“Autonomous Vehicle Technology: Briefing and Demonstration”

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015
Briefing: 1:00 – 2:00pm

Hosted by AUVSI, in conjunction with the
Unmanned Systems Caucus

While we may be no closer to flying cars of Back to the Future or Star Trek’s teleportation, engineers are quickly unlocking the secrets to make another science fiction dream come true: the autonomous car. Systems like forward collision avoidance systems are already in use and improving highway safety. Join us for a discussion of the past, present, and future of autonomous car technology.
Following the briefing, please join us for a live demonstration hosted by Rosco and Mobileye of a bus equipped with active safety technologies. The demonstration has limited availability, so please RSVP to shawn.kimmel@mail.house.gov.
Panelists:
TORC Robotics – A small business specializing in the commercialization of unmanned ground vehicle technologies in the automotive, defense and mining markets and focused on improving protection, productivity and performance for our customers.
Mobileye – Supplier of camera based vehicle automation systems for vehicle OEMs, buses, and after-market systems.
