2017 Event

Building on the success of the 2016 conference, which laid the foundation for key issues, opportunities, and challenges, the 2017 Automated Vehicles event took the conversation to the next level; beyond fundamentals and scenarios to strategies for achieving desired outcomes.

This conference addressed some of the most pressing issues around AVs, including:

  • What is the role of AVs in creating sustainable and complete communities?
  • What policy actions are needed at all levels of government?
  • How will this technology affect Canadians’ lifestyles and mobility choices?
  • What is the future of mass public transit?
