The route towards fully automated vehicles on the road raises multiple engineering challenges. Connected and Automated Vehicle Engineering 2017 brings together engineers across the mechanical and electrical disciplines to address the roadblocks in achieving level 5 autonomy.

Understanding the limitations of sensor systems and processing technologies is key to developing intelligent and adaptable autonomous vehicles. Functional safety is vital to safe road adoption, as is understanding human factors and user interaction with the system.

Hearing from those conducting vehicle testing is crucial to ensuring strong reliability and cyber security.

Join the IET and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers on the 25 and 26 September for our specialist conference, specifically catered to the engineering community.
