Velodyne Lidar is hosting the second annual World Safety Summit on Autonomous Technology at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA, October 2, 2019. The event is free, but we encourage you to RSVP by clicking here.
In the spirit of collaboration, the event brings together business, government, public safety, and community leaders to share a broad range of perspectives and creative solutions to address safety issues and public concern regarding autonomous vehicles (AV).
The second annual World Safety Summit planning is well under way. The agenda is designed to promote stimulating conversations that advance understanding of the safety benefits that can be achieved with AV and spark collaborative work that increases consumer awareness around how AV will revolutionize transportation.
The keynote speakers will include Chris Urmson, Co-founder and CEO at Aurora and Mark Rosekind, Chief Safety Innovation Officer at Zoox. Among the organizations and companies participating in the summit will be SAE, Zoox, Waymo, Aurora, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, AutonomouStuff, the PAVE coalition, and more. During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to ride in autonomous vehicles and visit informational displays and booths.
“The second annual World Safety Summit provides a forum for clear public explanations, and frank discussions regarding the direction of authentic autonomy while promoting consumer transparency and practices,” said Marta Hall, President and CBDO, Velodyne Lidar. “Through this dialogue, we believe we can advance the potential of autonomous vehicles, thereby reducing damage caused by the 94 percent of collisions currently resulting from human error.”
Last year, more than 300 people attended the inaugural World Safety Summit and we expect this year’s attendance to be much larger. To sign up to attend this year’s free event, go to the summit website here.
