According to Velodyne LiDAR, by holding a summit to discuss autonomous technologies, it aims to increase understanding of the safety benefits that can be achieved with autonomous vehicles. The summit will cover discussions to explore ways to educate the public about autonomous technology to boost knowledge, address concerns and clarify issues.

“This first-ever World Safety Summit on Autonomous Technology provides participants with a forum for frank discussions about the direction of autonomous vehicles. It will also spark collaborative work that increases consumer awareness around how AV will revolutionize transportation,” said, Marta Hall, president and CBDO, Velodyne LiDAR.

Meanwhile, with the collaboration with MADD, Velodyne LiDAR has launched a website to explain the basics of autonomous driving and present how self-driving cars equipped with LiDAR technology can help to avoid accident caused by human errors.

“It’s time fully autonomous vehicles became the answer to reducing, preventing, and potentially entirely eliminating human error on the roadway. And it’s essential that the public is aware and educated about technology as a solution to the problem,” stated Sally Frykman, Velodyne LiDAR’s Director of Education and Business Development.
