Translating technology to real world deployment
We are currently accepting abstracts relating to the following key topics:
Research has been advancing driverless technology rapidly over the last two years. Now as the research moves to deployment we will explore how we prioritise the social, economic and environmental implications for communities with a focus on urban planning and supporting people with mobility issues.
REAL WORLD DEMONSTRATIONS
Hear from those that are leading the deployment and trialling of driverless vehicle technologies. Participants will be provided with the opportunity to understand the lessons learnt from these deployments and also network with others to build a community practice around how to achieve successful deployments.
VIEW AROUND THE WORLD (INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE)
Every country is taking a slightly different approach to how driverless vehicle technology and applications are being prioritised. Leading world experts will share current and future priorities and how these activities contribute to the organisations or country’s objectives to accelerate the introduction of driverless vehicle technology.
INSURANCE AND SECURITY
The personal and public insurance sector is likely to undergo a significant transformation following the introduction of driverless vehicles. This session provides the opportunity to explore how the insurance industry is responding and what future scenarios might look like for insurance products.
Security of service provision is integral to the successful integration of driverless vehicle technology. Hear from those at the forefront of developing an assurance and security protocol to protect the integrity of the service.
Society is going to be a significant beneficiary from the introduction of driverless vehicles, but is the community prepared for it and the transformation that will result? This session explores how the community is being engaged, how community attitudes are changing and where there are still barriers to acceptance.
FUNDING MODEL FOR THE FUTURE
Driverless vehicles will herald a significant disruption to the generation of traditional funding methods for the operation of the transport system (fuel, licensing, registration). A variety of options are being explored on how to future proof the ongoing management and maintenance of the network. This session provides the opportunity to understand the pros and cons of the various scenarios currently being considered.
As the technology evolves and community acceptance towards driverless technology grows, policy makers are faced with the task of keeping up. This is an issue being faced by all regulators and governments around the world and this session provides the opportunity for industry and regulators to share how policy and innovation can complement each other.
