A New Speaker Series
Automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, sensing technology, and computing will transform the future of travel and commerce. Technological advances continue to change the national and global transportation landscape at an unprecedented pace.
As the private sector drives innovation across all modes, there is potential for dramatic impacts on the safety and efficiency of the future transportation system and the composition of the nation’s transportation workforce.
The U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s upcoming speaker series—The Ongoing Transformation of the Global Transportation System—will explore challenges and opportunities affecting the advancement of transportation systems.
The series will kick off in September 2017.
The Ongoing Transformation of the Global Transportation System continues the U.S. DOT Volpe Center’s long history of convening thought leaders, decision makers, and stakeholders from across the global transportation enterprise to anticipate future transportation issues, generate fresh approaches to emerging issues, anticipate transportation trends, and inform decision making.
For over 45 years, the Volpe Center has helped U.S. DOT and the broader transportation community navigate its most challenging problems. Renowned for multidisciplinary and multimodal expertise, Volpe’s mission is to improve transportation by anticipating and addressing emerging and future issues and advancing technical, operational, and institutional innovation.
