The theme of this event is ACES and how shared, electric connected vehicles can radically alter our cities, make our cities healthier and improve the lives of millions of people.

Autonomy: We will be learning from some of the leading companies in the autonomous vehicle space, hearing about the latest innovation from companies who are on the cutting edge of machine learning, computer vision and artificial intelligence in transportation.

Connected: Vehicle to Vehicle and Vehicle to Cloud communications will become increasingly important in the coming years, as cars transform from independent entities to a mesh network of interconnected vehicles, all communicating with each other. We will learn from some of the most advanced V2X companies who are leading the way in this new communication field.

Electric: As battery technology continues to advance and costs continue to decline, more and more manufacturers will turn to electrification to power their vehicles. We will be learning about new charging systems, platforms and how startups and large companies are using electricity to power transport in the future.

Shared: Car sharing is becoming more and more common in large cities around the world. Consumers and manufacturers are learning how to adapt to the changing marketplace and demands it puts on local infrastructure. We’ll hear from policy experts, leading car sharing companies and innovators in the car sharing industry.
