The Leonard Transportation Center at Cal State San Bernardino will be presenting the fourth in a series of six dialogues on topics relevant to the future of transportation in the Inland Empire.

The series is open to the public and sponsored by HNTB Corporation, an infrastructure solutions firm.

The fourth program will take place on July 31 at the Loma Linda University San Manuel Gateway College, 250 S. G St. in San Bernardino.

In this session, titled “Autonomous and Connected Vehicles -- Will They Make Things Better or Worse?” attendees will hear from noted autonomous vehicle and connected vehicle experts including:

• James Barbaresso, internationally recognized expert on automated and connected vehicles, senior vice president and national ITS practice leader with HNTB Corporation; and

• Brian Simi, chief, Office of Technology, Innovation and Deployment, Caltrans.

Following the presentations, attendees can engage in a discussion with an opportunity to share their concerns and ideas with transportation professionals, policy makers and each other. Transportation experts from HNTB will facilitate this discussion and will bring their experience in transportation technology to benefit the dialogue.

The cost for the series is $30 per session. Registration fees cover a continental breakfast, parking on campus and conference materials.

Attendance is limited to the first 50 registrants, so early registration is recommended.
