SamTrans and San Mateo County Transportation Authority Host Autonomous Vehicle Workshop

SamTrans and San Mateo County Transportation Authority Host Autonomous Vehicle Workshop

 

SamTrans and the San Mateo County Transportation Authority (TA) will host a workshop on the future of autonomous vehicles in San Mateo County on Wednesday, November 17. The webinar will provide an overview of current autonomous policy framework, and an opportunity to learn about available technologies and potential policies. 

With autonomous vehicle technology advancing, there are a great number of policies that will need to be implemented for these vehicles to become street-legal. Collaboration is necessary for the companies that build the vehicles, the public agencies that manage the roads, and the transit agencies that operate in the same space to ensure these vehicles can operate safely and effectively as they become available.

Speakers at the event include University of San Francisco Professor William Riggs, Zoox Chief Safety Innovation Officer Mark Rosekind, M. Imran Ali of Via Transportation, Jose Alvarado of Cruise, and representatives from public agencies including VTA, the Contra Costa Transportation Authority, the Utah Transit Authority, and the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
