Next steps for intelligent mobility: autonomous vehicles, future-proofing infrastructure and developing a smart transport system

Morning, Thursday, 11th January 2018

Hallam Conference Centre, 44 Hallam Street, London W1W 6JJ

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will consider the next steps for developing a smart transport system in the UK, following the announcement of an Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill in the Queen’s Speech, and the commitments set out in the Clean Growth Strategy to further develop the transport infrastructure and take advantage of emerging technologies.


It also follows the Autumn Budget pledge of £540m to support the growth of electric, and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV), including more charging points and the target for driverless cars to be on UK roads by 2021; the recently announced HGV ‘platooning’ trial; and the launch of MERIDIAN as a testing hub for CAV.


Delegates will examine the future of public funding and opportunities for attracting private investment, as well as considering the challenges for developing an insurance regime fit for CAV, which protects private and commercial road users.


Further sessions discuss the latest thinking and research on intelligent mobility, on ‘mobility-as-a-service’ within smart cities and local transport provision, and on the use of data and integration of technology to improve journeys and passenger experience.


Delegates will also review the provisions for cyber security and the priorities for protecting private data within intelligent transport systems, in light of recently published guidance.
