Our co-founder Phil Koopman was on a panel on the future of automotive
technology at the Annual OESA Suppliers Conference today. This is the
flagship conference of the automotive industry Original Equipment
Suppliers Association, which draws up to 1000 attendees.
Phil’s spoke about setting reasonable expectations about how much safety
benefit autonomous vehicles can provide in the near-term to mid-term.
Spoiler: when you hear that 94% of all road fatalities are caused by bad
