Sensors and nearly nothing else - at the Sensor Expo in San Jose.

Sensors Expo & Conference (#Sensors17) one of the nation's leading event focusing exclusively on sensors and sensor-integrated systems, announced details of a new Automotive & Autonomous Vehicle Sensors Workshop to take place on Wednesday, June 28. The half day workshop will feature a series of panel discussions focusing on sensors and their role in automotive and autonomous vehicles. In addition, the Autotech Council will host a “Startup Review” to highlight new and exciting startups in the automotive sensing industry on Wednesday, June 28.

As the autonomous vehicle movement gains momentum, sense technologies are playing an integral role in enabling Advance Drive Assistance System (ADAS) features - the building blocks to autonomous driving capabilities. As sensors like LiDAR, Radar, and Cameras become more cost-effective, vehicle OEMs are offering more ADAS features to the market. Panelists during the workshop will also discuss advances in machine learning and software solutions and trends among processing, CPUs and analysis.

Also new this year, the Autotech Council will host a “Startup Review,” featuring a handpicked selection of companies poised to shake up the automotive industry. These entrepreneurs will share their vision for the future of the vehicle and mobility industry.
