SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 28, 2016) - The C3 Group will continue to drive the conversation on the evolution of transportation and mobility at its third annual Connected Mobility Summit, taking place in San Francisco on October 20.

The event brings together thought leaders from the automotive, technology, VC, government and academic communities for an interactive dialogue on the state of mobility -- with a special emphasis on the impact technology is having on urban transportation -- in an intimate, fun and uniquely informal setting.

Technology is rapidly transforming transportation. From Uber and Lyft's takedown of the taxi industry in San Francisco to Google's self-driving cars, this disruption is visible and ubiquitous in the Bay Area and quickly spreading to other urban areas.

The Connected Mobility Summit will feature innovative connected car technology demonstrations and interactive panel discussions. Participating companies in the Connected Mobility Summit will include Ford, Hyundai, Pioneer, AAA, Bosch, Continental, HERE, Kelley Blue Book, BlackBerry's QNX Software Systems and Navigant Research, among others. Thought leaders from automotive, technology, policy and research will discuss a variety of topics in interactive panel sessions, including:

  • Making Cities and Urban Transportation Smarter
  • Which Transportation Start-Ups Have Staying Power?
  • The Next-Generation of Automotive Infotainment
  • The Unintended Consequences of Self-Driving Cars
