Autonomous Vehicle Expert to Speak on Transformative Transportation
Automated and connected vehicle technologies continue to evolve and innovate the transportation industry. As these technologies begin to transform people's lives, a complete overhaul of what mobility enables will take place. Jerry Quandt, executive director of the Illinois Autonomous Vehicle Association, will present a talk on Illinois Tech's Mies Campus on this transportation revolution on Wednesday, October 30 from 3:30–4:30 p.m. in the Crawford Auditorium (Room 104) of the John T. Rettaliata Engineering Center.
A global marketing and business transformation leader, Quandt has also worked within the political arenas of Illinois, Washington, D.C., and Ireland. The focus of the privately funded, nonprofit IAVA is to establish Illinois as the leader in the development, design, and application of the system-of-systems that will transform mobility as we know it.
Quandt's talk is part of Illinois Tech's Urban Future Initiative project. It is free of charge and open to the public.
