At the end of April, Treeline hosted its first AtStartupSpeed Event. The event was centered on new emerging transportation technologies.
We had a fantastic opportunity to hear directly from powerful guest-speakers such as CUBIC, Current by GE, TuSimple, Platform Science, LYTX and PromoDrone.
This afternoon brought all of the right players and minds in the same room to discuss the future of mobility, and our transportation systems. Touching on multimodal interaction, our speakers discussion topics ranged from platform development and intelligent fleet management strategy, to the evolving capabilities of drone technologies.
Vivian Sun from TuSimple introduced us to the autonomous truck and its market impact. By bringing the first self-driving truck to market TuSimple is making way for safer roads and efficiently decreasing transportation costs, and reducing carbon emissions.
Current Powered by GE has repurposed San Diego’s traffic lights into a digital sensor device that can collect all the data in the city and create solutions with this data. Austin Ashe discussed this Traffic Light Program that the City of San Diego has adopted. This program is still in the infancy stages but is taking off introducing new technology and an overall new platform.
