Autonomous Vehicles: Not Business as Usual

Please join us for an evening to learn how the technological development of autonomous vehicles (AVs) is set to fundamentally transform the automaker’s 100 year old business model.

We are pleased to have Mr. Paul Godsmark, Chief Technology Officer of the Canadian Automated Vehicles Centre of Excellence (CAVCOE), review major AV developments, major partnerships and collaborations in the AV development space, as well as the business models that many players appear to be following. Consideration will also be given to cities, and how their goals and strategic planning will likely shape these new business models. Major assumptions around the incremental development of the current automotive sector paradigm will be challenged.

Networking: 5:30 p.m.
Dinner: 6:00 p.m.
Speaker: 7:15 p.m.

first-served basis only once payment is received.

We need to emphasize that this course is designed for EXPERIENCED FORENSIC
INVESTIGATORS who have a STRONG understanding of physics, trigonometry and
math related to accident reconstruction in addition to a working knowledge of
crash-related event data. Attendees will be expected to move through case
studies at a fast pace. This is NOT equivalent to an IPTM Level I or Level II course.
