“Is Transportation Technology the New Pavement?”

January 24, 2018

This year, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting (TRB) took place at the same time, and both conferences addressed transportation. The smart city-oriented futurists, technologists, and automotive manufacturers at CES 2018 emphasized the latest autonomous vehicle advancements and whether or not "technology is the new pavement" for the transportation industry.

In contrast, TRB attendees were focused on the day-to-day work of planning, modeling, and engineering. While the ways new technology will change that daily work were addressed, greater emphasis was placed on long-standing transportation issues - think data collection challenges, operations and maintenance, and accessibility.

As transportation technology continues to advance, how will the relationship between these two communities evolve? What are their roles as we build our transportation future? Watch this video to hear Catherine Manzo and Laura Schewel of StreetLight Data address this question and more as they compare and contrast their experiences at the two conferences.
