Building an ADAS test and development environment in the cloud

This session will focus on the key Azure Cloud services needed to meet the demanding end-to-end requirements of testing and validating autonomous driving vehicles: from large-scale data ingestion (PB), to large-scale simulations (60,000+ cores) using high-performance computing (HPC), to scalable machine learning model creation, deployment and management. The presentation will share real-world experience of successfully building this platform for major OEMs and tier suppliers.
