2015 UTRC Transportation Technology Symposium: Innovative Mobility Solutions

This unique summit galvanized leading experts, academics, practitioners, industry stakeholders and transportation advocates, to discuss the rapidly changing and expanding world of Transportation Technology and Innovative Mobility Solutions, as well as Public Policy-Making Implications. Presenters explored Cutting-Edge Intelligent Transportation Systems, Big Data Aggregation, and Innovative Transportation Technology Solutions to promote efficiency, safety, security and sustainability goals, as well as the impact on broader inter-modal and multi-modal transportation considerations.
Future and forward thinking innovative concepts are encouraged, and the pragmatic political reality of various movements (such as climate change/environmental policies and safety initiatives for reduced traffic fatalities), were analyzed to ascertain whether society is ready to keep pace with the implementation of such technology.
