    With the country recovering from the coronavirus pandemic, the connected autonomous vehicle industry represents a key area of investment to help Britain build back greener and cement ourselves as a world leader in CAV technology.

    The progress and innovation that has been made in the last few years alone is astounding, however there remain some major challenges the industry must face to unlock the full potential of electric and automated travel. This means directly addressing the uncertainties around safety, regulation, insurance, infrastructure and consumer confidence.

    Join Westminster Insight’s Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Digital Conference to hear key insights from industry leaders, including an update on the current changes to the legal and regulatory framework of CAVs, national and international best-practice examples of the latest innovations in driverless technology implementation, and the way in which the pandemic has altered the landscape of demand for CAVs.
