FAST-zero’21 will be held in Kanazawa, a historical place of Japan after the successful 5th symposium in Blacksburg, Virginia. Following the tradition of FAST-zero symposia, we will bring together researchers and engineers from industry and academia to present the current state-of-the art and progress in research and development of active safety technologies. Innovation in the field of active safety is the key driving force towards the ultimate goal of realizing zero traffic-accidents. Researchers around the world have been investigating methods for active safety to reduce and possibly eliminate the number of traffic accidents as well as road fatalities. Especially, automated and connected vehicles have the potential to enhance safety through new sensors, dynamic map, artificial intelligence and other technologies that have experienced a great improvement in the last years. The organizers are looking forward to your contribution and to seeing you at FAST-zero’21.
