As they move from test tracks to city streets, autonomous vehicles promise to revolutionize mobility and transform communities in ways large and small. Will citizens help drive this transformation?
OUR DRIVERLESS FUTURES is bringing together the voices of thousands of citizens in Europe, North America and Asia. Informed, deliberative, and neutral, these day long forums (9am -5pm) will generate critical information for decision makers to prepare for the future of driverless mobility.
Join in and share your views about driverless mobility. You will meet fellow citizens, share your mobility concerns, learn about automated technology and possible development, and engage in thoughtful dialogue. No prior knowledge is required. There are no incorrect answers—every viewpoint is welcome and wanted!
