Autonomous Cars and Transport Innovation Seminar

Last week Professor Nick Reed from the UK Transport Research Laboratory gave a fascinating presentation on Autonomous Cars and Transport Innovation at Les Cotils

Nick gave us an insight into the trails they are running on autonomous vehicles including shuttle transport on the Meridian, valet parking and urban deliveries. He also discussed the benefits to Guernsey including less traffic and congestion, less pollution, safer roads, access for disabled travelers, adaptable routes and travel times and more. Nick summarised the presentation up saying that there are exciting opportunities for Guernsey to play a role in future transport.

Chamber President Tony Rowbotham commented on the seminar, “A fascinating presentation and the advantages for Guernsey are significant. Not just for our own transport system, but as an island how we can be market leaders in support to this rapidly growing sector with insurance, financing and technology all being areas where the island can add value.”

We would like to thank our speaker Nick.
