JHTC: Future of Transportation, May 14, 2019


Changes in the way people and goods are transported are happening at a rapidly growing pace, from electric and autonomous vehicles to delivery drones. We are entering a new era of transportation. California Governor Jerry Brown has set a target in the state for 5 million electric vehicles on our roadways by 2030 – that’s an almost 900% growth rate from where we are today. Furthermore, all major automakers have allocated significant funding to the development of self-driving vehicle technology and many have targets to reach some level of autonomy by the early 2020s. With significant changes in our mobility patterns and increased complexity in the technology, the transportation industry is undergoing a transformation. This session will ask their panelists: What is the future of transportation? Is it realistic? How will these new trends affect how we interact with the world around us? What are some of the advantages and perhaps, challenges to these changing trends?
