    As the UK strives to lead the world in the development and widespread deployment of connected and autonomous vehicles, it is essential that we capitalise on innovation, ensure the regulatory environment is reformed and invest in the necessary infrastructure.. As we seek to reach zero emissions within the next two decades, the successful roll-out of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) will play a crucial role. Hear from Innovate UK, who will outline a vision for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle testing, infrastructure and services.

    COVID 19 has witnessed the halt of trial phases and public testing, however there is great opportunity to adapt to the new environment and propel the industry forward. You will explore how progressing innovation across connected and autonomous vehicles could help the economic recovery post COVID-19.

    Westminster Insights half-day forum will explore practical strategies to deliver the safe deployment of CAVS, including innovative infrastructure and the legal and regulatory framework to support autonomous vehicles.

    Learn from Cambridgeshire County Council on integrating CAVs services into our towns and cities and make autonomous vehicles a reality. Transport Scotland will be delivering a Keynote Case Study exploring the ‘CAV Roadmap for Scotland’ ,/b> and the outcome of their trials to reflecting on the development of future intelligent mobility solutions. Professor Carsten Maple will give you insight into creating a secure environment for the usage of CAVs by countering cybercrime.

    Join key decision makers, innovators, producers, and senior stakeholders from across the transport sector to explore the roll-out of CAVs, the impact of COVID-19 and clean growth.
