Few technology innovations are creating as much buzz as autonomous vehicles—remarkably complex cars combining radar, LIDAR, GPS and vision to revolutionize transportation. As a global technology innovation hub, Boston is on the frontline of driving autonomous vehicles from concept to reality. Last October, Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and BostInno came together to host an Autonomous Vehicle State of Innovation event. One year later both return to host a second event to update the Boston innovation community on the technical, regulatory and business challenges surrounding these vehicles, as well as share insights on when fully autonomous vehicles will become a reality.
The autonomous driving event will take place on October 3 from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM at Analog Garage, ADI’s technology incubator. The event will feature a panel discussion moderated by Gabi Zijderveld, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Product Strategy at Affectiva. Panelists include:
- Chris Jacobs, VP of Autonomous Transportation and Automotive Safety at Analog Devices
- Sam Anthony, Co-Founder and CEO of Perceptive Automata
- Alexander Terzian, Founder of Robodisplay
- Anita Kim, Technology Policy Analyst at Volpe National Transportation Systems Center
The event is open to the public and tickets can be purchased in advance at https://www.eventbrite.com/autonomous-vehicles. Analog Devices is located at 125 Summer St. in Boston, conveniently located near Boston’s South Station. Parking is also available.
