Technology Takes the Wheel® is a free, educational seminar series that explores autonomous vehicles and their societal impacts.

Following the COVID-19 (coronavirus) update provided by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, UToledo is taking action to reduce exposure risk for the safety of our faculty, staff, students and campus visitors. Therefore, we will be canceling the Technology Takes the Wheel event.
