Driverless cars: The future of transport?

Google's driverless car is still attracting headlines and all the fuss has tightened the focus on the increasing amount of automation being applied in vehicles.

But what is driving the trend to the driverless car and what issues will be encountered along the way?

Will this increase in complexity force automotive manufacturers to develop a 'system of systems' approach to design, test and certification?

Find out on the first day of the Electronics Design Show (22nd October) from Dr Anthony Baxendale, MIRA's manager of Future Transport & Research.

During his keynote at 14.15pm, Dr Baxendale will offer answers to the questions above and talk in-depth about the role driverless cars have to play in the future of transport.
