Polis Secretary General talks 'Automation' beyond cars at CoMotion LA

Autonomy isn’t just for cars. What are the advantages and opportunities for autonomous buses and other new forms of transit — speed, efficiency, safety? How can cities harness this technology for their own ends? What infrastructure is necessary to maximize their investment? And how can they leverage their unique position as regulators and help design the urban transportation systems of the future?

These questions will find answers on Friday, November 15, 2019, during the panel "The Age of Automation" at the third global conference CoMotion LA.

The panel will be moderated by Russ Mitchell, Automobiles Reporting and Analysis, Los Angeles Times.
