self uberSTAMFORD: The BOMA Southern Connecticut chapter will be hosting “Autonomous Vehicles and the Future of Transportation” on November 7 at the Crowne Plaza from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

According to the group’s announcement, “over the next decade, accelerating autonomous driving technology, including advances in artificial intelligence, sensors, cameras, radar and data analytics, are set to transform not only how we drive (or, indeed, are driven), but the notion of car ownership itself.”

Stephen Zoepf, executive director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford will address the group. Zoepf has fifteen years of experience in the automotive field, including eight years in engineering and product management roles at BMW and Ford. He recently served as a Post-Doctoral research at MIT and on the technical staff of the U.S. Department of Transportation.

Zoepf will discuss the economics, the environmental, the social and the land-use aspects of sustainable transportation: driverless cars, Uber, Lyft, as well as the regulatory impact this will have. Register at www.soctboma.org.
