Technology is enabling a transport revolution. The future is likely to involve shared use of self-driving, non-polluting vehicles that communicate with each other to improve safety and efficiency of their operation, and share data with the infrastructure to enable effective network and fleet management. Speakers include: Julian Turner, Westfield Sportcars; Graeme Smith, Oxbotica; Richard Robinson, Strategy Analytics; Roberto Ponticelli, Horiba MIRA; Toby Poston, BVRLA; James Taylor, DriveNow; Toby Thornton, WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff, Sam Chapman, The Floow and Dan Freeman, Direct Line Group
What opportunities and options will be presented? These may include low-speed pods that can operate in pedestrianised areas supporting social inclusion. We shall also see automated delivery of goods. What should be the impact on people and communities? Will the ideal future be delivered through market forces or will government coordination / funding / legislation be needed? Whilst technology enables the future, it must be developed to meet user requirements that are not yet clear. At this event, we shall share ideas about that potential future so that we can better derive the technical requirements and understand the business models that might operate. Who will be the winners and losers? Come and share your thoughts.
