SUMMARY

Neda Cvijetic, Senior Vice President of Autonomous Driving at Stellantis, joined Russell Kaplan, Scale’s Director of Engineering, for a fireside chat. The two will discussed the role of data diversity in building safer autonomy, and Cvijetic shared highlights from her career building autonomous vehicles at Tesla, NVIDIA, and now Stellantis, the parent company of Dodge, Fiat, and Chrysler.

Cvijetic explained the opportunities that arise while building an entirely new infrastructure for training models for autonomous vehicles at a large automotive OEM, without the hindrance of having to support legacy systems. She also discussed how she plans to achieve Stellantis’s publicly shared goals around Level 3 autonomy in 2024. The Stellantis portfolio includes Jeep, meaning its systems will also handle off-road scenarios. Kaplan and Cvijetic also covered core paradigms in autonomous vehicles, from mapping to deploying to a million-vehicle fleet, to large language models, with more than a few surprising real-world anecdotes.

Prior to Stellantis and NVIDIA, Cvijetic worked on autopilot and infotainment systems at Tesla, served on the adjunct faculty of Columbia University, and held senior research positions at NEC Labs America. She holds more than 20 U.S. patents.
