Dave Muyres addresses PodCar City Conference in Stockholm

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

Dave Muyres pre­sented at the 5th annual Pod­Car City Con­fer­ence in Stock­holm Swe­den on Sep­tem­ber 7th, 2011.  The inter­na­tional audi­ence was con­vened to dis­cuss the world’s grow­ing inter­est in Pod­Cars as a new form of urban trans­porta­tion.  A high­light of the con­fer­ence was the recent announce­ment that the new Pod­Car sys­tem at Heathrow was fully up and run­ning.  Sev­eral other new ini­tia­tives around the world were also announced includ­ing new sys­tems in Korea, India, the United States and the Mid­dle East.  Dave shared thoughts about how to build the same level of pas­sion and allure into Pod­Cars as we cur­rently have for today’s cars.  We need to build excite­ment around what hap­pens next or change towards new sus­tain­able and energy effi­cient forms of trans­porta­tion will be very slow.  Dave speaks fre­quently about the role of Inno­va­tion in dri­ving change within the trans­porta­tion indus­try in part­ner­ship with NewNorth Cen­ter for Design in Busi­ness and OnGo­ing Trans­porta­tion.

“Futurama II: Mobilizing America’s Transportation Revolution” White Paper Released!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009

We are please to announce the recent pub­li­ca­tion of the OnGo­ing­Trans­porta­tion White Paper, titled Futu­rama II Mobi­liz­ing America’s Trans­porta­tion Rev­o­lu­tion.  The White Paper was co-authored by David Muyres, for­merly a Vice Pres­i­dent at the Art Cen­ter Col­lege of Design and Exec­u­tive at John­son Con­trols Inc. and now with Hunt­Green LLC, and Geoff War­dle, the Direc­tor of Advanced Mobil­ity at the Art Cen­ter Col­lege of Design.  OnGo­ing­Trans­porta­tion is a siren call for a bold new approach to the future of Amer­i­can trans­porta­tion. The OnGo­ing­Trans­porta­tion ini­tia­tive calls for the cre­ation of a team of the best and bright­est minds to develop a new long term vision that will  serve as a blue­print for the next 50 years of trans­porta­tion needs in the U.S. The vision will inspire well-designed, envi­ron­men­tally and eco­nom­i­cally sus­tain­able options  as part of a totally inte­grated national trans­porta­tion sys­tem. The blue­print will inform sound, long-term pol­icy and leg­is­la­tion, facil­i­tate inno­v­a­tive tech­nol­ogy and financ­ing, and encour­age entirely new busi­ness mod­els, allow­ing Amer­i­can entre­pre­neurs to cre­ate jobs and lead the world in trans­porta­tion solu­tions.
