Cocktails & The Future of Urban Mobility

We invite you to join Mobileye + Smart Cities NYC for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres at the Brooklyn Grange, an elegant rooftop garden offering some of the city’s best waterfront views.

Mobileye is a global leader in the technology that enables automated accident avoidance systems and, in coming years, the technology that will enable fully autonomous driving.

This exclusive event hosted by Mobileye, in conjunction with the first international Smart Cities NYC conference (http://smartcitiesnyc.com) being held at Brooklyn Navy Yard May 3 to 6, will feature complimentary drinks and appetizers, as well as short presentations and a Q & A on the following topics:

· What’s available today to make urban areas safer? Uri Tamir, Director, Strategic Initiatives at Mobileye, will give a rundown on Mobileye’s state-of-the-art collision-avoidance technology for public transit and other urban vehicles.
· What is the time-line for autonomous vehicles? What is happening now, and what will we see on urban roads over the next decade? Mobileye Chief Communications Officer Dan Galves will provide an update on the progress of fully-autonomous vehicle programs in the United States and globally with partners Audi, BMW, Delphi, Nissan and others.
· How will the rise of vehicle automation affect cities? A special guest will provide thoughts on the wide-ranging potential impacts.

You will be brought to the event in a transit bus that has been outfitted with Mobileye’s Shield+™, the most advanced collision-avoidance system available on the market for trucks, buses and commercials vehicles. You will experience first-hand the collision-avoidance technology that is already making cities around the world safer.

Visitors will be treated to an overview of one of the NYPD’s command centers, demonstration of the data visualization tools used for COMPSTAT and TRAFFIC STAT, discussion of how this data is shared to officers in the field and with other NYC agencies, and conclude with a review of how this same data is now accessible by the public at large.
