PACTS driverless vehicles conference to include speakers from Delphi & Volvo
The conference on “Driverless Vehicles – from Technology to Policy” takes place on 22nd October at Thatcham Research and will not only deal with the complex issues surrounding the fully autonomous vehicles, but also the application of existing technologies such as Autonomous Emergency Braking, Self-Parking and Queue Assist.
