The Evolution of Vehicle Safety: The Intersection of Automation and Human Behavior

Session Description

Technological innovation in transportation automation over the coming decades offers a promise to disrupt how we live and move. The ability of society to adapt to the pace of change is being increasingly challenged. How will we safely transition drivers, and other road users, into a mixed fleet environment?  How can urban planners and policymakers accelerate the local benefits of such technology?  What can lessons from the past tell us about the need for consumer education, public policy, and a human centric design philosophy?
