Connected-Vehicle Technology Keynote
When:October 31, 2012 - 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Where:Las Vegas Convention Center, Grand Lobby, Vehicle Technology Center
SEMA’s Connected-Vehicle Technology Keynote will be presented by Anthony Levandowski, product manager for Google’s Self-Driving Car Technology, on Wednesday, October 31, from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. in the VTC Theater.
While Google’s autonomous vehicles have been cruising the streets and highways of the San Francisco Bay Area for the past two years and have logged more than 250,000 miles, the goal isn’t to eliminate human driving but rather to make it safer. Autonomous and connected-vehicle technologies, combined with mobile and consumer electronics, have extended far beyond the vehicle itself. Cars that communicate with each other are already on the road, but what will it take to get consumers really interested in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) capabilities? This session will explore the market opportunities for V2V devices and services and help SEMA members understand how they can leverage new technologies and business opportunities in integrating consumer and automotive electronics.
This summer, the government is launching a yearlong test involving nearly 3,000 specially equipped cars, trucks and buses in Ann Arbor, Michigan. These vehicles sense each other wirelessly and warn their drivers about impending collisions, often before the other vehicle is in sight. In an even more extreme example, cars may someday soon drive themselves. As part of a pilot project, Google Inc. has equipped cars with sophisticated 360-degree sensors and computers that never get distracted or tired.
