We had a good time at the OGRA (Ontario Good Roads Association) conference at the Fairmont Royal York hotel yesterday where we presented an industry point of view for self driving vehicles and the driver’s in-cabin experience expectations.
Two other presenters joined us, one from the WATCar program from the University of Waterloo presenting self driving technology research, as well as the head of the ITS division of the Ministry of Transportation Ontario (MTO) representing a regulation point of view.
The room was packed with mayors and counsellors from villages, towns and cities from all across Ontairo. It was standing room only with attendees also lining the outer walls to hear the talk. Our Brainiac kiosks and our promotional video were on display at the back of the room beside the self driving vehicle demonstration track.
