Mr. John Smith

Job title



This presentation and panel discussion explore how a strong link between testing and simulation is required as the development of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) progresses and moves away from human drivers.

Hajar Mousannif, of Cadi Ayyad University, Morocco set the scene with a presentation entitled Real-time road crash prediction and AI-based driving behaviour analysis

The panel, moderated by Ouafae El Ganaoui Mourlan, FISITA DVP Education and Chair on Electric, Connected, and Autonomous Vehicle for Smart Mobility at IFP School consisted of:

  • Nadine Leclair, FISITA President
  • Cecile Pera, Founder and Director of OROVEL Ltd
  • Patricia Villoslada, CEO Transdev Autonomous Transport Systems

The panel considered how unifying the results obtained from testing and simulation will facilitate the development of future powertrains by quickly delivering efficient engines. Thus, enabling car manufacturers to virtually test new designs in different scenarios, to see how they will affect driving emissions, avoiding the need for parts design and physical testing.

This event was held in support of INWED 2021 (International Women in Engineering Day) organised by FISITA Strategic Partner WES (Women Engineering Society)
