Description

Please join us for the inaugural Future of Transportation and Mobility Series: Self Driving Cars & Increased Safety


This year's event will highlight the human safety and mobility impact of Autonomous Vehicle throughout our communities.

Network with industry, entrepreneurs, government and academia, and hear from speakers who will focus on the safety and mobility freedom that can be realized with the integration of AV.

This event will be held inside the ACE Wind Tunnel at the Automotive Centre of Excellence, University of Ontario Institute of Technology North Campus. The tunnel can reach wind speeds of 300 kilometres per hour with temperatures that range from -40 to +60°C. Its solar arrays and storm generators can create any weather conditions imaginable, from sweltering jungle downpours to the paralyzing cold of an arctic storm.
