AFTERNOON BREAKOUT SESSIONS: 15:15 – 16:15 (3:15pm – 4:15pm EST)

 

STANDARDS COOPERATION

Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Room #101

15:15 – 16:15 (3:15pm – 4:15pm EST)

As manufacturers and suppliers look toward the connected and autonomous future, one looming question remains: what will the regulators do? Success or failure for many companies and the ease of adoption by the public may depend on whether or not governments in the U.S. and abroad adopt a single, unified standard for mobility components and use, or if each state and nationality adopts their own, creating a national and international patchwork.

HUMAN-MACHINE INTERFACE

Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Room #102

15:15 – 16:15 (3:15pm – 4:15pm EST)

While some manufacturers and developers work on producing vehicles with no pedals or steering, others see this as foolhardy for bypassing several other important steps in the evolution of self-driving technology. Who is right? How should connected and autonomous cars be structured, and are we even conceiving of the technologies in the right way? The Human-Machine Interface breakout session will explore these topics with leading experts in the field.

DELIVERING CONNECTIVITY

Walter E. Washington Convention Center

15:15 – 16:15 (3:15pm – 4:15pm EST)

High tech communications networks are essential to the transportation ecosystem as advanced technologies that deliver services and features to enhance the consumer experience, reduce traffic congestion, improve safety, and generate data-driven revenue are being deployed. This panel will explore what next generation network technologies and connectivity is needed to unleash the full potential of intelligent transportation, and what smart spectrum policies are needed to advance these innovations. Speakers will also discuss how we ensure we’re taking full advantage of connectivity in the vehicle; what 5G vs DSRC means to ITS, and how increased connectivity and the demands on data effect the network, as more vehicles and infrastructure become connected.
