The role of autonomous vehicles is driving the debate on public transport.
As the European Commission supports the development and testing of autonomous vehicles, the Europe Department at UITP hosted a half-day conference (Brussels, 25 January 2018) to ask: ‘What is the impact on our European cities?’
The objective of the event was to tackle the most important questions surrounding the impact autonomous road vehicles will have on cities and public transport.
Beyond the technological aspects, UITP wished to highlight what the deployment of autonomous vehicles will mean for cities and under which conditions this innovation can really become a success.
Many noteable figures gathered to discuss AVs and their future, delivering speeches and taking part in round table discussions.
