Workshop on Autonomous vehicles and big data in a new era of the transportation system

14 September 2018 @ 9.00am - 5.30pm

Autonomous vehicles are rapidly becoming a reality in the modern world. Through rising companies and technology advancement a shift in the automotive industry is rapidly observed. The technology for self-driving vehicles is already there.  It is not going to be long before autonomous vehicles hit our roads. Implications of autonomous vehicles and self-driving scenarios on the society, safety, traffic management cannot be ignored.  Furthermore, assessing implications of such technologies needs major thinking and consideration.

There have been many studies and research carried out to analyse the legal, practical and technological requirements to implement and adopt fully autonomous vehicles into the modern traffic model. There are still many gaps and related research questions which need further consideration.

This workshop is organized jointly by Transport Research Institute at Edinburgh Napier University and Dr. Akito Higatani, Hanshin Expressway Company who is currently a visiting Post Doc working with Professor Wafaa Saleh.  The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to elaborate on the potential implications and future scenarios of autonomous vehicles.

There are few available places available at the workshop which will be assigned on a first come first served basis.

Please contact tri.general@napier.ac.uk for further information.
