Beyond 60: From connected to autonomous. Understanding the road ahead to self-driving cars. 
60th Anniversary Community Lecture Series

Rapid advancements in technology will soon make autonomous transportation options a reality. In fact, many autonomous options exist today. Come learn about self-driving vehicles and how convergence of the automotive and information technology sectors is fast tracking advancements in how we move.

The University of Waterloo's Centre for Automotive Research (WatCAR) has developed such a car and is the first organization approved for autonomous operation of a vehicle on public roads in Canada. WatCAR Managing Director Ross McKenzie will provide an introduction to autonomous driving, map out the road ahead and take your questions.

Plan to join us for a lively, informative discussion. Discussion will be moderated by Judy Maddren, former CBC host. 

Presented in partnership by the University of Waterloo Stratford Campus and Stratford Public Library.
