5 Standout Sessions at the Conference

You're in good hands with a speaker list that includes experts from Google, Toyota, and SAE. Below are five must-attend sessions to add to any educational action plan.

Decomposition of an Autonomous Vehicle

Pull up a chair as we deconstruct the functional domains of an automated vehicle. We'll explore the base architecture before diving deeper into the hardware and software components that come together to create a functioning Level 2+ vehicle.
