    Intelligent Transportation Systems – The Future of Transportation

    in Business

    The way you get around today is changing. By that I mean our modes of transportation are morphing in ways we never thought possible. Much of the change behind the way we travel can be credited to innovative ideas. Think about it.  We are about to enter a new phase that will allow Vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure capabilities to collect massive amounts of data that can be shared with all drivers, making journeys safer and better for everyone on the road. Organizations of all sizes are coming together to create safe, efficient and seamless experiences for drivers, but the question still remains: how do we accelerate this innovation to create an even better future for transportation?

    Earlier this month, Xerox attended the Intelligent Transportation Systems World Congress 2014 conference in Detroit to explore the thinking on that very question.

    Joining us today to talk more about their time at the show and the future of transportation are Ken Philmus, senior vice president of Xerox’s Government and Transportation Sector, and Richard Harris, solutions director for Xerox’s International Government and Transportation Sector.

    in Parents


    Welcome to A Theory of Parenting on Blogtalkradio.com

    My name is Tammi Joyner

    I am your Host for the show.

    Today ATP would like to bring to your info on the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York City, NY.

    I had the chance to visit last Winter.  At that time, I took several pictures and  I made notes to my recorder.

    We loaded completed pictures on our facebook page.  

    The site brought up such a load of emotion, I started to research the Subject.

    Construction was in process on the structure, but a walk thru was provided by the City.

    The signs indicated "The First Glipse" was open to the public.

    I walked to the PATH from there I was able to use the new thru way to access Brookfield Mall.

     I also walked into the New Store Front that is connected to the new structure, which was not finished at that time.

    ABOUT THE WTC SITE - One World Observatory, Transportation Hub, WTC Retail, Procurement, Memorial & Museum - There are four building that I can see at this time also the 2 pools and museum and Path

    The Myth of Free Public Transportation

    in Politics

    I would like to put to rest the myth of free public transportation.  This is a favorite project of the progressive era, but it makes no economic, or even socially conscious, sense and I'll prove it.  Hope to hear your worldview now toll-freed 888-773-4496.

    Millennial Behaviors Impacting Transportation

    in Business

    Every generation has its own set of behaviors and norms. On this episode of Xerox radio, we discuss how the millennial generation will have a profound impact on the transportation industry. This generation’s behavioral trends will be a game changer for America’s transportation network – forcing it to become less dependent on the automobile and placing a higher value on public transit and other modes of transportation, like biking and walking.

    Episode guest, Parker Williams, senior vice president of Transportation Solutions at Xerox has over 30 years of public and private sector transportation experience.  Parker will discuss several ways that millennials are changing the industry by choosing to move in very different ways from their Baby Boomer and Generation X peers.

    Humans in the Loop: Germanwings 9525 & the Future of Autonomous Transportation

    in Technology

    Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon resume their discussion from last week about self-driving cars in light of the tragic news about Germanwings flight 9525. 

    Statistics show that pilot error has consistently caused between 50% and 60% of all airplane crashes over the decades. Deliberate sabotage accounts for another 3% to 10% annually. Then there's "other human error" accounting for another 6%. Large portions of the process of controlling a commercial aircraft have already been successfully automated. As with  self-driving cars: fully self-flying airplanes could be substantially less than perfect and yet still out-perform humans by a signficant margin. 

    Is it time for the switch? How hard (or easy) will it be?
