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.

CAVE

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
