Over the past several years, the South by Southwest Interactive Festival has rapidly become one of the most prominent technology and innovation gatherings in the world. This year, the festival’s focus was broadened to include thought leaders in the new Intelligent Future theme, giving more room to the Internet of Things and how it can improve the efficiency of our cities and society.

CTR Director, Chandra Bhat, was selected to present his panel on Driverless Cars – Implications for Travel Behavior, a topic he has studied and lectures about regularly. Much media attention has already been dedicated to the technology of autonomous vehicles specifically, but this panel explored how the adoption of this new technology may impact the travel and consumption choices consumers make on a daily basis.

The NPR affiliate in Austin, KUT, also sat down with Dr. Bhat to discuss the topic.
