In its second year, Drive World+ESC will return to Silicon Valley to bring together the brightest minds across automotive electronics, embedded systems, and IoT who shape the technology of tomorrow.

Illuminate the Road to Level 5 Autonomous Vehicles

Cars are getting smarter. But the shift to Level 5 autonomy will take time, testing, and, most of all, the technical chops to perfect the connected car at the component level. That means sensors, 5G, systems on chip, and other foundational elements that are the heart of the autonomous vehicle.

Come help accelerate the path to autonomous driving at Drive World+ESC.  Drive World, a must-attend event for electrical and mechanical engineers looking to grow in the automotive intelligence and advanced mobility industries. Combined with ESC, this conference provides attendees with industry-critical education in the heart of electronics innovation — Silicon Valley.
