Keynote Speaker

We're excited to announce that Jeff Swoboda from Roborace will be our keynote speaker this year.

Jeff Swoboda

At ROBORACE we are working to advance the acceptance of autonomous vehicles through our platform, and everything we do has to be relevant to that mission. Our inclusion of Metaverse in our race events is another way that we are incorporating contemporary AR technology into our competition platform and engaging fans. The collaborative work we do with industry leaders like Applanix is key to us being able to tackle these advanced challenges with our global engineering team.


Speakers have yet to be announced.
