Energy Efficient Future Mobility Systems with Connected & Automated Vehicles Webinar

 
Join the Palmetto Clean Fuels coalition and the Clemson Center for Connected Multimodal Mobility (C2M2) for an engaging discussion about energy efficiency mobility systems (EEMS) and automated vehicles. US Department of Energy-funded research has shown that the introduction of connectivity and automation to the transportation sector could result in a significant decrease in energy consumption and emissions. This potential will be explored in this webinar. 
 
This event will bring together members of industry, academic and government researchers, as well as policy makers to discuss the future of connected and automated mobility systems within South Carolina.
