We are pleased to invite you to this joint ICE & IStructE evening talk which will discuss recent UK projects investigating autonomous transport.
There has been much debate about autonomous vehicles over the years. How can they integrate into our cities? What are the legal and insurance issues? How safe are they? Is the technology foolproof? Can people overcome their fears? What are the real benefits? One thing is sure, they are not going away and it is a programme with which many engineers can be involved. In this joint IStructE/ICE meeting Austin Smith and Tim Armitage will explain the current state of programmes both in the UK and around the world and consider the next steps in their development and deployment.
This event is free and open to all (including the general public).
Sandwiches and refreshments are available from 18:00 with the talk commencing at 18:30.
