War Games Come to TRB: May the Best Plan for Connecting Technology and Policy Win

Sunday, January 07, 2018, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM, Convention Center
Julie Lorenz, Burns and McDonnell Engineering Company; Andrea d'Amato, Massachusetts Department of Transportation, presiding
Sponsored by Standing Committee on Strategic Management; Standing Committee on Management and Productivity; Standing Committee on Transportation Issues in Major Cities; Standing Committee on Statewide Multimodal Transportation Planning; and Standing Committee on Transportation and Economic Development

New technologies likely will create winners, losers, and unanticipated ripple effects. How can technology, public policy, and market forces align to achieve the greatest societal benefits? Building on the National Cooperative Highway Research Program's Foresight 750 series, this workshop offers the chance to participate in an open-ended competition to develop a transformational solution to the challenge of integrating policy and technology. Preassigned teams may work on solutions before the TRB Annual Meeting or may choose to observe TRB’s first-ever war game. The War Game is also being supported by the new National Academies of Science and TRB Forum on Preparing for Automated Vehicles and Shared Mobility.
