National Dialogue on Highway Automation

Workshop 2 – Digital Infrastructure and Data

August 1, 2018, 12:30pm PDT – August 2, 2018, 3:00pm PDT

DoubleTree Seattle Airport: 18740 International BoulevardSeattle, WA 98188

I invite you to participate in the National Dialogue on Highway Automation. This series of 5 workshops is bringing together diverse stakeholders to discuss the implications of automated vehicles for the roadway infrastructure and the many organizations that manage them.  Workshops include discussions with government and industry leaders, breakout sessions, listening sessions and opportunities to collaborate with meeting participants. Input received during the Dialogues is informing national research, policies, and programs, and supporting the development of a national transportation community around highway automation. 

The next workshop is going to be held in Seattle, WA, at the DoubleTree Hotel Seattle Airport on August 1-2, 2018.  You may book hotel rooms on your own directly through the hotel website, and there are several other hotels within walking distance.  The workshop in Seattle will engage attendees in exploring and understanding the emerging needs of digital infrastructure to accommodate automated vehicles on the roadway network.  Specific discussion topics will consider implications of sensing technologies, communications networks, analytical and decision support tools, and data management and data governance. Speakers and other workshop participants will include senior leadership from FHWA, the U.S. DOT and other national organizations.
