Driving adoption at scale – essential activities to 2030

Join our panel session at 11:45 on 21 May with Rich Porter (Director of Tech and Innovation at Zenzic), Chris Reeves (HORIBA MIRA), Peter Stoker (Millbrook), Andy Harris (WMG) and Nick Chrissos (Cisco).

The panel will discuss scaling connected and self-driving technologies for market-ready services. Today trials of self-driving vehicles are gathering pace. But there are still only a small number of experimental vehicles on our roads. What is needed to rapidly scale these limited trials to significant demonstrations and ultimately to market-ready services?

This session will discuss the ecosystem needed to accelerate market adoption of self-driving technologies, with focus on cross sector collaboration, emphasising the importance of harnessing the skills, capabilities and regulations in a common direction and at the right time. The focus will be on the journey needed from the present day to 2030 and the vision needed to maximise the benefits of connected and self-driving vehicles as early as possible.

Testing of automated vehicles

Also hear from David Hynd at TRL on the independent testing of automated vehicles as a component of AV certification.

TRL has been instrumental in designing many of the testing regimes which make European vehicles the safest in the world. TRL is now at the forefront of connected and autonomous vehicle testing, developing the safety case and providing the safety assurance for most of the technology demonstrations and operator trials happening in the UK.

The methods being used will be discussed, as well as why a different approach to rigour is required for non-human driven vehicles; how only a combination of long history of research in this area coupled with a clear vision into the future is required to understand their interactions with and impact on their human driven counterparts.
