Hosted at Thatcham Research, the event is being held as current vehicles increasingly gain autonomous features, from emergency braking to parking assistance, and will explore current issues as well as those affecting the near future.

Key speakers will tackle the legal, insurance and technical issues of driverless cars.

The conference coincides with the Government’s review of regulations for driverless cars and the Transport Select Committee’s inquiry Motoring of the Future. It will be chaired by Professor Pete Thomas, Loughborough University, it includes experts from the Department for Transport, Leeds University, the Institute of Traffic Accident Investigators and the Association of British Insurers.
