PAVE Europe Virtual Panel – “Charting the Road Ahead: Public Engagement for a Transformative Autonomous Mobility Future”

Back to Resources

This virtual panel session delves into the pivotal role of public engagement in shaping a safe and sustainable era of autonomous vehicles (AVs). We will explore the intricate dynamics of highly automated vehicles, investigating human factors influencing design and considerations for Human-Machine Interface (HMI).

Our panelists provide valuable insights into the interaction of road users with new technologies, emphasizing the critical role this plays in seamlessly integrating autonomous vehicles into daily life. We aim to comprehend public sentiment towards AVs and their potential impact on urban landscapes, considering the perspectives of various road users.

Our discussion encompasses diverse perspectives from communities regarding the behavior and operation of urban self-driving buses, shuttles, and other vehicles. These insights are instrumental in molding the future of transportation. We also unravel the far-reaching implications of community expectations on the evolution of self-driving vehicles, aligning these insights with the broader vision for the future of transport and mobility.

Moreover, we explore the recent experience of EU large scale demontrations, uncovering how autonomous technologies can enhance and revolutionize traditional modes of public transportation and Operators. Our discussion extends to the impacts on business and governance models, public-private partnerships, the role of cities, and user needs.
