Conference Room E

Chair: Mr. Luděk SOSNA, Head of Strategy Department, Ministry of Transport, First Delegate of the Czech Republic to PIARC, Czech Republic

Vehicles that are increasingly connected, automated, and shared have the potential to change personal, freight, and public transportation profoundly. While the transition to widespread adoption of connected and automated vehicles and shared mobility is underway in the United States and in the European Union, uncertainty exists around the pace, scope, and impacts of the potential end states of the transition. The potential benefits to society are immense. On the other hand, technologies will solve some problems but could also create new ones. In this session, we will consider further moving the finding into research.
