Autonomy and the Urban Mobility Summit are  providing a new direction and laying the foundation for streets that are smarter and safer than ever before.

Janette Sadik-Khan

Principal, Bloomberg Associates

I very much enjoyed the variety of themes and speakers, and the opportunity to learn more about emerging innovations in urban mobility and start-ups’ initiatives. It was also an excellent opportunity for networking and meeting with practitioners and developers who are not my typical audience of public authorities. I established new contacts and potentially new opportunities for future partnerships.

The Autonomy attendees at my workshop were curious and knowledgeable about urban mobility trends on both side of the Atlantic.  Our conversation was lively, and several leaders I met  will soon become part of the German Marshall Fund’s programming.

Autonomy brought the important thinkers, innovators, designers, implementers, government officials, stakeholders and user groups together in a dynamic environment of sharing and planning. I trust there will be many positive results as a result of the discussions and presentations.

Autonomy 2017 was a great platform for the future of mobility to take shape not just in presentations, but also in an actual test track. I’m excited for what is to come for 2018.
