09:30 - 10:45 Session 1: Policy and regulatory issues to support deployment of automated mobility services
It was only a few years ago that the battle for space on city streets was between buses and private vehicles. Rapidly evolving technologies, and a stream of novel transport devices/products has created an extremely complex landscape for regulators to match new developments with public policy. This session will explore how authorities who are in charge of the technical regulation and certification of vehicles are working to ensure that automated and connected vehicle​s  provide better mobility for all, including the elderly and disabled, and the potential these solutions have to improve the liveability of all places, large and small.

Session 2: Cybersecurity in the age of automated automotive systems
Fast, reliable, and, above all, secure communications are essential for highly automated driving. Cybersecurity should be designed into the complete life cycle of both the components and the entire vehicle. In-vehicle software will need to be updated to immediately correct problems as they arise. Data used for highly automated driving need to accurately match conditions as they are experienced by drivers. Over-the-air updating must be performed without threat of security breaches. This session will present and discuss how full risk assessment should be performed, how end-to-end testing should be addressed, and how security breaches can be detected to mitigate the damage caused by cybersecurity attacks.

14:00 - 15:30 Session 3: AI for autonomous and assisted driving – how to ensure safety and public trust​
Driver assistance systems, such as lane keeping, adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and blind spot warning, have gradually moved from optional to standard features on most high-end vehicles. They are now making their way to all vehicle models. As automated systems assume more and more of the driver burden and take over increasing amounts of responsibility for the driving task, they require both more data and more processing power to augment the decisions that human drivers have made on their own. Sensors will take the place of human senses and artificial intelligence, it is thought, will substitute for human intelligence. This session will gather global experts on the subject to discuss their views on the progress and the prospects for vehicles that drive themselves. Where is this transition today and what progress will need to be made in the coming years in order to deliver on the expectations for driverless vehicles?

16:15 - 17:45 Session 4: Connected and automated vehicles at the cross-roads to success
Today, all vehicle manufacturers offer cellular connectivity in their vehicles, either as standard equipment or as an option. Safety applications for vehicles, such as emergency call, are appearing as is the ability to connect to Internet information and entertainment. Communication between vehicles, to and from roadside infrastructure is appearing. What will be future evolution of transport as 5G is rolled out?
