Grayson Brulte is the Co-Chair of the Mayor’s Autonomous Vehicle Task Force for the City of Beverly Hills. We asked him to discuss with us the future of mobility, current challenges within the autonomous vehicles space, advancements in autonomous technology, a specific combination of technologies that will help progress autonomous driving, and what the current perspective of regulators is in this space.
Scott Kubly, Director of Seattle Department of Transportation discusses how cities prepare for autonomous vehicles, the early type of applications and deployments in cities, how cities and private sector work to develop win/wins, and the long term policy impacts of AVs on cities.
Matt Boyer the co-founder and Chief Operating Officer for Zylter, discusses how different industries will be affected by the onset of AVs, where investments are being made in regards to technology, the current market research about the future of AVs, challenges being faced by organizations looking to implement AVs, and the steps they can take to overcome them.
Kristin Kolodge, Executive Director, Driver Interaction & Human Machine Interface at J.D. Power discusses what needs to be done to help consumer acceptance, what can be done with HMI to create, build and maintain trust. As well as where the biggest surge of investment in technology will take place, and where the future of AVs will fit into cities.
Dr. Zhenchun Xia, ADAS/Autonomous Vehicle Systems Engineer at Autoliv, sits down with us to discuss How some critical controls/algorithms like computer vision, and machine learning help to solve some of the current challenges to autonomous vehicles, what’s currently being worked on or has been recently developed at Autoliv that can benefit the safety of an autonomous vehicle on the road, and the biggest surge of investment in technology for autonomous vehicles.
Dan Sturges, Director of Urban Mobility Design at Local Motors, discusses the early type of applications and deployments in cities, the long term policy impacts of autonomous vehicles on cities, some ways to develop new mobility vehicles and services by co-designing with the public, and Olli the self-driving electric vehicle at Local Motors, and how the design was created with safety in mind.
