There are four powerful trends coming together to transform transportation and vehicles: Autonomous, Connected, Electric and Shared – ACES. An ACES world promises to catalyze a new transportation future that reduces congestion, limits traffic accidents, cleans up our air and water, and enhances social equity by reducing the costs of personal mobility. ACES will also revolutionize the supply chain logistics world of marine, surface and air transportation while electrification offers new business opportunities for our bi-national region’s utilities. This session follows from our first ACES briefing on electrification and US Canada border technology enhancements at the Leadership Conference in Victoria, BC.

Is the public ready for an ACES world?
