Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Energy and the Future of Advanced Mobility

John Komar and Dr. Justin Gammage, ACE

Energy that powers the movement of people and goods around the world is undergoing changes that are creating transformational opportunities for emissions reduction and increases in efficiency.  Innovation in energy storage and transfer, climatic aerodynamics and the use of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things “IoT” on our roadways are bringing concepts like GM’s Vision Zero:  Zero Emissions, Zero Crashes and Zero Congestion.  This discussion will dive into the foundational technologies driving the changes in the mobility sector and highlight some of the near term challenges along with all the opportunities being created for the innovators of the future.
