Cars, Streets and Policy in 2035 (CM | 1.5)
September 7, 2012 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
The Car Future Group will conduct an interactive session about how trends in vehicle design and technology will play out on the roadways and policy context of the future. We will present important information about the future of cars design: Shape, weight, size, fuel types and degrees of automation. We will then discuss the future of our infrastructure and how the new vehicles will be used, exploring issues such as roadway and lane design, pricing, insurance and public policy. The audience will see that we are facing a future characterized by opposing trends, and not monolithic solutions. The next part of our presentation will be a discussion where participants will be asked to discuss their own examples and case-studies. We will allow time for discussion and conversation about the design-logic of the car industry and other aspects of our research.
