The MEDC auto team in partnership with ITS America convened a global symposium to discuss proactive policy, regulations and standards surrounding the testing and validation of new intelligent vehicle technologies during the ITS World Congress in Montreal.
The all-day, invitation-only symposium took place on November 1st and featured presentations and discussions by key leaders of testing initiatives and facilities from 10 countries. To view the full symposium agenda, click here.
The main goal of the event was to initiate an actionable and sustainable conversation on harmonizing global policy, regulations and standards to help accelerate the worldwide implementation of connected and automated vehicle technologies. Based on the positive response we have received from participants, the MEDC Automotive office will convene follow-up conversation during ITS America in Detroit in June and The 2018 World Congress to be held September 17-21 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Presentations and a video of the November 1, 2017 proceedings are posted below. If you are a leader of a CAV testing initiative or facility and want to be a part of future events, please contact Susan Proctor, Strategic Initiatives Director, Automotive Office, Michigan Economic Development Corporation.
