Vehicle Automation: Challenges and Opportunities for Cities

Organised by the projects Viajeo PLUS and VRA

Much research and development work has been carried out to develop and demonstrate the concept of autonomous vehicles. In the EU, as part of the frameworks of EC co-funded cooperative project this topic has been promoted since the 1980 with large-scale projects. These projects have explore the concept of fully automated vehicles, ranging from private vehicles, to buses, Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGV) to specific vehicles (i.e. on private sites such as university campuses, car parks, or hospitals). But, why have these technologies not taken off in 'the real world' yet?Many demonstrations of these technologies have been carried out proving their effectiveness. More recently Google developed a self-driving car and aims to market it as a consumer good for the general public. In 2015, the UK government launched a large scale demonstration of driverless cars in a number of British cities. Despite these efforts, the exploitation of these technologies and their integration into urban transport schemes remains a challenge.This webinar aims to reflect upon the challenges cities may face when deploying automated vehicles, and the mechanism by which they could face these challenges.
