I’m so excited and proud to share the final product of my fellowship, a guide for local and state government agencies. I believe it is the government’s actions that will determine how they are integrated into society and if the impacts are largely positive or negative. The intent of this guide is to outline the role of government in the integration of driverless vehicles in society and present the information that local and regional governments need to inform planning and decision-making –now and in the future. The Guide, titled “Driving Towards Driverless: A Guide for Government Agencies” can be found here.

You are amazing!!!!!
Congratulations, very well done. I enjoy your tight writing style, complete coverage of all of the issues, and balance of presentation/distribution techniques.
You made the most of this opportunity and I’m proud to be part of a leadership team that allowed it to flourish. Recommendations to the next WBP fellowship winner would be helpful.
