Who we are

About L5AutoUSA

Christopher West is the founder of L5AutoUSA, a business that merges government affairs and public policy professionals with autonomous vehicle consultants. L5AutoUSA strives to educate, influence, and prepare both the private and public sectors, academia and policymakers on the future of autonomous vehicles and artificial intelligence.

Over the last decade, Chris has gained a profound understanding of autonomous technologies which, combined with his nationwide background in public affairs, has allowed him to uniquely address some of the technological and societal challenges of an autonomous world, focusing primarily on the two largest obstacles facing the future of mobility; government regulation(s) and general public acceptance. As a thought-leader in the autonomous industry, Chris has presented before and advised numerous transportation planners, local and state elected officials, autonomous vehicle and technology companies, private-sector entities and local, regional and national transportation planning organizations.
