Future Challenges for Autonomous Vehicles

Upper Lounge, Reed Hall, Streatham Drive, University of Exeter, EX4 4QR

Friday 1 June, 14:00 - 16:00, with a networking reception from 16:00 until 17:00

Information

The introduction of Autonomous Vehicles on public roads throughout the UK has turned from fiction to reality. These vehicles are likely to radically transform the lives of citizens, by making roads safer, providing more environmentally friendly travel, and enhancing productivity. However, the number of challenges to be faced cannot be underestimated also, whether through technological, mobility or legal.

This panel event, comprising of experts from across the spectrum will provide the audience with an insight as to the challenges that will be faced.

  • What is the likely impact of autonomous vehicles?
  • What are the mobility challenges to be faced by autonomous vehicles?
  • Are the legal hurdles too significant to be overcome?
  • And how are we currently dealing with some of these challenges?

These are just some of the questions which will be answered by the panel at this event. Attendees will then have the opportunity to ask questions and network.
