Workshop : The Future Use of Autonomous Vehicles: Technology, Public Policy, and Business
The autonomous vehicle (AV) is set to deeply transform the landscape of the automotive industry and the use of cars in our society. However, the transition to autonomous driving presents enormous uncertainties. This workshop aims to contribute to the debate on the technical, socio-economic transformation linked to the arrival of the AV, focusing on some of the fundamental elements of this transformation: technology, public policy, and business. In particular, the following topics will be discussed: historical trajectories of AV technology, pending technological challenges, public policy on AV deployment, and demonstration experiments of autonomous mobility. In addition, leadership change in the global AV industry and future scenarios for AV business platforms are also to be addressed in the workshop. Comparative perspectives among countries are emphasized in this workshop to improve our understanding of the key aspects of the future use of AVs and AV-based new mobility services.
