Science on Tap - The History and Future of Automated Driving
Speaker: Dr. Dan McGehee (Director, National Advanced Driving Simulator; Associate Professor, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering)
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.
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.
Light entrees, snacks, and refreshments will be available for purchase from the Stanley Café.
This event is sponsored by the Research Development Office in the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development.
