Date: May 19, 2017
Time: 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM EDT
Registration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.
Event Description:
North Carolina is leading the way in the development of smart cities and smart transportation technologies. One technology set to take center stage as the cities of the future emerge across our state is autonomous/automated vehicles. The Research Triangle Region is home to organizations making significant strides in all aspects of this technology from research to policy and even deployment.

The Triangle is poised to make significant headway in the development of these technologies as I-540 was recently selected as one of ten nationwide sites to test autonomous/autonomous vehicles.

Autonomous technologies are set to play an important role in transportation around the Triangle as the region continues to grow at one of the fastest rates in the country. Companies within and outside of the region are developing these technologies to address some of the challenges associated with growth (congestion, safety, and emissions) while also working to create new job opportunities in this space.

This is your chance to hear about current developments and future deployments from the influencers in the region.

Continental breakfast will be provided.

Speakers:
  • Moderator, John Hodges-Copple, Triangle J Council of Governments
  • Beau Memory, NC Turnpike Authority
  • Missy Cummings, Humans and Autonomy Laboratory, Duke University
  • John Breitenbach, Real-Time Innovations
