Explore the action and insights from ATSSA’s Midyear Meeting

Check out photos plus video highlights of general session

ATSSA’s Midyear Meeting provided bountiful opportunities to reconnect, explore solutions to roadway safety infrastructure challenges, socialize over pickleball and hear from automotive industry experts.

If you missed it or want to revisit the experience, we’ve posted dozens of photos and you can watch highlights of the general session featuring Tony Reinhart, Ford Motor Company’s director of Government Relations, and Brad Stertz, director of Audi Government Affairs and co-founder and chairman of Partners for Automated Vehicle Education (PAVE).

Reinhart, pictured above, shared that Ford is testing autonomous vehicles in Michigan, California, Texas, Florida and Washington, D.C. He said the company is currently mapping communities with computers that he said “learn” to recognize changing dynamics in pavement markings, signs and other variables.

Stertz shared that Audi has been working with the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) on technology projects to make active work zones safer and is also now working with officials in Alpharetta, Ga., and the Fulton County schools to use CV2X technology with school buses and to create school zone alerts.

Both men said the success of the connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) field will depend on stakeholders working together.

The Midyear Meeting was held in Kansas City, Mo., from Aug. 17-20 and broke attendance records with 381 registered. It also had the largest turnout for an ATSS Foundation Fundraiser, pictured above. The fundraiser was hosted by the Heart of America ATSSA Chapter and held at Chicken N Pickle, where members took part in pickleball and other outdoor games.

ATSSA’s next big event is the 52nd Annual Convention & Traffic Expo in Tampa, Fla., Feb. 11-15. Registration is now open and a limited number of booth spaces are still available. For full details, Expo.ATSSA.com.
