The University of Iowa

Science on Tap

The History and Future of Automated Driving

Presented by
UI Research Development Office
Thursday, December 7, 2017, 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm

Science is brewing at Hancher’s Stanley Café! Science on Tap is an informal forum for UI researchers to engage the campus and the local community in a discussion of science in a fun and inviting atmosphere. Please join us December 7 from 5:30-6:30 pm for Science on Tap during the weekly Thursday Nights at Hancher program.

This talk will discuss the history of automation in vehicles. While the Google car steals many headlines, some parts of driving have been automated for decades. How these technologies have matured over the years paint an interesting story—one that the University of Iowa has been part of for 25 years.  

Speaker: Dr. Dan McGehee (Director, National Advanced Driving Simulator; Associate Professor, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering)

Light entrees, snacks, and refreshments will be available for purchase from the Stanley Café.
