Featured Guest

Bryan Mistele

Co-founder, President  & CEO of INRIX, a leading provider of traffic information, connected car services and transportation.

The Future of Transportation: The Impact the ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric & Shared) Vehicles Will Have on Society.

For 100 years, the automobile didn’t change much, but now technology is reinventing transportation.  

ACES is devoted to accelerating the widespread adoption of autonomous, connected, electric, and shared vehicles. ACES vehicles will improve the lives of all our residents by reducing congestion, reducing traffic accidents and deaths, improving our environment and improving social equity by increasing transportation availability and reducing costs. 

In this talk, Bryan will show how technology is already impacting how we think of transportation, and what it will mean for the future.  Bryan will discuss how computing technology, connected vehicles and big data is enabling new solutions to some of society’s biggest problems.

Considered to be one of the nation's leading experts on the future of automotive transportation, Bryan has served as a member of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s National Transportation Policy Project, as a member of the United States Department of Transportation’s ITS Advisory Committee, and as a board member of the Intelligent Transportation Society of America.  Bryan currently serves on the board of the Discovery Institute, a leading think-tank in the Pacific Northwest.  He's passionate about boating, politics and Christianity.

You won't want to miss this illuminating discussion about how we can usher in a new era of transportation.
