Dr Henriette Cornet

Principal Investigator of Design for Autonomous Mobility

Henriette Cornet graduated from the Technical University of Troyes, France, as a Material Engineer in 2007. She worked at Technische Universit√§t M√ľnchen as a Research Associate from 2008 to 2011 and received her doctoral degree in 2012. The topic of her PhD thesis was the development of a sustainability screening tool for decision-making assistance in the field of urban mobility.

From 2011 to 2016, she worked as consultant for the automotive industry in Germany (BMW, Audi) within R&D projects about electro mobility and alternative fuels. She was also involved as project manager in several EU-funded projects about energy management.

In 2017, she joined TUM CREATE as Principal Investigator of Design for Autonomous Mobility (DAM).


11:15 AM Interactive Panel Discussion: Determining The Infrastructure Requirements That Are Crucial To Support Automated Driving

As automakers start to deploy more autonomous features, one of the biggest challenges faced in rolling out the technology will be to ensure that the supporting infrastructure is adequate and well-maintained. This will involve a commitment from the various stakeholders and government agencies to work together to plan and put in place the necessary road markings, communication systems, etc. In this discussion, panelists will:

  • Determine some of the infrastructure needed for the successfully deployment of autonomous vehicles
  • Discuss the challenges of putting in place these required infrastructure in Asia
  • Take a closer look at some of the existing regulatory policies that need to be changed
  • Examine the socio-economic impact on replacing existing infrastructure to accommodate autonomous vehicles
  • Discuss the development of a smart city that can incorporate autonomous vehicles

2:30 PM Leveraging Autonomous Vehicles for Public Transportation in Singapore

Over the past three years, several trials for autonomous mobility-on-demand services have been launched in Singapore, with the ultimate aim of creating safer roads with fewer accidents, lesser congestion and smoother traffic, increased mobility for the elderly and disabled, improved availability of on-demand car-sharing and to optimize parking space. This session looks at how autonomous vehicle technology will impact the future of public transportation in Singapore in order to create greener, safer and more efficient transportation in Singapore.
