Description

The Midlands Intelligent Mobility Conference 2018

Following on the thought provoking Midlands Intelligent Mobility Conference last year IMPART and Transport Systems Catapult are partnering again for The Midlands Intelligent Mobility Conference 2018. This conference will look at the myths about future transport and explore the real prospects of integrating autonomous vehicles into our roads. Prof Phil Blythe, Professor of Intelligent Transport Systems and Chief Scientific Advisor for the Department of Transport will open the discussion with a plenary session on how new transport systems could change the way we travel, and how mobility needs will change during the transition period towards full automation.

The conference will cover the following topics through presentations and workshop discussions:

  • Transition to driverless cars

  • Safety issues related to the adoption of autonomous vehicles

  • Accessibility to transport

  • How work productivity will be affected?

  • What jobs will be redundant and what jobs will be needed when intelligent mobility becomes a reality?

  • Outlook at future traffic, expectations and reality check

  • The impact of emerging car technologies on the environment

High-level speakers will present government and industry initiatives to support Intelligent Mobility and help develop the UK skills base. Special sessions will promote new collaborations with the academic sector.

Full programme details can be found at our website www.impart-upp.co.uk

Conference Participation

Contributors are invited to participate in the presentations, exhibition, posters and workshop discussions.

Presentations

We have a programme including parallel sessions for presentations. The presentations will explore what are the potential benefits from intelligent mobility and how to achieve them, but also looking at the disbenefits and what should we do to avoid them.

Workshops

There will be two parallel workshops for open discussion on the challenges for intelligent mobility and how to promote positive outcomes from intelligent mobility applications as quickly as possible. One of the workshops will focus on the actions for individuals and industry, while the other will focus on the actions for government and local authorities.

Posters

Posters on current related research will provide opportunities for networking and discussion during the conference. We are looking for posters that clearly describe intelligent mobility challenges, antecedents, approaches, plans and milestones. The deadline poster submission is Monday 4th December 2017. There is a template available for structuring posters, to request it send a message to info@impart-upp.co.uk. Also contact us If you would like submit a poster using your own template.

Exhibition

This year's conference will showcase the best the Midlands has to offer in the area of Intelligent Mobility. Over 20, individually selected SMEs, 'start-ups' and Local Authorities will present their projects, products and services, including innovative journey planning tools, through to sustainable transport options and emerging government initiatives – all to support the smarter, greener and more efficient movement of people and goods.
