Event description

Description

The 2018 Edison Lecture Series will take place on Friday, February 9 at The University of Texas at Austin's new Engineering Education and Research building.

The Edison Lecture Series engages middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering. Edison attendees learn the fundamentals of an engineering topic through a university-style lecture, then see these concepts come to life through hands-on demos.

The 2018 lecture topic is Autonomous Vehicles. It has become easy to imagine a world in which no human need apply for a driving license. This year's Edison lecture will examine issues ranging from superhuman sensing to computer vision, navigation and much more ... all with an eye towards enabling autonomous roadways in the near future. Be part of the excitement!


AGENDA

Lecture Session A: 10 AM - 11 AM
Lecture Session B: 11 AM - 12 PM
Lecture Session C: 12 PM - 1 PM

All of the lectures are the same. Register to attend whichever is most convenient for your group, then be sure to browse the demos in our exhibit hall, which will be open from 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM!

The Edison Lecture Series is brought to you by The University of Texas at Austin Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Edison has reached over 28,000 Central Texas students since its inception in 2005.
