Poster Sessions

AUTOMATED VEHICLES SYMPOSIUM 2017 – POSTER SESSIONS

Two poster sessions provide the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge work from across all topics related to automated vehicles. The first session, on Tuesday July 11, 2017, has peer-reviewed research posters, presenting a discrete and completed research project, akin to what would be published in an academic journal article or presented in a TRB poster session.

The second session, on Wednesday July 12, 2017, showcases a broader range of content in the field of vehicle automation. Wednesday posters are more free-form and include introductions to research centers or programs, research agendas, prospective studies, and work in progress; or other posters that are relevant and of high quality but don't quite fit into the mold of a traditional research poster presentation.
