Autonomous Vehicles Detroit 2020 Conference

Detroit, MI, United States

The Infrastructure and Technologies enabling AVs in the Public Domain

The leading technical conference for autonomous innovators, Autonomous Vehicles Detroit 2019, the 9th event in this successful annual series, gathered 250+ industry experts on site to discuss the challenges in the testing, validation, simulation and safety of self-driving vehicles. Our delegates from 2019 enjoyed "a huge breadth of engaging topics" (Executive Director, PlanetM) and a "great onsite experience" (Systems Engineer, APTIV).

Autonomous Vehicles Detroit 2020, once again, is bringing you the cutting edge in autonomous technology, the latest use cases for real-world application of AVs and all key stakeholders involved in building out the infrastructure to support and rollout this technology.

Highlights from 2019 included:

  • Thinking through the Use Cases of Autonomous Vehicles: Learning how AVs can impact fleet owners during our Domino's Case Study, "Autonomy beyond Personal Mobility: Why Last Mile Logistics will Change Retail as we know it" presented by Cosimo Leipold, Head of Partner Relations, Nuro.
  • Bosch Ride and Drive: Attendees learned how Bosch's Vehicle Motion and Position Sensors System enhances vehicles localization by providing a highly accurate position within centimeters.
  • The Start Up Launchpad: Congratulations to HAAS Alert for winning our Inaugural Start-Up Launchpad! Their impressive collision prevention for emergency fleets and road operators floored our judges, proving social impact (and a strong business case). Curious to learn more? Visit them on-site at Autonomous Vehicles Silicon Valley in Feb 2020.
  • American Center for Mobility Site Tour: We got to see the future of autonomous vehicles first hand, meet with colleagues testing the cutting edge in self-driving vehicles, and hear about the latest technologies being implemented.
