Welcome to the next Silicon Valley Robotics Influencer Salon, hosted at electronics (including autonomous car) manufacturer Tempo Automation. This salon looks at self driving technologies and asks experts, 'What's ready to roll out? And what's not?'

Self driving technology is fueling the current wave of robotics investments and acquisitions (ie Cruise Technologies to GM at $1billion) and launching a new crop of startups across cars, trucks, planes, boats, drones, and even delivery robots.
But are we really there yet? We ask a panel of industry experts to tell us where the roadblocks are, and where are the next market opportunities. We may even hear about some 'stealthy' startups that aren't public knowledge yet :)
Silicon Valley Robotics is the not-for-profit industry group supporting innovation and commercialization of robotics technologies. As these salons are usually sell out events, we can offer full refunds for tickets up to one week prior to the event.
