October 19, 2021 (Cyber) Security Risk: Aligning the Transit Industry and Vendors to Address Increasing Cybersecurity Challenges  -  Online

10a.m.- 10:30a.m. (PT) | Link to register

How can the transit industry and vendors align to address increasing cybersecurity challenges? This webinar looks at research to help public transit agencies understand the cybersecurity risks posed by the role some vendors play in their systems, and align vendors’ interests with the agency’s to better understand, mitigate, and respond to threats. The research team is delving into crucial behind-the-scenes details with these issues by conducting interviews, reviewing best practices, and examining U.S. policy on cybersecurity in public transportation and potential changes from the new Administration. The researchers will provide operational recommendations for public transit operators and supply chain of vendors to adequately combat critical cyber risks.

November 16, 2021 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems & Automated Features: Are They Driving Us to Safety?  -  Online

10a.m.- 10:30a.m. (PT) | Link to register.

Automotive companies are constantly striving to enhance their vehicles to minimize and ultimately eliminate driver errors and enhance safety. Various advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated features are designed to warn, and in some cases, take over certain driving maneuvers. These systems are part of vehicles with driver assist technology, which are vital for the successful deployment of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) in the near future. What are these features? How do they work? How does a driver’s behavior vary when driving a vehicle with ADAS or automated features in rural, urban, and freeway driving scenarios? This webinar explores these questions based on research from evaluating drivers’ behavioral response to scenarios when driving vehicles with and without features like lane departure warning (LDW), blind spot warning (BSW), over speed warning (OSW), lane keep assist (LKA), and adaptive cruise control (acc).
