CONTEXT

We are currently seeing a major acceleration in autonomous transport systems thanks to the amazing progress made in the development of sensors and artificial intelligence. Fleets of hundreds of robotaxis are already being operated on the roads of several American and Chinese cities, autonomous buses are being tested in various towns, and driverless trucks are being trialled on motorways.  

Given this situation, it is important for Belgian transport professionals to be prepared for this mobility revolution and to make the right choices to take full advantage of the benefits that these technologies can bring, while anticipating any potential adverse effects.

 

Join us for the first Mobility Masterclass on autonomous mobility in Belgium and meet experts to form your own view and help your organisation prepare for these changes. 

You'll benefit from unique professional contacts, particularly with the twenty or so participants in the Belgian delegation that travelled to San Francisco in August 2023.  

The training will be given in English but questions and discussions can take place in French and Dutch. 

Autonomous Mobility: where are we now

Why would people in the USA use robotaxis?

How close are we to self-driving trucks?
