Autonomous Vehicles Plus
A Critical Analysis of Challenges Delaying AV Nirvana
Autonomous Vehicles Plus: A Critical Analysis of Challenges Delaying AV Nirvana
is a valuable compendium of information for autonomous vehicle (AV) industry professionals. The book offers a critical analysis of this emerging technology and business models through a holistic and multi-faceted discussion by a consultant who has done extensive research of underlying technologies.
Among other things, Autonomous Vehicles Plus provides an independent and comprehensive viewpoint of the history and basic technology concepts of AVs, along with an explanation of their artificial intelligence underpinning, architectural framework, and key components. Here is all the minutiae on driverless cars, including the challenges facing the industry, predictions for their future, advice for entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on their emerging importance, and the roiling confusion that attends it all.
Autonomous vehicle industry professionals and those seeking a broad understanding of the emerging technology will find much to distract and delight them in this serious book. Autonomous Vehicles Plus will be of special interest to technology and business development professionals who want to understand the fundamentals that determine technology adoption.
Chander Dhawan is a leading expert in the technologies underlying autonomous vehicle space. He is well versed in a range of complementary industries, including mobile computing, wireless networks, and information technology infrastructure in large enterprises. His half century of professional experience—including a dozen years with IBM—include stints as consultant, entrepreneur, innovation expert, author, and industry analyst. He was also the

Chander has architected, designed and implemented some of the most complex network-based IT solutions in the public-sector, law-enforcement, transportation, airline and financial-services industries. He has spoken in industry conferences and has been involved in research collaboration between wireless industry and academia in an international setting.
Now retired from active professional work, Chander keeps his eye on emerging technologies from his Toronto home, where he lives with his wife, Bina. He is proud of his family - his two bright daughters and four bright grandchildren. He sees in them enthusiasm for adopting AVs, hope for humanity’s technological progress, and personal encouragement to keep contributing professionally.
