Challenges on sensor data fusion & embedded artificial intelligence to build
the onboard contextual safety sphere of vehicle occupant – AD use cases

– AD use cases pushed the development of a vast amount of biometrics sensors that are intended to provide driver information for safety purposes, such as machine triggered decisions
– AD regulation imposes a deterministic handling of output state vectors to trigger machine decisions as liabilities are engaged
– AI or machine learning techniques used for output vector generations are intrinsically non-deterministic
– Challenges ahead for embedded applications of sensors, fusions, and decisions based on them vs AD regulation
