Aurora Summit 2018: Safe and Secure Automated Transport in All Conditions

In all modes of transport, automation is one of the key trends and at the same time one of the key challenges. Aurora Summit 2018 will take place to discuss this highly important theme of future traffic: intelligent transport that works safely and securely in all conditions, even outside the sunny California and when it is raining cats, dogs, snow or hail.

The Summit brings together the public and private sectors to discuss the state-of-the-art as well as the necessary actions needed for automated transport to meet this challenge.
