Hosted by the MIT Energy Initiative | Featuring Daniel Sperling, Professor, University of California, Davis | Tuesday, February 6, 2018 | 12:00pm – 1:00pm | Building E51, Room 315 (70 Memorial Drive, Cambridge)
Daniel Sperling’s research examines the potential benefits, impacts, and synergies of the three transportation “revolutions:” electrification, automation, and pooling. In this seminar, Sperling will describe what needs to happen for this new transportation paradigm to truly benefit the public interest. Sperling will provide insight into the forces—from effective government policies to partnerships between transit operators, mobility service companies, automakers, and others—that will be instrumental in enhancing social equity, environmental sustainability, and urban livability.
These ideas are discussed in depth in the book Three Revolutions: Steering Automated, Shared, and Electric Vehicles to a Better Future, co-authored by Sperling along with other leaders in the field. The first fifty pre-registered individuals to arrive at this seminar will receive free copies of the book.
