Florida Automated Vehicles Summit Debuts Virtual Event Series
The FAV Speaker Series Features Industry Leaders and Robust Discussions on Cutting-Edge Transportation Technology in ACES (Automated, Connected, Electric, Shared)
November 17, 2020 (Virtual Event) – Beginning in 2013, the FAV Summit has attracted a global audience interested in Florida’s technology-friendly policies and discussions on ACES mobility (ACES is an acronym for the four rising stars of mobility – Automated, Connected, Electric, and Shared). Since the in-person event is not possible this year, the Summit has pivoted to an online format with the FAV Speaker Series, a free 5-part series that will take place between December 2020 and April 2021.
The series kicks off on December 3rd at 11 am EST with Adam Jonas. Jonas, the Managing Director of Research at Morgan Stanley, will lead the dynamic discussion “Cars & Climate: How Big Tech, Fleets, and Cities Drive the EV Revolution.” As technology continues to evolve, everything from road repairs and repaving to lane restructuring and transit projects will be affected by a city’s plan to incorporate ACES into their network of transportation options and will create investment opportunities for deployment.

“Innovation is not waiting. There is a global need to use technology and innovation to solve mobility problems and the FAV Speaker Series continues to reach high-tech companies, finance experts, and land-use planners to discuss what is happening now that will impact the future of driving,” says Joe Waggoner, CEO Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority (THEA).
THEA, TEAMFL, the Central Florida Expressway Authority (CFX), the Jacksonville Transportation Authority, and Miami Dade Expressway (MDX) have worked to offer a safe format to share information on ACES that will affect city governments and county metropolitan planning organizations as they set local transportation policy in the near future. The FAV Summit and the FAV Speaker Series showcases Florida’s commitment to lead the country and bring technology to the forefront.
“The evolution of transportation over the next decade will be unlike anything we have seen in our lifetime,” says State Senator Jeff Brandes (R-St. Petersburg), a leader in automated vehicle policy solutions. “Leaders in both government and industry need access to the best ideas from those at the forefront of this transition. The FAV Speaker Series provides a unique forum to open the aperture on the future by providing an insider’s perspective to policymakers and firms, alike, to plan for the road ahead.”
The 5-Part Speaker Series will run from December 2020 – April 2021 with the 2021 FAV Summit planned for next November in-person in Orlando, FL.
