Developments in the area of automated driving are perhaps creating one of the most attractive professional fields for multi-talented individuals. For anyone who still hasn’t found their calling, whether it’s because so many professions seem so fascinating or that none of them feels like the right fit, this may be the perfect solution. Artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, computer vision – these are all areas of this field that require technical understanding, and abstract thinking, as well as a high degree of sensitivity and a feel for the human factor. It’s also a particularly attractive field for women, because they can help balance out the user scenarios, which are more likely to centre on men than women as a result of male-dominated development teams.
