May 21, 2019-- SANDAG has announced the formation of a Vision Advisory Panel to tap the expertise of Southern California industry leaders and help develop a strategy for a world-class transportation system that makes the best use of available and emerging technologies, resulting in a system that is smart, efficient, and accessible.

The Vision Advisory Panel will provide expert advice to SANDAG staff and the Board of Directors as they prepare the 2021 Regional Plan, an effort the agency undertakes every four years to explore how the San Diego region will grow and develop. The vision for the 2021 Regional Plan proposes a new approach to transform transportation in the San Diego region by providing compelling alternatives to driving alone. SANDAG will develop this bold new vision in 5 Big Moves that will deliver a fully integrated transportation system.

“The 2021 Regional Plan will invest in technology solutions that conveniently connect people to jobs and other major destinations,” said Antoinette Meier, SANDAG Principal Regional Planner. “The Vision Advisory Panel will provide input about deployment of technology solutions to help solve the complex transportation problems in our region.”

SANDAG will select up to ten experts from the following industry sectors to participate in the panel:

• Wireless communications
• Intelligent transportation systems
• Original equipment manufacturers (auto / bus / truck)
• Data analytics
• Internet of Things / connected vehicles
• Zero emission vehicles
• Artificial intelligence / automation
• Fleet management systems
• Wireless charging of motor vehicles
• Smart energy
• Software / mobile applications
• Venture funding / strategic partnerships

Industry leaders interested in contributing to the development of the region’s vision for a transformative transportation system are invited to submit an expression of interest to SANDAG by June 14, 2019.
