Mercer Island will host a policy conference on self-driving vehicles on Sept. 19 at the Mercer Island Community Center.
The conference will run from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and is presented by a partnership between Transpo Group, Northwest Network and the Washington State Transportation Commission, sponsored by Lyft and Sentec.
The policy conference will bring together regional stakeholders to discuss policy issues arising from self-driving technology. Speakers include Ryan Snyder of the Transpo Group, David Dixon of Stantec, Calli Cenizal of Lyft, Anne Brown with the University of Oregon and Sanjay Gokhale with King County Metro.
Self-driving cars could dramatically affect the way people commute and move throughout the region as more of them hit the roads in coming years.
