Started in 2012, the Open Garage Talk lecture series is our community event which brings together the Silicon Valley mobility community, automotive enthusiasts, startups and people interested in the mobility sector, autonomous vehicles, self-driving cars and the ways that we'll advance transportation in the future. The Stanford University Open Garage Talk series brings in luminaries to share their experiences and inspire students. Each event is hosted at Stanford's Automotive Innovation Facility and is free and open to the public.
