for the November 12 meeting.

Join us as ITKAN closes out the year by looking to the future with an exploration of the promise of Autonomous Vehicles! We’ve got two great speakers for the evening. 

Sheryl Gross-Glaser was the founding director of the National Center for Applied Transit Technology (N-CATT) and has expertise in the development of AV and its application to urban environments and public transit systems. Carol Tyson is the Government Affairs Liaison for the Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund (DREDF) and former Director for Disability Policy with United Spinal Association. She is a respected voice nationally for equity and accessibility across all modes of developing transportation including AV. 

We’ll explore the following lanes in AV development, accessibility, and application…

  • Where we are with AVs with legislation, pilots, and operations.
  • What do we mean by accessibility for AVs? Differentiating the possible – but unlikely – from the impossible.
  • The work within the disability community and with OEMs, tech companies, government agencies and others to advocate for accessible AVs. 

Join us for this stimulating conversation on the future of transportation!
