Leadership Circle Forum Reports
The Leadership Circle convened in New York City April 19 – 21, 2015 for their first forum of 2015. The forum was co-hosted by New York City Department of Transportation, Uber Technologies, and Peek Traffic. The forum included workshop time for the three startups identified at the Leadership Circle’s inception— goods movement, vehicle-to-infrastructure deployment, and big data analytics. The forum also featured a variety of guest speakers and infrastructure tours to address the Leadership Circle’s additional 2015 priorities. This forum report presents a summary of the discussions and outcomes of the April meeting and identifies potential next steps to be taken in the coming months.
In the past year, the ITS America Leadership Circle has grown both in size and industry influence. The substantive contributions from the members of this group of leaders and innovators are transforming the way the private, public and academic sectors come together to support mobility across the United States. From establishment in 2013 until now, the Leadership Circle has strengthened ITS America’s thought leadership activities, while adding financial support to ITS America’s most vital operations; funding education efforts on Capitol Hill, groundbreaking ITS market data research and membership activities.
The Leadership Circle convened in Washington, D.C. on June 23-24, 2014, directly before the 2014 ITS America Capitol Hill Fly-In and Technology Showcase. The meeting focused on the three transportation startup concepts that the group had developed in two previous forums. In addition to reporting out on the progress of the startups, the Leadership Circle heard from industry leaders, innovators and disruptors working in the ITS space. This report presents a summary of the discussions and outcomes from the June meeting. The report also identifies next steps to be taken prior to and within subsequent meetings.
Exploring Innovation examines the influence of disruptive technologies on the transportation industry’s ability to change the status quo. The report also presents insights and key takeaways from the Forum, which included sessions with Intel Corp.’s leadership to discuss the impact of autonomous driving, the Internet of Things (IoT) and supply chain disruption as it relates to the end user. This report also discusses the progress of the three transportation “startup” concepts the group previously identified—developing a national ITS data source for shared private-public sector use, targeting the commercial vehicle industry with a comprehensive ITS strategy, and advancing vehicle-to-infrastructure technology deployment.
“Creative Disruption: Exploring Innovation in Transportation,” August 2013
The second Leadership Circle report presents a summary of the discussions and results from the August meeting. The group conducted an in-depth exploration of the shared transportation ecosystem in which all participants engage; followed by focusing more narrowly on developing new, problem-solving business models to accelerate innovation and investment in transportation.
Inaugural Leadership Circle Forum Report, April 2013
The 2013 ITS America Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee marked the first official gathering of the Leadership Circle. It was here that this group began to map out opportunities where technology and policy can be better paired to improve our nation’s transportation system.
