Our October meeting was a special dinner event at Lucca Restaurant discussing the planning, development, and adoption of autonomous vehicles in northern California. The approximately 35 attendees were treated to a delicious dinner and wide ranging conversation regarding this topic. The questions ranged from “What’s the biggest lie being told about autonomous vehicles” to “Why is this topic important anyway?”
