The first panel, “ Teaching Vehicles to Think, Drive and Talk,” occurs on October 7, from 2:40 to 3:10 p.m., at the Vertical Stage 1, Za’abeel Hall 4. Gradu will provide information about how advanced sensor technologies generate massive amounts of data. The future AV will generate two petabits – about the same as two million gigabits of data.

The second panel, “ Driverless Vehicles will be Safe, Ready and Common on the Road by 2030,” occurs on October 8, from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. at the Future Mobility Conference, Sheikh Maktoum Hall. Gradu will discuss how lidar sensors are an essential component for fully autonomous vehicles and can significantly enhance ADAS capabilities.

Velodyne has more than a decade of experience in the manufacturing and validation of lidar sensors that support the stringent safety and reliability requirements of automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers. By developing a portfolio of smart, powerful sensors, Velodyne Lidar has established itself as a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of real-time lidar sensors.

“GITEX is a great opportunity to bring together some of the hundreds of companies and thousands of people working on AV and ADAS technologies,” said Gradu. “Velodyne is committed to fostering this industry’s efforts and learning experiences to help make our roadways safer – sooner, rather than later.”
