World Safety Summit

On Autonomous Technology


Join the World Leaders in Autonomous Technology

It is with pleasure that Velodyne LiDAR, Inc. invites you to the inaugural World Safety Summit on Autonomous Technology to address safety issues and public concern in the realm of autonomous vehicles. Your unique perspectives and creativity will help make this a successful collaboration.

This summit will address the potential for increased roadway safety by articulating a clear view of the autonomous vehicle landscape as well as a dynamic vision for the future. It will provide an occasion for clear explanations and frank discussions regarding the direction of authentic autonomy and collaborative work with partners to promote consumer transparency and good practices. In doing so, we believe we can advance the potential of autonomous vehicles reducing the damage done by the 93% of collisions caused by human error.

We look forward to your participation in the summit and the positive effect it will have.

With kind regards,

Defining Full Autonomy and Its Necessary Technologies Panel

In order to enable autonomous vehicles on the roadways, consumers, regulators, and industry must come together to create a pathway forward. We know that autonomous vehicles can be a solution to the global crisis of traffic fatalities, so it is essential that collaborative work is being done in a way that all parties are comfortable in enabling deployment of autonomous vehicles. Panelists will address how we can work together to make this happen so that we can begin to realize the social, economic, and environmental benefits of autonomous vehicles.

Responsible Autonomous Vehicle Deployment Panel

It is essential to provide clarity, transparency, and education about autonomous vehicle technology to the public. The public is confused and fearful of the technology due to a lack of understanding because they are receiving hype as well as muddled messages in the press and media. This panel will discuss the technologies necessary in achieving true autonomy to advance safety on the roadways. Furthermore, it will address the question: how can the message about autonomy and advanced safety be more clear, understandable, and by doing so, be more reassuring?
