Connected and Automated Vehicle Engineering 2017
Engineering for adoption of autonomy on the road
25 - 26 September 2017 | Hotel La Tour, Birmingham, UK
How do we level up?
The last few years has seen a global push in automated vehicle technologies, with many new vehicles today already equipped with advanced software and sensors to regulate speed in traffic, self-park and brake in an emergency.
Most people now agree that, while Level 5 Automation (where the driver is no longer required) may still be a number of years away, increased self-driving automation is a not-too-distant inevitability.
Connected and Automated Vehicle Engineering 2017 is a new, collaborative event brought to you by the IET and IMechE that aims to provide key information and knowledge from a technical and engineering perspective on the core challenges associated with increasing the levels of automation and the ways in which we can overcome the barriers to push the technology forward.
5 Reasons to attend
- Hear about the successes, challenges and lessons learned from key UK trials and projects
- Learn more about the future of CAV technology and how we might overcome the core technical, social and economic roadblocks
- Network with fellow participants and engage with the international programme of speakers and industry experts
- Discuss and debate some of the core challenges facing the implementation of CAV
- Take away practical ideas and solutions that could benefit you and your organisation
What you’ll hear about
- An update and feedback on the success of the 4 main UK autonomous vehicle trails
- Insights into the UK CITE and A2/M2 connected vehicle initiatives
- The latest updates on regulation from both a UK and EU perspective
- Thoughts, ideas and opinions on the various human factors that may disrupt the transition of CAV and the ways they could potentially be overcome
- The latest design, development and testing methods being implemented by engineers
- Insights into the MOVE-UK project and the “connected validation” rapid testing initiative
- The threats to CAV technology and the precautions being undertaken by designers and developers to incorporate cyber security into vehicle and system design
Key topic areas include:
- International regulation and governmental perspectives
- Testing and validation
- Human factors
- Functional safety and cyber security
- Sensing and response
- Communication and Connectivity
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
