The safety of self-driving car prototypes and semi-autonomous driving features is being questioned like never before following several fatal collisions. At this event, we will explore the technical and operational challenges that need to be solved before self-driving cars can navigate streets safely. Attendees will hear from and speak to experts on key tech, business and policy issues. More details here.
Breakout session descriptions can be found here. Topics include: engineering methods; business models; where startups have opportunities (and where they don’t); simulation for training driving algorithms; prediction software; hardware (including sensors, microchips and developer kits); and how to validate that the tech is safe for public use.
