Welcome to the Phoenix Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society

The Autonomous Revolution of Vehicles & Transportation

Mark Goldstein, President of International Research Center will deliver an updated and expanded version of "The Autonomous Revolution of Vehicles & Transportation" to the IEEE Computer Society Phoenix Chapter on June 12, 2019 at DeVry University’s Phoenix Campus. Mark will provide a detailed overview of the transformation of transportation through autonomous vehicles and the advent of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) on the ground and in the air including why Arizona is a hot bed for development and deployment, enabling sensor and communication technologies, and a forward-looking view of societal impact, markets, and opportunities. Waves of change will roll through the transportation industry and practices as autonomy ramps up in personal and mass transportation, as well as in logistics/delivery segments. Join us as we examine how autonomous vehicles will be developed, deployed, and monetized creating new business models across the transportation sector. Explore autonomous vehicles roadblocks and operational challenges, emerging standards and protocols, connected services and their associated big data strategies and opportunities.
