On August 29th and September 26th Waymo and Formula Student Germany are hosting the first ever virtual FSG Driverless Workshop!
The virtual event is for students from North America and around the globe already building driverless vehicles or interested in developing these skills in the coming years. Participants will gain insights on simulation and how to make vehicles completely driverless from one of the world’s leading autonomous technology companies, and learn how to approach a wide array of Formula Student Driverless specific issues from several top Formula Student Driverless teams.
Thank you for attending the virtual FSG Academy powered by Waymo!
