Autonomous Vehicles Silicon Valley 2022 Summit

February 22-24, 2022- Santa Clara, CA, United States

The World's Leading Autonomous Vehicles Silicon Valley Event Returns to California after a Two-Year Hiatus, More Focused Than Ever Before!

With an agenda 100% driven by industry-intelligence, and a speaker line-up led by first-movers and thought-leaders from the entire AV ecosystem, the February 2022 event is geared to deliver solutions on the timeliest AV themes, industry challenges and pain points.

Where is the AV Industry Right Now?

If we think about where we are in the hype curve with autonomous vehicles, the industry is picking up again. We are through the valley of disillusionment and heading back up the other side. There is substantial funding available by federal governments for pilots and a tremendous amount of investment in going into this space. There is now also an accelerated drive and desire for automated trucking, logistics and last mile delivery. And while some companies hunkered down during the pandemic, others got serious, rolled out pilots and came up with deployable use cases.

The topic of discussion shifted from...'Will AVs Happen?' to 'What will it take to Productionize AVs?'

Our 11th Autonomous Vehicles Silicon Valley 2022 has been researched and restructured to reflect the diversity and changing pace of the AV industry, and is designed to address the industry's most important deployment, productionization, safety and performance challenges.

Focusing on metrics that matter the most right now, the event gives you the opportunity to look where we headed, share practical strategies, novel areas of opportunity and gaps where the industry needs to do course correction.
