Equipment industry event set for April 20-22

Driverless cars (and equipment). The off-road equipment industry’s annual safety seminar.

Delphi’s technical director of automated driving, Serge Lambermont, will connect the dots between innovative product development and safety as opening keynote for the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) annual Product Safety & Compliance seminar.   

The AEM seminar is set for April 20-22 in St Louis, Missouri (Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark).

Delphi expert Serge Lambermont will focus on what’s more technically known as automated driving and full autonomous (self-driving) technology. Technology management includes sensory systems, computer platforms, electrical architecture, vehicle connectivity, user experience (and cyber security issues) to take into account, for example.

Product complexity will bring safety ramifications, and Lambermont will bring attendees up to speed.
