WITS International Women in Engineering Day Debate Webinar

June 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

CAV: evolution or revolution?


On the 20th June 2018, as part of International Women in Engineering Day 2018, the ITS (UK) Women in ITS Interest Group and KTN (Knowledge Transfer Network) hosted a webinar debate discussing the development of driverless cars.  


A wide range of international female speakers were invited to present on engineering aspects of CAV that they felt were particularly exciting or ground breaking, focusing on both digital and mechanical elements, new AI or sensing capabilities, human computer design, totally new technologies and advanced ADAS systems.
