One of the hottest topics in transportation is the impact that automated and connected vehicles will have on the nation’s surface transportation system. 

What does the future hold for these advancing technologies and the impact they will have on highway and transit networks? What do A/E firms need to know to effectively assist their clients in preparing for and taking full advantage of these disruptive forces?

Join our panel of expert transportation technology practitioners to examine the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s position on CAVs with an overview of the newly released, Preparing for the Future of Transportation: Automated Vehicles 3.0 guidelines, and a deeper discussion beyond the guidelines into the many issues facing state and local governments.

You'll also explore future-proofing roadway infrastructure and other concepts on how agencies and firms can prepare to incorporate and accommodate rapidly changing technologies such as CAVs.


  • Examine the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s position on CAVs as described in the Preparing for the Future of Transportation: AV 3.0
  • Identify key initiatives and concepts of future-proofing for technology that state and local transportation agencies could be implemented now that would help them prepare for CAVs
  • Review anticipated technology trends as they are expected to impact traditional ITS infrastructure deployments within the context of CAVs
  • Identify the type of infrastructure and traffic operation modifications that will be needed to accommodate a mixed vehicle fleet in the interim and an eventual fully CAV fleet
  • Explore the challenges of adequate digital infrastructure, data transmission, and data management for effective CAV integration
