This session will focus on three new considerations that innovation brings with it: 1) How to maintain state and local regulatory control in consideration of our diverse national transportation system while balancing the promotion of innovation; 2) Analyzing privacy law in an era where "smart" technologies are being deployed on public assets and collecting citizen data; and, 3) onsidering what outreach and education should be done to citizens around the deployment of new technologies to not only promote use and adoption, but to also ensure consumer trust with the increased collection of data through public-private partnerships.
1. Provide history of preemption, including summary of cases dealing with federal jurisdiction over safety of vehicles operating on public roads. This will be relevant in context of debate around autonomous vehicles bills in Congress.
3. Analyze the risk of increased data collection and new models for the storage of data for public-private partnerships, including what consent may or may not be needed from citizens as part of smart city projects using both public infrastructure and citizen data.
