In February 2020, PAVE hosted a two-hour panel and interactive workshop session at AV20 in Silicon Valley, CA. The workshop, entitled “Why Engaging with the Public and Public Perception are Key Success Factors in AV Deployment,” gave participants an interactive opportunity to pose questions and posit solutions to issues in public engagement with AVs. After 60 minutes of panel discussion and Q&A, attendees were broken into smaller groups and given the chance to work through questions such as “What is the biggest barrier to public acceptance of AVs?” and “What is the most effective tool in helping build public trust in AVs?”.
PAVE member speakers included:
Kelly A. Nantel – Vice President of Communications and Advocacy, National Safety Council
John Maddox – Senior Director, Autonomous Vehicle Safety, Lyft
Sally Frykman – Vice President of Communications, Velodyne Lidar
Ken Bracht – Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer, National Council on Aging
Justin A. Erlich – VP, Head of Strategy, Policy & Legal, Voyage
