Who Should Attend?
The Symposium will bring together Britain’s local authorities, legislators, highway authorities, and communications companies who need to install a connected-vehicle network throughout the UK. Moreover, the event will be a fantastic in-person networking environment to discuss, debate, and discover new technologies, techniques, legislation, and possibilities, as well as meet new contacts face to face. 

The Symposium will attract specifiers and purchasers from the following sectors:

  • Local authorities 
  • Legislators and Government ministers 
  • Communications companies
  • Road operators/Highway authorities 
  • Highway infrastructure implementation companies 
  • Universities and research institutes
  • Car manufacturers and component suppliers involved in ADAS and connected car systems and development 

In short, anyone responsible for a roadside communications technology implementation programme should attend the Symposium. Indeed, you can expect to see expert papers, presentations, and panel discussions on the following topics:

  • Coordinating activities across the UK to enable the roll-out of interoperable connected services
  • Funding the coordinated provision of connected infrastructure
  • Legal implications and adapting from the status quo
  • How should the functions be distributed between the infrastructure and on-board the vehicles?
  • V2V solution integration with existing highway infrastructure and the adaptations needed to work best together
  • Automated lane keeping systems and other infrastructure requirements
  • CAV highway simulation and modelling with insights into testing facilities, pilots and trials
  • Connectivity for real-time traffic management to replace traffic signals
  • And much more
