Dear AV & Smart Mobility Stakeholders,
METRO and the Texas Innovation Alliance invite you to the AV & Smart Mobility Conference on September 8-9, 2019, in Houston, Texas. Hosting at Texas Southern Library Learning Center on the first day, and The Ensemble Theatre on the second day of the conference. Due to generous partners and sponsors, we are pleased to announce that the conference is complimentary to invited Texas Innovation Alliance Members and its stakeholders!
The AV & Smart Mobility Conference is being planned for our stakeholders to take a holistic, integrated approach to understanding autonomous driving technology, software and the potential for autonomous vehicle mass transit, as we look into the future of transit and other life-changing autonomous vehicle possibilities. Technological advances are poised to change transportation. The aim is to bridge the gap between the autonomous vehicle technology innovation and the public at large to create a safe, dependable, efficient mode of transportation. Your participation in this discussion will make for a valuable contribution to the autonomous vehicle landscape moving forward in the 21st Century.
The conference will give all participants the opportunity to visit the home of Houston’s first autonomous shuttle program on the Texas Southern University campus. The shuttle is part of a pilot program operated by METRO, to help understand how autonomous vehicles could be used. We are excited to have several other AV and Smart Mobility demonstrations and exhibits during the demo day.
