Mobile Technology Association of Michigan’s Detroit Chapter of Mobile Monday Michigan explores connected mobility – beyond the car – to learn how Michigan is engaging in this high-growth area of connected technologies across all transportation sectors

MobileMondayMichigan-LogoDETROIT, MI – Mobile Monday Detroit will explore connected transportation / mobility to help our audience understand what it means beyond the car.  Expert speakers will discuss connected mobility as it applies to all modes of transportation, the infrastructure that facilitates the connection, the laws that regulate it, and the software that enables the connection. The event takes place on Monday, June12th, 5:30 p.m. at RIIS in Troy.

Connected transportation / mobility is a very diverse field requiring knowledge, resources and involvement from many partners to make it happen, and correspondingly, it provides many unique and interesting opportunities in a wide variety of specialty areas that can enable extremely rewarding careers. Michigan is leading the way nationally and internationally in many of these fields, and our speakers will give us context to understand the state’s role in this segment of the connected technologies industry.

Speakers include:
