Connected and autonomous vehicles will play a significant role in a future transport system, offering mobility assistance for an ageing population. From driverless cars to unmanned aerial vehicles, challenges in innovation will bring together the transport and ICT sectors to address challenges in safety, cyber security and public acceptance.
Essential reading if you have an interest in or are involved in the design and introduction of connected and autonomous vehicles! This report explores some of the unintended consequences that emerged from a collaborative workshop convened by the IET Transport Sector and provides recommendations from 70 participating experts on strategies to help mitigate the impact of such consequences.
How will we deliver ADAS and autonomous vehicles and ensure the safety of the new systems they require? The IET delivered a panel on the safety challenges on the path to autonomy at the Active Safety Europe 2016: “ADAS to Autonomous” Munich, Germany. Panellists from Tata Motors European Technical Centre, HORIBA MIRA Ltd, and Jaguar Land Rover explained how we will demonstrate the technology maturity, reliability and safety of the software required for automated driving.
The IET and ITS-UK will be hosting a Special Interest Session at the ITS European Congress in Glasgow in June 2016.
