“The Autonomous Passenger Vehicle has rapidly matured from a speculative concept to a reality that is quickly appearing within our sightlines. The progression that we have seen has come as a result of the work of both the traditional stakeholders and the emerging innovators. As the mainstay OEMs have been actively leveraging resources in R&D and manufacturing, emerging tech hub groundbreakers such as Google, Tesla, and Uber have proven they are capable of disrupting yet another established industry.

Autonomous Cars Silicon Valley 2016 takes IQPC’s Autonomous Technology Series to the backyard of innovation.  With the key stakeholders launching new R&D centers in the Palo Alto area and the new entrants to the automotive market leveraging their current capabilities to advance autonomy efforts, a new automotive hub has formed.  Silicon Valley will be hosting as we tailor the next iteration of Autonomous Cars to discuss the core components to successful business strategies as well as the biggest technical hurdles inhibiting progress.”
