Gaurav Garg & Komal Shah Distinguished Lecture 
featuring Chris Urmson, CEO, Aurora

"Delivering the Benefits of Self-Driving Technology ‚Ä®Safely, Quickly and Broadly"


The introduction of self-driving vehicles is among the most technologically complex and far-reaching issues engineers face. The question is no longer, "will we ever live in a world with self-driving vehicles" rather it's "how quickly will they be here and what will our lives be like when they are?" Chris will recap the synergistic changes that are occuring simultaneously within the automotive industry that have the potential to reduce important social costs: electric cars; ride-sharing; and self-driving technology. 

A reception will be held at 4:30 p.m. with the presentation starting at 5 p.m.

Attendees are asked to RSVP by Feb. 15 to engineering.alumni@wustl.edu.
