Executive Panel: Connected, Autonomous & Shared Mobility: is our Road Network Ready?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

It is no longer the question “if” but rather “when” fully connected and autonomous vehicles will hit the road in full force, with in its wake a profound transformation of personal mobility and user experience. One has to wonder however if the road network itself is ready to accommodate such a paradigm shift, seeing the decades-long shelf life of the underlying assets. This session will discuss such questions related to a full-scale deployment of new mobility services, in an effort to reach consensus on some key aspects of system design.
