    Panel: Updating the Automotive Supply Chain for AVs
    The traditional automotive supply chain developed over 100 years to produce high quality, reliable products, dependably at low risk. But the model is shifting as new vendors and technologies enter, production cycles speed up, and technology iteration can happen in weeks not months. This panel will discuss the changes they have seen and those they are preparing for as cars move toward autonomy.
