The countdown is on until the exciting International Driverless Vehicle Summit in Adelaide on 16-17 November 2017, where delegates will hear from an array of prominent national and international technology thought leaders, human factors experts, insurance and legal practitioners and regulators from across the driverless vehicle ecosystem.

With a theme of 'Translating technology to real world deployment' this not-to-be-missed event also includes demonstrations, security, heavy and light vehicles, and will share the latest innovation developments, pioneering trials and deployment from across Australia and around the globe.

Summit keynote speaker, and Aurrigo Chief Operating Officer, Dr Richard Fairchild, will offer critical insights from a series of demonstrations on selected public roads and footpaths in Milton Keynes and Coventry, while presenter Kane Blackman from the Insurance Commission of Western Australia, will explore the changing liability and personal injury insurance landscape.

Another presentation highlight will be Josh Switkes, CEO from Peloton Technology in the USA, who will outline how truck platooning technology might apply within an Australian setting.

A hypothetical session as part of the program will offer the broader community a unique interactive opportunity to tap into the knowledge of a panel of the nation’s foremost experts on driverless vehicles. ADVI partners Aurrigo, EasyMile and Navya will join forces to showcase driverless shuttle technology, while several key vehicle manufacturers will profile their various products right in the heart of the city.

The Summit offers an opportunity to experience tomorrow’s motoring future today. More information, and the exciting 2-day program, is available at http://www.idvs2017.com.au/
