Event Details

Nov. 9 2017, 9am
Washington DC

General Services Administration Headquarters at 1800 F Street NW | Area 4250 (Presidential Innovation Fellows space)

The summit will highlight innovations and public-private partnerships that are currently leveraging or could benefit from leveraging transportation safety data.  

Join us to hear exciting updates from industry, academia, nonprofits and government stakeholders, meet thought leaders and practicioners, and recognize the Challenge teams across the country who have been working on projects since the May 2017 initiative launch. 
The National Transportation Data Challenge is a series of community problem-solving events, roundtables, hackathons, demonstrations, and tutorials/trainings to build and strengthen collaborative projects that advance transportation safety by using existing or emerging data. The Challenge links efforts and encourages contributions across six categories:

  • BIKE / PEDESTRIAN SAFETY: How might we improve bike/pedestrian safety in our communities?
  • DISTRACTED DRIVING:How might we determine if there is a distracted driving problem? How might we mitigate the issue?
  • WEATHER / EMERGENCY RESPONSE: How might we improve transportation safety in extreme weather? In cases of crises? 
  • AUTONOMOUS OR CONNECTED VEHICLES: How might we leverage autonomous or enhanced vehicles to improve our constituents’ safety? How might we navigate technological, policy, and social considerations involved?
  • MULTIPLE DATA STREAMS:How might we utilize multiple data streams(particularly from different sectors, sources) to capture actionable insights to make a local transportation corridor more safe? Are there lessons and best practices that can be shared more broadly? 
  • CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT: How might we develop a ready-to-go high school or undergraduate curriculum introducing transportation safety data to build awareness and spark new contributions/solutions?

How to participate:

STEP 1: Register to attend the Challenge Summit here on Eventbrite. The Summit will feature teams and projects from across the country who will be eligible for prizes and awards. 

STEP 2: Participants should also register their team to access resources, share their demo, analysis and/or expertise at an upcoming event(in person or online), and compete at the Summit in Washington D.C. on November 9th.

Venue information and other details will be added in the near future. We hope to see you there!
