Where does building trust for AVs start? With education and involving the public in the along the way. One organization is dedicating to helping the public understand the facts as a way to build trust and acceptance.

On this episode of Mobility: Decoding the Secret Sauce, we talk to Ed Niedermeyer, Communications Director at Partners for Automated Vehicle Education (PAVE). PAVE is a coalition of industry, nonprofits, and academics with a common goal: to inform the public about automated vehicles and their potential so everyone can play a role in shaping our future.

Ed joins us to talk about PAVE’s goal of raising public awareness of what is on the roads today and what is possible for the future of autonomous transportation. He talks about the importance of educating the public, socializing the technology to build trust, and holding space for conversations around automated vehicles.
