Is your community or organization ready for the next wave of vehicle technologies – Autonomous and Connected Vehicles- to hit the road? Do you want to learn more about autonomous and connected vehicles and how to begin preparing for them? If so, great!
Centralina Council of Governments and the Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition are hosting a series of three workshops in the fall on autonomous and connected vehicles (ACV) and how MPOs, local governments, and other stakeholders can prepare for these new technologies. These workshops will be a combination of learning and cross-sector discussion that will culminate in next best steps for your community, organization and the Charlotte region.
