Fully Autonomous Vehicles: Removing the front-seat driver
Panel on May 24th, Stanford Campus For more info: https://vlab.org/events/fully-autonomous-vehicles/
The automotive industry is bracing for a new surge of progress and opportunity, with billions of dollars on the line. The potential is huge. People have been dreaming about self-driving cars for decades, and recent sales have shown that consumers are willing to spend big bucks for this dream.
The final push to widespread availability of fully autonomous vehicles has begun. Testing has moved onto public roads, and in the next few years, several vendors plan to release autonomous vehicles in limited-use “Level 4” situations (taxis, transit companies, fleet operations, freeway-only driving). As the technology advances from “assisted driving” to true self-driving (Level 5) will be tailgating right behind.
Our panel, industry-leading startups, entrepreneurs, and investors will explore the technologies and challenges related to realizing the dream of a fully autonomous self-driving vehicle.
• Will small startups or large corporations have the inside track?
• How will we know when self-driving cars are safe enough?
• How will self-driving cars change our lifestyle?
