Reference event in the sector
# VEHICLES7YFN is conceived as a Strategic Committee of Experts on the autonomous, connected vehicle and sustainable mobility in Europe. The objective of Think Tank it resides in fostering disruptive thinking about the environment, sustainability and digital transformation, in order to contribute to reflection and generate future proposals for mobility in urban environments. Also to encourage debate, share different experiences, points of view and address the challenges facing society.
The different reflections are organized into six major thematic blocks: urban planning; communication, software, artificial intelligence and big data; regulation; business model; and connected homes and buildings. In urban planning, the experts delve into the challenges of logistics and freight transport, as well as the mobility of citizens, drone travel, and the characteristics of public services and emergencies. On communication and technology, the forum gives the keys to the European regulation that is underway for 5G connectivity, the IoT (Internet of Things) and the advancement of V2V (Vehicle to Vehicle).
