Tech.AD USA 2018: Defining the Future of Automated Driving

The fifth edition of the award-winning Tech.AD USA was once again a great success! More than 200 of the leading autonomous vehicle technical experts gathered in Detroit in November to network, exchange knowledge and shape the future of the autonomous driving. Over 3 jam-packed days, attendees saw innovative case studies, networking sessions, a start-up innovation lab, as well as an Autonomous Driving Day, Icebreaker and best practices and much, much more!

With keynotes on functional safety, machine learning, deployment scenarios, embedded computer vision, integration of human driver behavior and 4D imaging radar with open modular architecture or situational awareness in autonomous vehicles as well as photonic technologies in automotive LiDAR, one thing became clear: autonomous vehicles will revolutionize the future of mobility.

Another highlight was the launch of the Tech.AD USA Award. The winner being Algolux for their CANA full-stack deep neural network (DNN). This was recognized by our international autonomous vehicle development community as the ‘Most Innovative Autonomous Driving Solution’.

Shaping the future of Automated Driving in 2019
Tech.AD USA is coming back to Detroit on November 21– 22, 2019. Be part of the thought-provoking discussion and the fastest growing business community for autonomous vehicles.
