Posters on current related research will provide opportunities for networking and discussion.  Participants are invited to present posters that clearly describe an intelligent mobility challenge and the approaches to solve them.

The conference will provide invaluable opportunities to network with leading industry figures, decision makers, academics, policy makers and technologists.

This year’s conference will showcase the best the Midlands has to offer in the area of Intelligent Mobility. Fifteen individually selected SMEs, ‘start-ups’ and Local Authorities will present their projects, products and services, including everything from low emissions / autonomous vehicles and innovative journey planning tools, through to sustainable transport options and emerging government initiatives.

Drinks Reception:
We will celebrate the end of the conference with a drinks reception from 5 to 7 pm. We are arranging musical entertainment and a prize giving for the best poster in the conference.

Full details of the programme, workshops and exhibition are available on the conference website.

The conference is organised by Loughborough, Coventry, De Montfort and Nottingham Trent Universities in partnership with the Transport Systems Catapult.
