The Turing Lectures: Where next for self-driving vehicles?
Tuesday 27 September 2022 Time: 19:00-20:30
In this Turing Lecture hosted by Professor Sethu Vijayakumar, Professor Sarah Sharples (Chief Scientific Adviser for the Department for Transport) will discuss the interface between policy and science for self-driving vehicles and highlight some of the challenges and opportunities that we face in this area.
Automation has been present within our transport system for years, but we are now entering an age of autonomy where the nature of transport is rapidly evolving. As we continue on our path towards self-driving vehicles, what is the role for science and how do we take research into the world of policy and legislation at pace? How can we make sure that self-driving vehicles are good for individuals, for society, and for the economy?
This event will be held at the The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London, with the option to attend in person or online.
