Event date and time

UTRC's fifth symposium on autonomous and connected vehicles will be held in New York City (on the campus of NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn) on December 8-9, 2016.

This year's event will focus on Social, Economic, Environmental & Safety Benefits of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles. New York City's current efforts to demonstrate vehicle-to-vehicle and other communication technology as part of USDOT's Connected Vehicle Pilot Deployment Program will be highlighted at this event. We are very pleased to be able to present this exciting work along with talks on efforts at the other two USDOT deployment locations in southern Wyoming and Tampa, Florida. The symposium will have panels on Autonomous Vehicles for Smart Cities; Connected Vehicles for Transit; Safety and Long-Term Impacts of CV/AV; and CV/AV for Freight.

The event is hosted by UTRC in partnership with NYU Tandon School of Engineering; NYU Center for Urban Science and Progress; Princeton University; SUNY Polytechnic Institute; and Transportation Informatics (TRANSINFO) at the University at Buffalo, and VREF Center for Excellence for Sustainable Urban Freight Systems (CoE-SUFS).
