To meet the needs of the 21st Century a bipartisan Congress passed the Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act (LCSA) in 2016 to update the regulation of chemicals, modernizing the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). This session will reveal the recently finalized framework for implementing this new chemical legislation. This session will also cover interpretations of new chemicals that affect the automotive industry.

Event
The session will discuss the current state of research and discuss the policy and how regulations may impact this growing mode of transportation. What might the future of this technology look like, what will be market/consumer acceptance, how will autonomous technology play a role, what regulatory and policy changes are needed, and lessons learned from case studies around the nation.

Two of the best reasons to buy a new vehicle today are improved safety through crash avoidance technologies and better efficiency through advanced powertrains. But are consumers onboard? With average vehicle prices at all-time highs, and gas prices remaining low, consumers may be reluctant to adopt new technologies or pay much more for them. Rising concerns about the environment and increasing traffic fatalities have led to regulations that look to expedite these technologies into the market. How do automakers, regulators and consumers come together to achieve the desired results? Our panel of experts will weigh in on these questions, including better acceptance of zero emission vehicles, the coming deployment of automated vehicles, and better adoption of today’s advanced crash avoidance systems.

Presentations will cover data collection, analysis and how to access information from NHTSA’s new motor vehicle crash data collection efforts. Presentations will include technologies NHTSA is currently utilizing to enhance our efficiencies in our investigation based data collection; the relative precision of various data sources related to the collection of crash causation data; Event Data Recorder (EDR) collection including availability, acquisition, coding and practicality for research. In addition, a presentation on what we still anticipate as the “gaps” in the future data and suggestions to how industry can assist in acquiring this valuable information.

Event
This session will cover safety principles and operational guidelines for automated vehicles that operate up through the Level 3 (“hands off” operational mode, but drivers still necessary). Topics include real-world experiences, test methods and performance metrics used to develop automated driving functions, and safety and reliability considerations, and consumer acceptance, and strategies to transition the controls from the driver to the vehicle.
2018-01-24
Event
This session will cover topics related to automated vehicles that operate on Levels 4 and 5 (fully autonomous; can perform driving tasks under same conditions that a human driver could perform them). Topics include government policies and perspectives, infrastructure and regulatory barriers to AV development, and system development and architecture to date.

The vast majority of vehicles on the road today are powered by liquid fuels, and forecasts project liquid fuel-powered internal combustion engines will continue to be in the market for the next several decades. This session will explore the roles of liquid fuels for Light-Duty and Heavy-Duty vehicles in the coming years, (e.g. 100% renewables, biofuels, octane enhancers, advanced renewable components and discussion of enhanced performance characteristics to benefit engine design. May include discussion of fuel retailers’ perspective and possibly include lubricants and advanced lubricants.

Several years have passed since the introduction of mass-market battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles in the U.S., and today a growing number of models are entering showroom floors. Now joined by hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, electric drive technology is providing an array of model offerings with zero or near-zero tailpipe emissions. At the same time, however, adoption rates of these technologies have not progressed as quickly as hoped. This session examines the state of electric drive technology, market transition to date, sales strategies, dealers’ experience and wireless charging technology, among others. Government and industry experts will share perspectives on technology trends, policy objectives and markets incentives.

Event
As nations adopt global agreements to address environmental concerns, cities and nations also are taking independent actions to address local and global issues. These initiatives, which include restricting or penalizing fuels and powertrains, will have lasting repercussions on the transportation market and mobility users, and could become trends that affect markets in the US and around the world. This panel session will review some of the more significant proposed initiatives that could influence the direction of the vehicles and fuels market, the motivations and perceptions behind them, and discuss their potential long term implications.
