About the Workshop
This two-day strategic visioning workshop focused on defining and advancing a common agenda around positioning Minnesota for the deployment of automated vehicles (AVs). The workshop convened representatives from across the public, private, academic, and nonprofit sectors and featured presentations from a wide range of experts. Participants also engaged in interactive discussions and small group working sessions focused on identifying and prioritizing strategies. Outcomes from the workshop, which will include a summary document featuring an action agenda, will be used to help determine the initial direction for AVs in Minnesota.
