Smart Mobility – The Future of Transportation with a Conscience (LIVESTREAM)

September 29, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

| TIGER Talk

Please register by 10 pm on Tue Sep 28.
At 11 pm, we’ll email you a Zoom link to access LIVESTREAM the next day.

Please join Professor Chris Atkinson of The Ohio State University for this TIGER Talk which is at the intersection of “Technology” and “Responsibility.”

Smart Mobility – the convergence of electrified, connected, and automated vehicles and systems – needs to be developed as ‘transportation with a conscience’, where that conscience is environmental, social, economic, and increasingly public and human health-oriented. Society requires mobility – the movement of people, goods and services – but we need to develop future modes and models of mobility in a way that places people and the requirements of our communities first, and reduces the burdens that transportation imposes on our society and on our environment.


Chris Atkinson is a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at The Ohio State University, and the director of the Smart Mobility initiative at OSU, including through the OSU Center for Automotive Research. He has been an academic, an entrepreneur in the automotive field, and a program director at the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Project Agency – Energy (ARPA-E). Chris has a 30-year background in vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles and emissions reduction, as well as interests in advanced transportation and clean energy systems.
