How will an autonomous future affect you?

by Australian Road Research Board on September 28, 2017

Whether you are an early adopter of new technology, or yet to be convinced that driverless cars are on the horizon, Adelaide is where you need to be this November for the 2nd International Driverless Vehicle Summit (IDVS2017).

The purpose of IDVS2017 is not to instill in you the fear that the world as you know it won’t be recognisable in 20 years’ time, nor to convince you that our future will be dominated by robots; rather to give you a voice to participate in a very important conversation - to come along on this journey of change and to learn from those pioneering in this space. To position yourself at the front of the pack to shape our transport future and gain the answer to the all-important question: how will this affect me?

Smart phones that talk to cars, cars that that talk to parking lots and roads, roads that talk to traffic lights and public transport – it hardly seems real but it is happening. It’s not just about technological advances in this space, but how the various facets will integrate. How will it actually work? As technical professionals, we are keen on what is quantifiable, so it should come as no surprise that the Summit is aptly themed ‘Translating next generation technology into real world deployment’.

That said, there’s no harm in also enjoying an interactive exhibition with cool displays from the likes of Tesla, Volvo and BMW, is there? And it’s not just about cars you know: you can see driverless shuttles and pods in action and get up close and personal with autonomous technologies of all shapes and sizes. Not to mention discussing intelligent transport systems and disruptive innovation within an intellectually robust environment.

There are a multitude of important factors to consider when it comes to the deployment of disruptive technologies and the experts can articulate it best. That’s why we look forward to hearing from keynote speakers representing Telstra, Peloton Technology, Local Motors as well as many more. You can learn more about the topics and themes here

Change is imminent. If you want to understand where you stand in the game, consider this.
