Connected Cars & Autonomous Vehicles is Europe's leading automotive event, this year part of TechXLR8, a showcase of eight industry-leading technology events. 

Here are today's highlights from TechXLR8 and London Tech Week, where a wide range of organisations including Transport for London, GSK, MasterCard and Seadrill Offshore all took the stage to speak.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies

Imagine how easy it would be if you have an autonomous car pick you up from your house in Cambridge, take you to a hyperloop to get to London, then you have another autonomous vehicle arrive to take you to your office, I think the whole experience is a click away. It’s not just the experience, it’s about the productivity of the people. We are wasting so much time, and brain power during our commutes.
