Automated Vehicles: Planning the Next Disruptive Technology
April 19, 2016 - April 20, 2016
The era of driverless cars and trucks is just around the corner. What do you need to know to plan for the arrival of this technology?
The potential societal benefits expected from automated vehicles (AVs) – more popularly known as driverless cars – are numerous. Enhanced personal mobility (particularly for ‘car-less’ populations), a decline in the number of injuries and fatalities, increased productivity due to freed up time for other activities while driving, and a reduction in congestion levels are just some of the benefits anticipated. As the technology is being applied to the movement of goods as well as people, a number of commercial benefits are also expected.
