How Lidar Solutions Advance Roadway and Supply Chain Efficiency

At the XPONENTIAL conference, Christina Aizcorbe, Velodyne’s Vice President of Government Affairs, will speak on a panel on the commercialization of automated trucking. Mrs. Aizcorbe will discuss how current automated trucking deployments are not just proving out a theoretical concept. They are bringing critical and credible real-world data which will support expansion, making the benefits that will come with commercialization very real to U.S. consumers. Innovation in freight and cargo movement will also spur economic growth well beyond trucking.

The session, called “What Does the Commercialization of Automated Trucking Look Like? – Part 2,” takes place on April 25 from 2:50 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. EDT at Room S330A/B.

“We are seeing rapid growth in automation across other parts of the supply chain, like the use of the same advanced sensing technologies used in automated driving systems to improve efficiency in warehouse and logistics operations, and port automation. Lidar technology is essential to ensuring sensor redundancy and around the clock safe performance of these systems,” said Mrs. Aizcorbe.
