As autonomous vehicle technology continues to advance, smart infrastructure will need to keep pace. The US must also embrace resiliency in infrastructure planning to minimize the impact of disasters, as well as challenges to innovation.
You are invited to join our featured panelists and citizens around the US as we highlight the state of our nation’s infrastructure during Infrastructure Week 2018, focused on the challenges and benefits of autonomous vehicle innovation and infrastructure resiliency through the lens of pre-disaster mitigation. Hear from:
