The Royal Institution: The future of mobility
Tuesday 10th September @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
How will the electrification of transport change how we move around in the world of the future? How will people engage with future transportation systems and how will that effect how people live their lives? Will autonomous vehicles be a common means of transportation; on road, at sea and in the air? How does the technology work? What are the financial, legal and ethical implications of self-driving vehicles?
These questions and many more will be answered by our panel of experts in this event supported by the Faraday Institution. This event is the final of a three-part series entitled ‘The Batteries are Coming!’
