Time: 9:00am - 10:30am

Place: ODOT Region 2 Building X Conference Room, 855 Airport Rd SE, Salem 

Course Name: Automated Vehicles in Oregon

The Oregon Department of Transportation is the lead agency for automated vehicle policy in the state, and is working on a range of efforts to prepare for this new technology. This presentation will cover the different types of automated vehicles, from driver assistance systems to driverless vehicles, and from driverless taxis to driverless semis. The session will look into some of the potential effects this new technology could have on the transportation system, and the work of the AV Task Force to begin to devise a regulatory framework in areas like licensing, insurance and liability, and law enforcement. 
Speaker: Andrew Dick, Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT). Andrew works for ODOT as the Connected, Automated and Electric Vehicle Advisor. In this role, he helps the agency prepare for the new vehicle technologies that will transform the transportation system, and identify how new policy can help to accommodate them. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Political Economy from Colorado College.
