Driving AV Technology Forward for Citizens

Date TBA

No doubt you are aware of automated vehicle (AV) technology – benefits of which include lane assist, adaptive cruise control, and more - but do you know how governments and private industry are coordinating to safely bring the technology into everyday life? From training first responders, to responding to automated vehicle accidents, and ensuring automated delivery devices can deliver goods while sharing sidewalks and roads, public-industry collaborations are critical to driving the technology forward for citizens. In this session, PennDOT Secretary Yassmin Gramian, Raj Rajkumar, Director of Carnegie Mellon University's Metro21 Initiative, Bryan Salesky, founder, and CEO of Argo AI, and Jackie Erickson of Edge Case Research will share how they work together with communities and businesses.
