The title of our upcoming conference:
“Tomorrow Has Arrived: Cities and Autonomous Vehicles”
Automated vehicle technology has arrived and it will only be a few years before we experience the impacts of driverless cars and trucks. We have an exciting program being developed to consider what these impacts may be in a range of areas. Parking, transit, goods movement, traffic, active transport and urban form are of interest along with the need for updated policies and enabling regulations. These themes will be explored in the forthcoming Pragma background paper, available in advance of the May 4th event.
We’re very pleased to be hosting this Pragma event at the University of Waterloo’s beautiful Stratford Campus building. Stratford has positioned itself as a Smart Cities leader and already been host to Autonomous Vehicle (AV) testing. It’s a unique opportunity for Pragma and it promises to be another memorable event.
