Education of future specialists in the field of automated and autonomous vehicles

The implementation of automated and autonomous vehicles affects the demand - from the automotive industry - for employees with specific competences, especially in the area of technology and software. The current level of development and implementation of autonomous vehicles in Poland still requires many years of work, so it is important to educate specialists who will contribute to overcoming the barriers related to their implementation.

CK:PAP expert Dr. Eng. Mikołaj Kruszewski was a guest of editor Wiktor Niedzicki on the CiekaWizja YouTube channel. The conversation concerned various aspects of the implementation of automated and autonomous driving, including the benefits, but also the doubts raised by the new technology in drivers and other road users.


Driver education as an opportunity to properly use technologies that automate driving

Raising the awareness and level of knowledge among drivers and candidates for drivers in the use of driving automation systems will ensure proper and safe interaction between a human and a vehicle. Traffic participants, and above all drivers, should know the principle of operation of individual systems (especially those installed in their vehicles) and know when their operation may be disrupted.
