Driving the Future: Developing Next Generation Automotive Innovation in America
As the Fourth Industrial Revolution takes off, new advanced technologies will transform our daily lives - from the way we work, to the way we share information and experiences, to the way we travel across the globe. One technology that has received particular attention in recent years is autonomous vehicles, or self-driving cars. In research facilities across the country, businesses from around the globe are innovating to make the dream of self-driving cars a reality. The U.S. remains a premier market for investment in research and development for next-generation auto technologies and autonomous vehicles. Join the CSIS Scholl Chair for a conversation with experts and companies to discuss the unique business environment and factors that make the U.S. a world leader in this field, the exciting possibilities that autonomous vehicles present, and how current trade tensions are impacting the mobility revolution.
The event will open with remarks by Sujeesh Kurup, Policy Analyst with the Office of Science and Technology Policy in the Executive Office of the President and follow with a panel discussion moderated by Gabrielle Coppola, Reporter with Bloomberg News.
This event is made possible through the generous support of Toyota Motor North America and Volkswagen Group of America.
