UPCOMING WEBINARS

Regulations “Driving” Vehicle Automation

POSTPONED

 

Gain insight on the developing rules and regulations for autonomous vehicles as early demonstration projects drive progress.

The year 2016 saw substantial evolution in vehicle automation—transitioning from novel concepts to actual implementation, such as Uber’s self-driving taxis and Otto’s class 8 driverless Anheuser delivery. Allowing and enabling these demonstrations and pilot programs to take place takes leadership at a legislative and regulatory level to ensure public safety while still letting technological innovation flourish. This webinar will cover:

  • Key factors and realistic timelines in developing regulations for automated vehicles
  • The federal government’s involvement in shaping local policies
  • Current opportunities and limitations of vehicle automation for fleet operators
  • The current pulse of the industry, media and general public on automated vehicles

Learn from leading experts on policies affecting vehicle automation and what you need to know as a fleet before you begin operation.

The Potential of Renewable Diesel for Your Fleet

Thursday, January 12, 2017
10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET

 

Learn about the vehicle emission benefits of renewable diesel and how it differs from biodiesel.

As a 100% drop-in fuel, renewable diesel offers GHG and criteria pollutant emissions reduction without any infrastructure or vehicle modification required. Leading agencies are already seeing its potential and use in the medium- and heavy-duty transportation space as a way to displace fossil diesel. This webinar will cover:

  • Core differences between biodiesel and renewable diesel
  • Fuel availability, cost, and procurement considerations
  • Environmental benefits and limitations
  • Vehicle performance and maintenance impacts
  • Case studies from fleets already using it

Learn from leading renewable diesel experts so you can understand whether it makes sense for your fleet.
