Autonomous Vehicles and Public Health

Laura Sandt
Director, Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety, UNC-CH

In this session, Dr. Laura Sandt will discuss a range of topics that affect the health of road users and hints at the connections between these topics – including the environment, social resiliency, and physical activity – and vehicle automation.
