In this discussion moderated by Stanford’s Bryant Walker Smith, the Honorable Rodney Slater talks about the opportunities, challenges and best pathways for successful transportation innovation and policymaking. Honorable Rodney Slater, former US Secretary of Transportation during the Clinton Administration (in office 1997 – 2001), addressed the policies and innovations behind the present transformation of America’s transportation systems, and the leadership that will be required to finish the job.

Secretary Slater offered historical perspective from his executive roles at the Federal Highway Administration and Department of Transportation (DOT), during which, among other significant developments, key public-private partnerships and cohesive visions of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) emerged. Drawing on predictions made by policymakers and transportation innovators in 2001, he assessed the progress of vehicle automation, driver-assistive technologies, V2X communications and other ITS issues and trends. Now an advisor to current national transportation leaders, major corporations, state governments and international organizations, Secretary Slater shared his perspective on key developments over recent years and the opportunities and challenges ahead as new innovations continue to transform America’s transportation landscape towards 2025 and beyond.

 

Bryant Walker Smith, CIS Resident Fellow, moderated this session.
