Top global executives and the U.S. Transportation Secretary will discuss how technology is changing mobility in urban areas. The Beyond Smart Cities: The Future of Urban Mobility keynote panel at CES® 2016 will take place at 11 AM Thursday, January 7 at the Westgate Theater. The session will focus on possibilities in the near future, including autonomous cars and buses, on-demand shuttles and more. Owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)TM, formerly the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies.

The keynote panel will be moderated by Kent Larson, Director, Changing Places Group, MIT Media Lab and panelists are:

  • Dr. Volkmar Denner, CEO and CTO, Robert Bosch GmbH
  • Secretary Anthony Foxx, U.S. Department of Transportation
  • Steve Mollenkopf, CEO, Qualcomm Incorporated
  • Prof. Amnon Shashua, Co-Founder, CTO and Chairman, Mobileye

“As cars increasingly become connected, technology will solve big urban transportation problems,” said Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, Consumer Technology Association. “This all-star lineup of panelists joining the CES stage will provide a glimpse into how technology is already and will further change urban mobility.”

Dr. Volkmar Denner has been CEO and CTO of leading technology and services provider Bosch since 2012. He oversees the $65 billion global company’s four business sectors – Mobility Solutions, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology. He is also a member of the managing board of the VDA (German Association of the Automotive Industry), a member of the executive board of BBUG (Baden-Baden Entrepreneur Talks), and the chair of the Association of Friends of the University of Stuttgart. Denner holds a PhD in physics from the University of Stuttgart.

Secretary Anthony Foxx joined the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) after serving as the mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, from 2009 to 2013. Under Foxx’s leadership, the DOT is establishing initiatives that employ modern innovation to solve problems in a rapidly changing world. Secretary Foxx recently launched the Smart City Challenge, a competition that will enable mid-sized American cities to apply for federal resources which will be used to show what is possible when technology is used to address transportation challenges of the future. The winning city will be awarded up to $40 million to implement bold, data-driven ideas by making transportation safer, easier, and more reliable. The Secretary has also pledged to issue a rule requiring the use of vehicle-to-vehicle communication technology by the end of 2016.

Steve Mollenkopf is CEO of Qualcomm Incorporated, and also serves on the Company’s board of directors. He began his Qualcomm career as an engineer and, for more than 20 years, has helped define and implement Qualcomm’s strategy and technologies that propelled smartphones into the mainstream. Prior to his role as CEO, Mollenkopf served as president and COO of Qualcomm Incorporated.

Prof. Amnon Shashua co-founded Mobileye in 1999. Today, approximately 10 million cars from 23 automobile manufacturers rely on Mobileye technology to make their vehicles safer to drive. In August 2014, Mobileye claimed the title for largest Israeli IPO ever, by raising $1B at a market cap of $5.3B. In addition, an early version of Mobileye’s autonomous driving technology was deployed as an "autopilot" feature in October, 2015, and will evolve to support more autonomous features in 2016 and beyond. Prof. Shashua holds the Sachs chair in computer science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Kent Larson directs the Changing Places research group at the MIT Media Lab. He is also director of the MIT House Research Consortium and the MIT Living Labs initiative in the School of Architecture and Planning. Before his work at MIT, Larson practiced architecture for 15 years in New York City, with work published in Architectural Record, Progressive Architecture, Global Architecture, the New York Times, A+U, and Architectural Digest.
