Even as companies compete to introduce new and more efficient fuel technologies, increasing consumer demand for connectivity is turning the vehicle into the next mobile platform. Changing demographics and consumer behavior have inspired new mobility models, such as car-sharing and ride-sharing. Cities are also becoming innovative, with smart parking and other intelligent transportation systems. In addition, groundbreaking active safety technologies are paving the way today for the automated vehicles of tomorrow. And, in the near future, cars will be communicating with each other and the infrastructure around them.&nbsp;</p> <p>Please join ITIF for an expert panel discussion about the future of mobility, the new technologies and business models that are likely to emerge, and the policies that can help spur even greater innovation. The event will also include a demonstration of Toyota’s new front-drive, zero emission, concept vehicle: the <a href="http://www.toyota-global.com/showroom/toyota_design/concept_cars/gallery_i-road.html">i-Road</a>. A raffle will be held at the close of the panel giving one lucky attendee a chance to drive the car.</p><div class="field field-type-computed field-field-rel-ids-issues"> <div class="field-label">Rel IDs for issues:</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 5470,5522 </div> </div> </div> Transportation Wed, 09 Apr 2014 18:00:00 +0000 akey 5470 at http://www.itif.org The Economic Impact of Open Data http://www.itif.org/events/economic-impact-open-data <div class="field field-type-text field-field-enablereg"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> off </div> </div> </div> <p>Government agencies collect a vast amount of data that is valuable not only to the agency that collected it, but also to many other stakeholders in the public and private sector. By making their data freely available without restrictions, government agencies can enable the private sector to leverage public data—including weather information, maps, legal filings, financial statements, health indicators, and education metrics—to develop new products and services and create new economic value. Already, a wide variety of companies have created innovations that were born from government data that has been made available for reuse.</p><p>Join the <a href="http://www.datainnovation.org/" target="_blank">Center for Data Innovation</a> for a panel discussion highlighting new findings about where demand for open data is strongest and how government agencies can help promote continued data-driven growth in these sectors.
