This session will cover how emerging technologies like drones and preliminary design/visualization applications have changed how we approach outreach on projects. Allowing us to present our designs in context improves stakeholder understanding. Utilizing the drones to capture current conditions and bring those conditions into our design applications helps clarify design intent.



Connected and autonomous vehicle technology is advancing quickly and is already being utilized in cars and trucks traveling on highways today. This new technology promises to improve safety significantly and increase mobility. Like any technology, connected and self-driving vehicles also pose other opportunities and perhaps some unintended consequences. This session will provide some basic information on connected and autonomous vehicles, and describe the opportunities and impacts to the transportation system, land use and our communities under different scenarios.
