From the Steel City to finalist in the Smart City Challenge, Pittsburgh sure has come a long way. Much of this transformation can be seen in the strong robotics and computer science programs at Carnegie Mellon, but CMU is also leading the nation’s efforts to improve mobility through its national University Transportation Center (UTC) known as Traffic21.
We invited Deputy Director of Traffic21, and all around mobility and PGH tech scene guru, Courtney Ehrlichman to join us and talk mobility, Pittsburgh, and the future of mobility.
Our conversation dives into the City’s and the university’s efforts, the importance of mentoring women in tech and mobility (and coined the new term STEMinists to describe strong advocates of women in science!).
