Introduction

TaaS Technology Conference will provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the transportation-as-a-service industry.

The inaugural TaaS Technology conference will have industry-leading insiders delivering more than 30 presentations spanning ten key topics:

  • Sensors: How the evolution of sensor technology must advance to enable CAV/TaaS
  • Connectivity: creating harmony between services and mapping for CAVs / TaaS
  • Data: How to process and manage additional terabytes of data in a new mobility ecosystem?
  • Software: The last obstacle to fully autonomous vehicles?
  • Safety: Ensuring security, safety and reliability for CAVs
  • Legislation: How can we ensure public safety while maintaining individual responsibility?
  • HMI: How will usability and the human machine interface (HMI) impact CAV design?
  • Logistics: How will CAVs and TaaS impact the logistics industry?
  • Manufacturing: How might auto makers/suppliers fare in a CAV / TaaS future?
  • Planning: How will CAVs / TaaS affect comprehensive planning for cities/towns?
  • Evolution: How might TaaS / CAVs meet mobility and transport options in 3-10 years?

Transportation-as-a-Service (TaaS) Technology Conference is a new two-day global conference and exhibition dedicated to covering the key topics of the Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) and TaaS industry and it will take place on July 9th and 10th 2018, The Slate, Coventry, UK.

The TaaS Technology Conference will bring together international experts for two days of in-depth discussions and exhibits focused on the opportunities and challenges of a mobility future that leverages CAV and TaaS technologies.

Attendees to the conference will hear industry-leading insiders delivering more than 30 presentations spanning seven sectors. The conference will equip the delegates with an up-to-date overview of the status of the CAV and TaaS industry, and provide them with many opportunities to meet other key players within this community.

This international conference is being organised with our partners Coventry City Council, Coventry University, and WMG at the University of Warwick. All 3 are working on a number of national and international projects focussing on CAVs and future mobility.

The era of the autonomous vehicle is here. According to industry estimates, by 2020, the autonomous vehicle market will be worth US$87 billion. Furthermore, by 2040, it is predicted that four out of every 10 vehicles on the road will be autonomous.

“We are on the cusp of one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history. By 2030, within 10 years of regulatory approval of autonomous vehicles (AVs), 95% of U.S. passenger miles travelled will be served by on-demand autonomous electric vehicles owned by fleets, not individuals, in a new business model we call “transportation-as-a-service” (TaaS). The TaaS disruption will have enormous implications across the transportation and oil industries, decimating entire portions of their value chains, causing oil demand and prices to plummet, and destroying trillions of dollars in investor value - but also creating trillions of dollars in new business opportunities, consumer surplus and GDP growth.” [Taken from RethinkX report on the disruption of transportation].

TaaS Technology Conference is the must attend conference for those in the CAV & TaaS industry
