Tuesday's Highlights

Day 2's Keynote steered us into the future of autonomous driving thanks to Ryan McMichael from Zoox. To hear more about how the future of autonomous driving is impacting vehicles, especially their sensor systems, you can catch the on-demand version of this session here.

Aside from that Keynote, there were plenty of interesting Live Sessions available on demand this week. You can check out presentations like Rohde and Schwarz's "From Design to Real RF Device - Connecting EDA Simulation and Hardware Test" and how to "Protect your Electronics Assets from Intruders" by Eaton any time.

Even though it's the halfway mark of Industry Tech Days, don't worry, we still have much more to share between today and the end of the week. Also, we have a filtering system of our event content to help you navigate by conference track. Have fun!
