersecurity solutions, as well as awareness and behavior of staff at all levels.

Early adoption of CAV in fleets – including ride services, personal services, freight vehicles and last-mile delivery – will require middle skills in all of the above areas. At the same time, an increasing reliance on data systems and analytics requires upskilling in fleets for both light vehicles and heavy vehicles. This session will focus on understanding the new level of institutional capability required with new-technology vehicles that need to be aware of their surroundings and respond to external operational scenarios.
