This course will provide an in-depth look at the breakthroughs in connected and automated vehicles technologies that are poised to revolutionize local and national transportation systems for decades to come, potentially bringing significant changes to the built environment and how residents live, work and move around their communities. As technology manufacturers, software developers, auto companies, universities and many other professionals continue to imagine and test
these technologies and methods to optimize the nation’s transportation system, agency officials, engineers and planners should have a working knowledge of them to make decisions about future local transportation needs and investments.

How NJ, NY and PA agencies are preparing for connected and Autonomous Vehicles

Accreditation: 1 PDH credit, NJ, PA & NY
Speakers: K.R. Marshall, PE, Vice President and Senior ITS Manager, WSP USA, Inc. – Facilitator; NJDOT (Invited); PANYNJ – (Invited); NJTA – (Invited)
This course will provide an open discussion with the NJ, NY and PA agencies on the policy and technical issues their agencies are facing with the advent of CAV technology. Current policies and specific initiatives of each agency will be discussed, as well as their respective view of the agency on how their facilities will be impacted.

Professional Engineering Ethics 101

Accreditation: 2 PDH credits, NJ, PA, & NY
Speakers: Lawrence P. Powers, Esq, Partner, Hoagland, Longo, Moran, Dunst & Doukas, LLP
The overall learning objective is to expose the seminar participants to various engineering related professional and statutory codes of ethics in order to inculcate ethics awareness and an understanding of ethical standards common to all jurisdictions, including those of the participants, so that the participants understand the boundaries of ethical engineering behavior.
Part I – This will be an introduction to common statutory and regulatory ethics rules, wherein the participants will be taught why they exist, how they govern their practice and what the practical implications of unethical behavior can be. Participants will be given examples of common ethics rules and some illustrative case studies to consider, followed by instruction on how violations of such ethics rules are commonly dealt with by the administrative agencies which have jurisdiction over their practice locales.
Part II – This will be an introduction to the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE) Code of Ethics, wherein the participants will be taught why they exist, how they were developed, how professional codes of ethics can affect their practice and what the practical implications of unethical behavior can be to members of professional engineering societies.  Participants will be given examples of common ethics rules and some illustrative case studies to consider, followed by instruction on how violations of such ethics rules are commonly dealt with by NSPE and state engineering societies which have jurisdiction over their practice locales, with a particular emphasis on the similarities and differences between governmental and professional society sanctions.
Part III – This will be a discussion of the practical reasons for ethical practice, with examples of how unethical practice can present professional liability and legal issues, licensure issues and moral issues based upon case studies where unethical practice has resulted in the impairment of the public health, safety and welfare. Participants will be challenged with using their new knowledge to suggest resolutions for hypothetical ethics problems posed by the instructor.
