No fee to attend  |  Registration required

The development and future of connected and autonomous vehicles has the potential to fundamentally change transportation and impact everyone throughout our society. Could personal vehicle ownership go away some day in lieu of a network of public AV transports that take people wherever they wish to go? Learn how researchers and AV systems developers are seeking to understand how people view, adapt to and ultimately interact with our vehicles of the future and how AVs could improve mobility and accessibility, including for older drivers and people with disabilities.
