Webinar: Assess the Impact of Mandate-Driven Auto Safety in the United States
A positive decision from the Department of Transportations’ NHTSA agency this August will create a surge of interest and demand for DSRC tech in the V2V & V2I space. It’s thus clear that all companies in this value chain must be ready for the ramifications and rewards of this government legislation.
We got together Toyota, Cisco and Michigan Department of Transportation on an exclusive live webinar to reveal how they are pre-empting this key mandate decision and how they plan to take advantage of new growth opportunities in this space.
