NAV Series: Autonomous Road Vehicles
29 Apr 2014 09:45 - 17:30

We move into the realms of the sci-fi future, today, to look at developments in autonomous – or self-driving - road vehicles.

Autonomous driving has been developing rapidly since the 1980s, to the extent that some US states have already passed the necessary laws allowing autonomous cars on the roads. In this one day conference at the University of Nottingham, we’ll be looking at questions like: • What has been achieved so far? • What technical barriers remain? • What about concerns over misuse, including terrorism, privacy, and responsibility when things go wrong? • How will all stakeholder needs be met: can vulnerable road users and older vehicles be accommodated? • How far will automated driving develop? And • What milestones do we expect? Be there, or the cars will drive off without you! Prices: £80+vat for RIN and KTN members/£100+Vat for Non-Members. Read More
