Austin Forum: How Technology Will Transform Transportation & Mobility

Transportation is crucial to virtually every aspect of society as well as our individual lives, and helps define our communities. However, while technology has brought extreme advances in areas ranging from computers and smartphones to scanners and sequencers, mobility options have remained essentially unchanged for decades - until now. Smartphone-enabled ridesharing is in everyday usage, electric vehicles are now mass production, and we are witnessing the dawn of autonomous vehicles that will soon becoming commonplace. Other mobility services - from on-demand bicycles and scooters to "ride-pooling" and WiFi-outfitted mass transit - are also providing better options for people, and cities, and leading companies are exploring hyperloops, flying taxis and more. Which technologies will become commonplace, how much impact will they have on our lives, and what else is on the horizon to address transportation needs and mobility options? How will these changes transform work, communities, and society? We have a panel of Austin transportation experts ready to explain all this and more, and to answer your questions. This Austin Forum event is sponsored by the Austin Technology Incubator.
