San Francisco, CA – Consultants from WSP USA, an engineering and professional services consultancy and leader in the field of connected and automated vehicles, will deliver presentations that will impact the future of transportation at the Automated Vehicle Symposium in San Francisco July 9-12. WSP is a benefactor of the event and the exclusive sponsor of the mobile app for the symposium, which can be downloaded here.
“Connected and automated vehicles (C/AV) have the potential to change all aspects of mobility – from the way we commute, to how we plan and develop infrastructure for future cities and towns. Federal, state and local agencies are increasingly asking whether there are actions that can be taken from a regulatory, legislative or policy viewpoint that would support and/or impact the evolution of C/AV,” says Steve Kuciemba, national intelligent transportation systems practice leader at WSP USA. Mr. Kuciemba will take part in a breakout session on Dedicated Lanes, Work Zones and Shared Data, Wednesday, July 11, 1:30 – 5:00 p.m.
Other WSP C/AV experts presenting at the conference include:
July 10, 1:30 – 5:30 p.m.
• A Call to Action: It’s Time for a Transit Renaissance! Linking Automation, Sharing and Public Transportation to Advance the Public Good
Rachel Zack, Innovative Mobility Lead
July 11, 1:30 – 3:30 p.m.
• Accelerating CAV Market Penetration by Leveraging Infrastructure
Scott Shogan, C/AV Market Leader
