THIS ONE DAY CONFERENCE WILL PURSUE A CRITICAL LOOK AT INTELLIGENT MOBILITY AND ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE IMPACT OF FUTURE TRANSPORT TECHNOLOGIES AND POLICIES ON HUMAN SOCIETY AND EVERYDAY LIFE
THE MIDLANDS INTELLIGENT MOBILITY CONFERENCE 2018
Intelligent Mobility is about bringing together emerging technology and transport services to offer the best travelling experience for commuters. The concept of Mobility as a Service has taken strength in recent times encouraged by developments in autonomous vehicles and the foresight of a future where driverless cars can be shared amongst many people eliminating the need for extensive parking places in cities. Sharing driverless cars combined with efficient public transport systems and optimised traffic control have the potential to reduce flow in roads and motorways as well as the number of accidents due to human error. However, this idealised futuristic vision requires first to achieve the necessary technological developments, second to guarantee efficient performance while maintaining safety on the roads and lastly, to gain public acceptance. In the last point there are many factors to consider; how will intelligent mobility affect the way we live? Our jobs, economy, safety, productivity and the environment?
Contributors are invited to participate with a presentation, exhibition, posters and workshop discussions.
Presentations are invited on the topics that fall within the scope of the conference. If you wish to contribute with a presentation please send a brief abstract (one paragraph) to email@example.com to be reviewed by the organising committee. The deadline for abstract submissions is Monday 6th November 2017.
There will be a series of workshops for open discussion on the topics of the conference. We would like to get views and opinions from as many different perspectives as possible. The objective of the workshops is to understand, analyse and predict the overall challenges for IM. We hope that this information will be valuable to each individual participant.
Posters on current related research will provide opportunities for networking and discussion during the conference. We are looking for posters that clearly describe an intelligent mobility challenge, its antecedents, approaches, plans and milestones, giving examples of IM issues in connection with society. The deadline poster submission is Monday 4th December 2017. There is a template available for structuring posters, to request it send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also contact us If you would like submit a poster using your own template.
This year’s conference will showcase the best the Midlands has to offer in the area of Intelligent Mobility. Over 20, individually selected SMEs, ‘start-ups’ and Local Authorities will present their projects, products and services, including innovative journey planning tools, through to sustainable transport options and emerging government initiatives – all to support the smarter, greener and more efficient movement of people and goods. We have limited exhibition spaces left so if you would like to be considered for a free space please contact email@example.com
