Houston TranStar Tour

Come enjoy refreshments and get a rare glimpse inside the world of Houston TranStar – the region’s central command center where city, county, state and federal agencies coordinate and share information to keep roadways clear, motorists safe, and respond to emergencies.

Automated Vehicle Demonstration

Be the first of your colleagues to ride in a fully automated self-driving vehicle! This tour will be available for Summit participants and is a perfect way to jump start your experience. Seating is limited and is on a first-come, first-serve basis; so don’t hesitate to register: Click Here.

Connected Vehicle Demonstration

The Texas Proving Grounds Partnership will display an F-150 which has been retrofitted with LIDAR, Camera, RADAR and DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communications) systems. Each of these sensors will be connected to a display monitor on a nearby table that will demonstrate what each sensor “sees.” Attendees will be able to step in front of the sensors and see how they would be picked up by the vehicle.
