Panel debate: Will vehicle automation really lead to zero accidents?
This lively panel will debate the introduction of fully autonomous vehicles on public roads and how soon we will see an impact on safety.
New levels of automation promise greater safety, however the new technology still has to interact with humans. Is there a danger that accident and fatality rates actually increase initially? Can newly automated vehicles coexist with older vehicles in an operator’s fleet?
Panel members will include a vehicle manufacturer, a logistics operator, an insurance provider and an IRU representative. The audience will have the opportunity to vote on key questions and interact with the panel.
