Separating the Myth from the Reality for Autonomous Transport of People and Things

May 21

This month please join as we share a look into the near future with Dave Hofert, CMO of Perrone Robotics. Dave will be discussing how the hopes and fears of autonomous vehicles match up to the current and near-future state of autonomous technology. He’ll also talk about the emergence of this transformative technology and compare it to the advent of the “horseless carriage”, and how there are new opportunities beyond “a car that drives itself”. Dave will also review examples of the current work being conducted at Perrone. This journey into the near future will be both interesting and exciting and one you won’t want to miss! Make your plans today. RSVP to 434-823-9100 or Seating is limited.
