Anna Newberry - The Future Looks Driverless

Anna has been an automotive professional for 15 years with experience ranging from hybrids to driver assistance technologies such as adaptive cruise control and lane keeping aid. Having started her transport journey with a doctorate in an area which is now mostly defunct due to the shift in attention to autonomous vehicles, she knows how much things can change in a relatively short space of time.

Anna is currently between projects having left the driver assistance team at Ford Motor Company in Australia. She will be starting as a chassis manager at NIO in Silicon Valley shortly. Anna has a bachelors in mechanical engineering, and an engineering doctorate in steering feel, both from the University of Southampton, UK.
