Accelerating CAV uptake on our Roads

The aim of this event is to bring the transport tech industry and public sector decision-makers together to explore two key challenges in driving the uptake of connected and autonomous vehicles on the UK’s roads:

  • Traffic Management: This session will examine how CAVs will change the road environment both physically and digitally, unpack what (physical and digital) infrastructure is needed to get CAVs on the road, what technology solutions exist, and the role of rigorous and robust testing and trials in the UK.
  • Building public trust: Having CAV capability is one thing. Getting people to use them is another. This session will look at the role of public trust driving the uptake of CAVs on the UK’s roads, and how to build and maintain trust in the technology and capability of CAVs as a safer and more efficient transport option than human-driven vehicles, as well as use cases for building trust in CAVs.


Our speakers and panellists come from organisations across public and private sectors that work on CAV tech and implementation. There will be lots of opportunities for audience engagement, and the day will wind down with a coffee and networking session in the early afternoon. The agenda for the day is:
