Delegates will discuss how the emergence of automated, semi-automated and interconnected cars fits into current regulatory frameworks and how regulation will need to evolve in relation to driver standards, criminal liabilities, and road safety, as well as the need to clarify how ‘live vehicle data’ can be fully utilised by traffic managers, insurers, emergency services, and others to create a ‘smart’ transport network.

Planned sessions will be allocated to discuss the next steps to adapting the UK road network to support the widespread use of electric vehicles and what future infrastructure, such as charging lanes, currently being tested by Highways England, might be required
