Students Team Up with Industry Professionals on the Adoption of Automated Vehicles
Working with transportation industry professionals, a group of secondary school students will use open data to develop creative solutions around the adoption of connected and automated vehicles.
 
The students will see demonstrations of connected and autonomous vehicles, and learn from industry professionals about the use of open data and transportation planning.
