Welcome to Podcar City 2019!

Come to San Jose to learn about, hear and discuss planning and deployment opportunities, incorporating automated, electric and shared transportation technologies!

Over 20 variations of podcar systems are being deployed today, offering cost-effective ways to enhance transit and help meet the challenges of urban congestion, environmental concerns and mobility for all. Larger players, such as Ericsson communication systems, NASA, Google, Amazon and a series of strong IT companies in Silicon Valley are getting involved, boosting the acceleration of automated transit forward. 

Podcar City 2019 focuses on cities and their urgent need on making a reality of new modes of public, automated transportation through technology, planning and business opportunities. Through discussions and information exchange, we will separate hype from reality and uncover practical solutions which are being investigated today to address real problems.

Why attend?

This year’s conference will feature an exceptional range of speakers and sessions on cutting-edge developments in advanced transit.

The program is geared towards open discussion and knowledge sharing, providing a great opportunity to pass along your knowledge, insights and services to others dedicated to making a better future and mobility for all.
