Event description

Description

Designing for the future of automated mobility has become a common and necessary practice, but what about the necessary planning to prepare our governments and our citizens for the four revolutions? Join this exciting interactive workshop as Chicago becomes a laboratory for testing new planning paradigms. Rather than starting by focusing on the supply of new technologies our cities will need, we will work through several live scenarios on Chicago’s streets to understand the demand for automated travel relative to the full spectrum of mobility choices, street life, and land-use activities that our neighbors and constituents will need, seek, or demand in the near future. The workshop is intended to leave participants with arguments to motivate urgently-needed autonomy preparations in their communities along with tools to prepare policy-makers and begin community conversations.

Workshop Facilitators include:

  • Vincent Valdes, Associate Administrator for Research, Demonstration and Innovation, Federal Transit Administration

  • Jason Schrieber, Senior Principal, Stantec Urban Places

  • Annie Chang, Project Manager, Technical Programs, Global Ground Vehicle Standards, SAE International

  • Ryan Martinson, M.E., P.E., Associate, Sustainable Transportation Specialist, Stantec

  • Victoria Fast, Assistant Professor, Department of Geography, University of Calgary

Registration for this event is limited to 60 participants, and this workshop is only open to attendees of the 2018 National Shared Mobility Summit. If you have any questions, please email summit2018@sharedusemobilitycenter.org

This workshop is co-sponsored by Stantec. Special thanks to the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning for generously providing materials.
