About the Event
Transportation as we know it is going to be transformed over the next decade. While electrification is advancing and gradually replacing internal combustion engines, automation and driverless vehicles are considered a significant transformation of transportation. While much of the focus of the public has been on the high profile tests of passenger vehicles and their high profile accidents, a quiet transformation to automation has been happening in the automation of medium and heavy duty freight as well as industrial fleets. This symposium will discuss the challenges, opportunities and the pace of change in automation of passenger and freight as well as industrial fleet vehicles.
