UCLA CAEV (Connected Autonomous Electric Vehicle) Annual Conference

March 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

In UCLA, the Connected Autonomous Electric Vehicle (CAEV) Consortium is working with its stakeholders towards creating thought leadership in the field of electric and autonomous vehicles. To support this leadership activity, UCLA held its first workshop in June 2017 and a Round Table discussion with industry and government leaders in September 2018. The outcome of these two key events has propelled the need to host a technology-centric workshop on the subject which is being scheduled for March 5, 2019. At the event, UCLA faculty/researchers along with Industry and Government leadership will discuss the issues facing this fledgling field as it transitions to an industry. Topics discussed will include but not limited to:

EV and AV Technology and Policy considerations in California and the United States
EV battery technologies and range considerations
Energy management in EV and EV charging
Advances in Autonomous Technologies
Role of AI, ML, and Blockchain in AV development
Advanced EV/AV product design paradigms
GPS and sensor technology for location tracking based services
EV charging infrastructure and relevant technologies
Vehicle-Grid integration technologies and applications and role of electric grid operators
Open Vehicle-Grid Communications and Controls Interface
New EV protocols such as ISO 15118 for mobility and payments
Using renewable energy for sustainable electric transportation
Variable transportation modalities such as e-scooter, e-bike, e-car, e-van, e-bus and e-truck
New models of car sharing in the context of EV and AV
Transportation policies, regulations and last mile services in urban settings
Technology advances and policy frameworks to keep up with such advances
