Data and the Future of Mobility
Presented by the Congressional Privacy Caucus & Future of Privacy Forum 8:55 am | East Salon
Many of the new features that enhance safety and convenience in today’s vehicles are enabled by the collection and sharing of data, putting the topic of privacy in connected cars on the agenda of industry, policymakers, and regulators. Advancing sensible practices will be essential to ensure that the collection and use of this data is responsible, thoughtful, and communicated effectively to consumers. In this session, policy leaders will reflect on the opportunities and the privacy considerations arising from the data in today’s mobility technologies.

Communicating the Benefits of Advanced Technologies to New Vehicle Buyers
Wednesday, April 3 Washington Convention Center | Ballroom C 12:00 noon – 2:00 pm
This luncheon panel, produced in conjunction with SAE International and NADA, will discuss the perception and communication challenges faced by dealerships and manufacturers when they try to communicate the benefits of today’s rapidly evolving technologies (electric drive, safety, autonomy, etc.) to consumers. The discussion will share buyer perspectives and explore solutions to help consumers better understand and value these options. Increased market demand or these technologies can lessen the need for vehicle incentives, improve dealership profitability, ease the compliance burden for OEMS, and ultimately help the auto industry meet societal, environmental, and safety objectives.

5G vs. DSRC
Wednesday, April 3 Washington Convention Center | Room #102 3:30 pm – 4:20 pm
Connected vehicles (CVS) use wireless signals to communicate with other vehicles (V2V) and with infrastructure (V2I) to relay and process important information about speed, trajectory, and roadway conditions. The vehicles can use the information to help avoid crashes, navigate around congestion, and smooth traffic. Eventually, CVs promise to help make automated vehicle technology more efficient and safer. The CV policy debate is how to connect them. This panel will explore whether the technology has reached a point where policymakers can proceed with one over another, if sharing the spectrum, currently reserved for DSRC, between both technologies a viable option, and other issues critical to the debate.
