He describes himself as a painter, designer, animator, filmmaker, troublemaker and thinker. His official biography says Kentley-Klay “is hard wired to pioneer creative projects that live at the vanguard of invention.” His talk is sure to spark a lively discussion.
MobilityTalks International at the Washington Auto Show is designed as a forum for governments from around the world to exchange ideas on best practices related to the emerging trends in transportation surrounding connected and autonomous vehicles. The goal is to address the challenges through partnership and collaboration.
To that end, the Washington Auto Show is bringing together mobility experts from around the world to speak at the event, Jan. 23 to 24. MobilityTalks will commence on Jan. 23 at 3 p.m., where Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI), who has a longtime interest in autonomous vehicles, will open a panel discussion in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Russell Senate Office Building.
On Jan. 24, morning speakers will include representatives from government transportation departments and universities from China, Germany, Japan, South Korea, the U.K. and the U.A.E. The afternoon will feature four breakout sessions. The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) and the Eno Center for Transportation will each present a panel discussion. Two other sessions will explore data security and the future of engine technology.
In a first for the U.S. Senate and the Washington Auto Show, the Senate Commerce Committee will hold a full field hearing at the Washington Convention Center, on Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. The hearing will take place during the MobilityTalks, but is not officially affiliated with them.
