What is the Future Vehicles Australia 2016 conference?

With major manufacturers unveiling their visions for the autonomous vehicle, and authorities moving toward licensing them and developing infrastructure and policy to support them, the latest advanced driver assistance systems suggest we are already on the cusp of making the once futuristic concept of autonomous driving a reality.

This would constitute the most fundamental change in transportation since the advent of the steam engine.

Significant investments are being made by the automotive industry and governments to accelerate the pace of innovation, while all stakeholders including insurance companies, taxis and freight companies carefully watch to help them build their future strategies.

The Future Vehicles 2016 conference has been specifically designed to assess the rate at which autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicles may be adopted, the policy settings needed and the broader implications of this fundamental shift.
