Future of Transportation and Mobility Series: Self Driving Cars & Increased Safety
March 28, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
This year’s event will highlight the human safety and mobility impact of Autonomous Vehicle throughout our communities.
Network with industry, entrepreneurs, government and academia, and hear from speakers who will focus on the safety and mobility freedom that can be realized with the integration of AV.
This event will be held inside the ACE Wind Tunnel at the Automotive Centre of Excellence, University of Ontario Institute of Technology North Campus. The tunnel can reach wind speeds of 300 kilometres per hour with temperatures that range from -40 to +60°C. Its solar arrays and storm generators can create any weather conditions imaginable, from sweltering jungle downpours to the paralyzing cold of an arctic storm.
This event is co-hosted by the Centre for Integrated Transportation and Mobility (CITM), a division of Innovation Factory in Hamilton, UOIT and the Spark Centre in Durham.
The event is supported by Ontario’s Autonomous Vehicle Innovation Network (AVIN). AVIN brings together industry, academia, and governments to capitalize on the economic opportunities of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (C/AV) while supporting the province’s transportation systems and infrastructure in adapting to these emerging technologies.
