Self-driving vehicles have been in development for years and often in recent news as the possibility becomes a reality. Join the Gorge Tech Alliance to hear from Kary Schaefer, General Manager of Marketing and Strategy for Daimler Trucks North America, about the amazing breakthroughs Daimler is bringing to the transport industry. How do self-driving trucks “see” and make decisions? How does the driver interact with the system? What does this technology mean for the future of freight movement and how will it impact consumers? Join us to learn all this and more!

Kary Schaefer’s career has involved years of innovation with Daimler, as well as a few years as Director of Engineering with Cloud Cap Technology in Hood River. We are pleased to welcome Kary back to the Gorge.
