In this installment of the Future Grind podcast, host Ryan O’Shea sits down with Paul Platte, Senior Marketing Manager at Covestro. Covestro is a Bayer spinout and one of the leading producers of high-performance polymers. Their products can be found almost everywhere, and they are a major supplier to the automotive, electronics, and healthcare industries. Now, however, self-driving cars are taking up much of Covestro’s attention. On December 3rd, 2018, they’ll be holding a summit, titled RoadTrip 2030, in Pittsburgh. The day-long conference will feature many of the innovators that are working to build the autonomous vehicles of tomorrow, including Uber’s Advanced Technologies Group, Carnegie Mellon University, and more.
