Seminar will discuss a new generation of sentient vehicles
Posted on 10-Aug-2005 10:05 | Tags Filed under: News



Recent developments in information and communications technology will have a profound effect on the shape of our transport systems in the coming decades. A lack of shared vision will severely limit the potential for innovation, so its vital that all the stakeholders in this rapidly developing sector work together on roadmapping the future of the connected car.

In this spirit of collaboration, the Connected Car seminar will bring together researchers, manufacturers, policy makers, economists and industry experts to explore the latest developments and predict future applications in the interface between communications and automotive technology.

The objective is to review developments in the broad area and to discuss their implications. The format of the seminar is designed to be interactive, allowing delegates from different fields to share their extensive knowledge and expertise and will include presentations from researchers in technology, law, sociology and economics as well as from industry suppliers and policy makers.

Expert speakers from car manufacturers, regulatory bodies, telecommunicatons networks, insurance firms and the Department of Transport will examine pressing issues including standardising architecture and standards, congestion charging, road pricing, vehicle positioning, opportunistic networking, traffic management systems, environmental impact and the contentious prospect of pay as you drive insurance systems.

The event will happen 15 - 16 September 2005 in Cambridge. It is being promoted by The Cambridge-MIT Institute, University of Cambridge. The price of attending the Connected Car seminar, including dinner at Trinity Hall College, is 250 + VAT.
