ITE + ARRB Present Driverless Vehicles: Progress in the U.S. and Australia Webinar

Category: In the Know

Course Description:

Driverless vehicles have the potential to revolutionize transportation.  Initial products are being brought to market and trials of a wide variety of more advanced automated, connected and driverless vehicles are underway. Business models are rapidly evolving with technology and new mobility companies entering the marketplace and, in some cases partnering, with the traditional automakers.  Legislative and policy changes are beginning to emerge with calls for faster and more comprehensive efforts. This webinar is designed to provide you with insight into the latest trends in the industry.  Our presenters will cover developments in both the United States and Australia allowing participants to compare and contrast what is happening in different parts of the world.  This webinar represents the first collaboration between the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) and the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) in an effort to enhance the professional development offerings and extend the reach of both organizations.
