Great for a quick update on the industry on your drive to or from work.
Driven (both the website and the podcast) is a great resource to learn everything about how Detroit is reinventing the way the world moves through mobility. The wolf hears all about the tech coming out of Silicon Valley but now it’s time to hear Detroit’s story!
Cool way to learn about autonomous vehicles from the MOBILITY CITY
I am fortunate enough to get to speak with the leading voices in connected and autonomous vehicle tech and it’s an exciting movement. Mobility has the potential to change how we live and work and it’s a pretty big deal. This podcast discusses the rapid fire developments, straight from the heart of the Detroit region. This is where mobility is happening. Highly recommended.
