Here is my conversation with Kris Carter on Boston’s role in emerging automotive technology. I talk to him about autonomous vehicles, electric vehicle and charging infrastructure, e-bikes and a possible picture of the future.
Kris Carter is the Co-Chair of the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics. He is a non-practicing engineer, an optimistic urban planner. With the Mechanics, Kris has helped lead the City’s overhaul of curb management technology, crafted the Streetcaster program to improve equity in mobility, launched the City’s digital storytelling team, created and managed the Public Space Invitational, built the nationally-replicated Boston’s Safest Driver competition, and oversees the City’s autonomous vehicle research efforts.
