Advanced Mobility

Saturday, March 14
9:30AM - 10:30AM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon B
500 E 4th St


Today, there are technologies that allow semi-autonomous vehicle control, driving habit monitoring, ride sharing, etc. with the intent to increase safety, increase fuel economy, and increase vehicle utilization.
We have all heard about self-driving cars, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, and big data, but what’s the value? How soon will we see these technologies implemented? When will we see mass adoption? What will the future of mobility look like? Will OEMs adopt technological innovations from outside?

A panel of experts – investor, entrepreneur, and innovator – will talk about the future of mobility: new applications for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication and autonomous vehicles, challenges of cybersecurity, and opportunities for big data and new ownership models. The panel will also examine where future innovation will come from, how innovations will get to market and where there are opportunities for disruption in the transportation industry.
