With a focus on driverless and connected vehicles, the National Academy of Engineering held a regional meeting at Michigan Engineering in May. NAE members comprise the nation’s most influential engineers. Autonomous and connected vehicles are expected on U.S. roads within a decade, so it’s a pivotal time for the technologies. Here is Michigan Engineering’s coverage.
Social media can let researchers predict where certain accidents might happen. That’s just one example of how big data could transform transportation. The possibilities become even more robust in the context of the coming revolution in driverless and connected vehicles.
Connected vehicles are already vulnerable to cyber attacks, and with the advent of driverless cars, the stakes will only get higher.
Nearly 200 leading engineers from across the Midwest and the nation will be on the University of Michigan’s campus next week to gain insights into autonomous and connected vehicles as they chart a path toward adopting these rapidly maturing technologies.
