Join us for a seminar with Dr. James Peng which will focus on how autonomous vehicles are impacting and transforming the automotive industry and possibly other areas around ground transportation industries. With autonomous vehicles, there are a new set of industry players that may be poised to disrupt the existing old guard.  The evolution of self-driving vehicles is also revealing major shifts in the global center of gravity of the automotive industry — toward Asia.  This seminar will share perspectives on how these trends appear at present and how they may evolve in the future.
