Delivering an On-Demand Public Transportation System
more

Forget the inefficiency of bus routes with only two riders. Instead deliver bespoke on demand services that blurs the lines between public and private transportation.

  • Create a common data platform which combines data from multiple inputs. Enable users to accurately access door to door multi-modal routing options individual to their needs (time and purpose of trip) and environment (weather)  
  • Think outside the box. From autonomous vehicles in tunnels under cities to Hyperloop One, explore the cutting edge solutions which will revolutionise (inter)urban transit. Which have a viable future?
  • Multiple operators, single receipt to the customer. Debate how to create secure mobility payments platform which simplifies the user experience and offers value for money to consumers

Innovation in Transportation: Who's Going to Pay?
more

It's the great conundrum of smart transportation; infrastructure needs to get smart, but authorities have limited budgets.  Tackle this elephant in the room as we establish how to finance the future of mobility.

  • Explore the need for fast paced JVs between authorities and industry. Create win-win public private partnerships which enable innovative transportation solutions beyond the reach of the public purse
  • From utility companies to property developers, identify which new ecosystem players will drive the development of connected mobility infrastructure

Hyper-Segmentation: Re-Imagining Vehicles for Autonomous Mobility on Demand
more

Forget everything that you perceive of a car; shape, size, stylings! The future will be vehicles designed to ideally suit its function. Start planning for this revolution today.

  • Once you remove the need to drive - what could a vehicle be used for? Office, hotel, movies? From powertrain to HMI, discuss the design changes required as vehicle use cases evolve
  • With OEMs already partnering with Pizza companies to create bespoke delivery vehicles, identify the commercial partners where specific vehicle design will create new opportunities and end users

Solving the Last-Mile Mobility Problem
more

Last-mile mobility representations both a headache and huge opportunity for urban congestion. Discuss how to create a tech plat looking to solve this crucial transportation issue.

  • Next Day Delivery - forget about it! With consumers adjusting to on-demand delivery, identify how to harness latest tech, incl. drones and robotaxis to optimize routing and relieve congestion
  • Learn which services incl. free floating bike sharing and public transportation need to be accessible from major transport hubs in order to alleviate the reliance on single occupancy cars and taxis
  •  What mode, where? Summonable, route, private, public, trunk delivery

AV Software and Sensors: Finding the Suite Spot
more

Rapid developments in sensors and processing power are driving the development of autonomous vehicles. Understand the latest developments in creating the ultimate AV tech suite.

  • Consider how centralized processors and high-speed low latency networking can be applied to deal with the gigabytes of data needed to power AV platforms
  • Assess how A.I.-based algorithms can be applied in the processing pipeline to help fill in incomplete data such as perception data
  • Cloud, Edge, Fog. Map out exactly how off board data storage can be utilized to store data not vital to autonomous functioning, freeing up processing power for immediate functions

Connected Roads: Delivering Intelligent Traffic Solutions
more

Harness connectivity and real-time data to deliver an intelligent road network.

  • Assess the latest connected road infrastructure innovations, i.e. eco traffic signaling. Optimize routing and reduce stopping to lower journey times and enable fuel savings
  • Tackle problems with parking. Utilize real time parking data to alleviate urban congestion and prevent drivers from spending  four days every year searching for a parking space
  • With up to 7.5% fuel saving the benefits of platooning are apparent. Step back to look at the total network, could waiting time taken to join and leave the platoon increase energy usage?

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems – Safety Under All Circumstances
more

With headlines firmly fixed L4 & L5 automation, it's crucial to remember there remains significant development for ADAS technologies. Debate how to further develop the system that will protect people whilst drivers are still part of the equation.

  • Euro NCAP approved, but is that good enough? With regulation covering ADAS in only a narrow set of conditions, pinpoint the systems improvements required to become safe in all situations
  • Assess how applying machine learning algorithms alongside existing ADAS sensor systems can enable a second set of eyes for the ultimate driver failsafe
  • Learn how ADAS technologies, such a sensors, can be integrated with passive safety systems e.g. airbags to radically enhance existing safety systems

Auto Mobility as a Service 2.0: Diversifying the Model
more

One size mobility does not fit all; only offering round trips could turn away potential customers. As such MaaS providers are having to move beyond a single business model for auto mobility. 

  • Create a platform to deliver a hybrid of auto mobility services, incl. free floating, point to point and ride hailing. Allow users to pick the journey most appropriate to the needs of that trip
  • Assess the pros and cons of subscriptions and pay-per minute mobility models. Can both models be successful on the same service?

The New Liability Paradigm: Insuring Autonomous Mobility on Demand
  • Andy Davis - Transport Assurance Practice Director, NCC Group
more

AMoD is set to shatter the existing auto insurance paradigm. Understand how a new model for risk is set to shake up the entire supply chain.

  • Determine the need for insurers to access data that shows which vehicles are equipped with ADAS features and how/if they are being used in order to price risk more effectively
  • Decipher the effect on risk assessment as automated driving reduces ownership, moves towards product liability and decreases accidents
  • Look at the need for insurers to be involved in debates about ethics and morality surrounding automated driving so the industry can build a common standard
