How Self-Driving Cars Will Remake Cities

Monday, March 14
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Westin Austin Downtown
Continental 1-2
310 E 5th ST


Every day, thousands of cars, trucks and buses converge on cities around the world, including Austin, causing traffic, accidents and air pollution. Imagine if a majority of these vehicles were autonomous or even semi-autonomous and could move the masses through urban areas safer and more efficiently than with human drivers in control. While this may seem like science fiction, self-driving technology is progressing faster than anyone ever imagined and is getting closer to reality. In this panel, a pair of autonomous car and mobility experts will peek into the future for a vision of what an autonomous-driving urban experience will look like and what it will take to make robo-cars a reality.
