There is a global focus on developing smart and autonomous vehicles, but full autonomy will take many years to implement. In the meantime intelligent infrastructure systems will have to be developed that are efficient, robust, safe and affordable.
The use of satellite based services such as hybrid communications and resilient positioning will be particularly important for ensuring effective transport services in both rural and suburban regions where issues of isolation, poor communications coverage and long commute journeys are acute.
This workshop will explore current challenges facing development, and the opportunities for improvement, in the market which could benefit Road Transport Infrastructure designers, operators and end users. The workshop will include some scene setting presentations with current problems in the market and will then look to spark ideas for development opportunities with the intention of exploring a concept further after the workshop.
