PAVE Virtual Panel: AV Education Meets The Public In Museums
The complexity of automated driving technology and its potential impacts on society make it a difficult subject to teach to more general audiences, particularly the younger people whose lives may be the most changed by it. Creating public education exhibits that cast light on this important topic present particular challenges. What do you focus on? How do you communicate such a complex topic in an approachable way? And possibly most important, how do you make the topic engaging to as many people as possible? Our guests in this week’s panel have tackled all these questions and more, and join us to share their experience in our latest virtual discussion.
Lucinda Yuen of Ford Motor Company’s global product development strategy and planning department helped develop an exhibit at the Michigan Science Center aimed at introducing kids to automated vehicle technology. Rebecca Posner, Social and Behavioral Research and Evaluation Lead at the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles in the UK worked on an exhibit called Driverless: Who is in control? at London’s Science Museum, exploring the evolution of autonomous vehicles on air, land and sea. Together, we will explore their unique insights into making AVs a more approachable topic for everyone.
