The mobility sector is rapidly changing, guided by shifts towards electric vehicles, mobility as a service (MaaS), connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs). Each one of these trends could influence everything from our daily commute, to the design of our cities. CAVs, however, are among the most significant technological revolutions of modern times. They can reduce accidents and CO2 emissions, improve driver information sharing and make travelling safer and more enjoyable by connecting vehicles with other vehicles, traffic systems, and moving objects and removing the need for a human driver.
Before reaping the benefits of CAVs, public and private interests must first address the challenges that come with a new technology, such as defining a regulatory framework and industry standards, resolving safety and security hurdles, provisioning smart road infrastructure and cellular network infrastructure, and advocating for public acceptance.
This webinar aims at providing an overview of the benefits, technologies, and regulatory frameworks regarding CAVs. We will discuss the developments and state of CAVs solutions and address the most common concerns and regulatory challenges, such as safety standards, cybersecurity, liability, and licensing.
