Autonomous Vehicles Summit 2018

The integration of Autonomous Vehicles in Shaping Australia’s Connected and Accessible Transport Future

The Autonomous Vehicles Summit 2018 is coming to Rydges Sydney Central, Sydney on 31 July- 1 August this year!
Dr Brett Dale, CEO for the Motor Trades Association and developer of Australia’s first automotive innovation hub, MTAiQ, is leading the keynotes on the first day of the Summit. Brett will discuss An Industry Perspective on the Readiness and Capacity for Autonomous Vehicles in Australia. 
Dr Dale said, “Australian governments are investing millions of dollars in funding autonomous vehicle trials across almost all states. The ultimate aim is to create a greener, safer and more efficient transportation system with safer roads and fewer accidents, less congestion and smoother traffic, increased mobility for the elderly and disabled and improved availability of on-demand car-sharing and to optimise parking space. My keynote will explore the ability for industry to introduce and embrace autonomous vehicles by looking at the:
• Red zone- challenges to adoption and how to stimulate businesses to overcome these;
• Yellow Zone- the crossroad in workforce and consumer readiness; and
• Green Zone- the unlimited opportunities that arise from automation.”
With around 20 autonomous vehicle trials happening across 7 Australian states and million of dollars being invested into these trials, the Autonomous Vehicles Summit 2018 will bring together transport stakeholders to explore the main challenges faced during the development, implementation and integration of autonomous vehicles into our transport system.
With the autonomous vehicle market expected to be worth $87 billion by 2020, the conference will also cover:
  • The timelines, benefits and barriers to adoption for self-driving vehicles
  • Collaboratively working with stakeholders to develop clear standards, legislation and frameworks for the successful delivery of Autonomous Vehicle projects
  • Overcoming consumer concerns on safety, security and system reliability
  • Exploring the integration of autonomous and driver controlled vehicles across our transport system
  • Understanding the infrastructure and technology required to support autonomous vehicles across Australia’s transport system
