Transportation is undergoing a technological transformation. 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. 

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 i-Road. A raffle will be held at the close of the panel giving one lucky attendee a chance to drive the car.
