 Erika Anden

“History of the Future: Road to Autonomy”

 

Erika Anden, COO of Crypteon Tech will  cover the history of autonomous mobility from DaVinci’s self-driving cart (1487) to the explosion of automated technologies that have been developed and released in the last fifteen years.

What you might find most interesting is the mid century component which dives fairly deeply in to General Motors’ contributions to automotive autonomy. Erika will talk at length about Futurama (the GM display from the ’39 World’s Fair) as well as, GM’s work with RCA on the automated highway system in the fifties and the Firebird program. The Firebirds of the ‘50s are best known as turbine concept cars, but the Firebird II and III were actually autonomous concept cars used to promote the autonomous highway program

Please let Conrad Lundberg, conradnhl@gmail.com know if you are coming.
