Autonomous Vehicles and the Future of Mobility
November 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10 – $20
TiE Seattle and Smart Mobility present: Autonomous Vehicles and the Future of Mobility
The tremendous hype for autonomous cars over the past few years has resulted in huge investments and valuations in companies like Waymo, Cruise, Aurora, Zoox and others. At the same time, autonomous tech is seeing real-world applications and benefits in warehouses, delivery, logistics, shuttles, grocery stores, construction/mining vehicles, drones and others. The tech involved is also helping significant improvements in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) as well as semi-autonomous driving such as the Tesla Autopilot and platooning.
This event will cover key innovations in 3d mapping, sensing, simulations, connectivity and data analytics as well as answer your questions as to how autonomous tech is driving the future of mobility.
