How Technology is Helping Protect Vulnerable Road Users
Transforming Transportation through Technology – Blueprint Webinar Series
December 1, 2021 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm ET

Over the past two years, pedestrian fatalities have dramatically increased with speeding and other distracted and dangerous driving. Yet sensor technologies and vehicle communications can help keep people safe as they walk, bike, and roll to school, work, healthcare and community centers. 2020 the largest ever annual increase in the U.S. pedestrian fatalities, and we have a need to understand how technology investments can help improve public health for all vulnerable road users, especially those in low-income communities.

The goal of this webinar will be to understand what vulnerable road users and the active transportation community need to keep them safe, showcase innovative technology and how some early deployers are testing out these ideas. We'll hear from private sector V2X and sensor innovators, city and state officials, and representatives from active transportation to understand how we can collaborate to promote sustainable safety solutions that focus on user needs.
