Advances in technology mean that we can look forward to the benefits of faster, more efficient and environmentally sound transport.

From 17:30

At Institution of Civil Engineers

One Great George Street, London SWIP 3AA

Advances in technology mean that we can look forward to the benefits of faster, more efficient and environmentally sound transport. However, some significant barriers and hazards remain to be overcome.  Some of the key questions relate to:

How can we construct the whole transport infrastructure environment to integrate the development of human and automated interactions?

Can we build transport systems which we can implicitly and confidently rely on once we give up being "in the driving seat"?

How can we build sensors which we can trust in all circumstances?

This Hazards Forum event will bring together expert speakers from a variety of diverse fields which will be key in solving these challenges.  

 Speakers include:

Driver's Reactions to Automated vehicle: why do partially automated vehicles crash? - Professor Neville A. Stanton, Director of the Human Factors Engineering Team, Transportation Research Group, University of Southampton 

The infrastructure implications of a mixed vehicle fleet - Speaker: Kate Carpenter, Divisional Director (Operational Road Safety), Jacobs

A hazardous journey ahead? Connected and automated vehicles - Speaker: George Filip, Knowledge Transfer Manager, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, Innovate UK
