The future is connected, autonomous, electrified, and shared. It is safer, cleaner, and greener. And it is one of unprecedented convergence and collaboration. This future is evolving now. Are you driving it?

Smart mobility innovations such as CAVs and fleets, electric vehicles, low-speed automated shuttles and drones are revolutionizing how we work, live and play.

They are combining with next-gen networks, cybersecurity, 5G, AI and machine learning, IoT, big data, and AR/VR. And they are unleashing a world of new possibilities.

This includes a world with safer roads and road users…more efficient, sustainable transportation and energy…more secure food production and public spaces…healthier communities and citizens…and a more connected, equitable and inclusive society.

Join us at CAV Canada to explore, pursue and create this future.
