Ottawa Autonomous Vehicle Summit

April 4 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm



Welcome to the 3rd Annual Ottawa Autonomous Vehicle Summit

Presented by the Kanata North Business Association and Invest Ottawa, in partnership with the Canadian Automated Vehicles Centre of Excellence (CAVCOE).

The 2018 AV Summit will showcase the advances in automated driving technology and the far reaching impacts this will have to society.  We will explore the many challenges it will present to our cities, transport and service providers.

Discussions will include Autonomous Vehicles Readiness Index, Assessing countries openness and preparedness for autonomous vehicles, Charting AV/CV Technology Opportunities and Challenges , Creating Regulatory Policy for a New World and Smart Transportation for Smart Cities: Urban Planning and Emerging Mobility Trends.

The one-day conference will include a series of panels, industry experts and keynote speakers with participants from industry, academia and government.

What can we expect?

A disruption to travel as we know it.

In the next 5 to 10 years Autonomous Vehicles will be a fact of life. While this will be a transition, it is a transition that will occur quicker than expected and change the face of our transportation ecosystem forever.

Virtually all private and public sectors will be impacted as most are linked to the transportation ecosystem in one way or another. These include finance, insurance, technology, oil and gas, parking, vehicle sales/leasing, health-care, police, electricity, and so on.

Join us for an insightful discussion on the future of intelligent transport on April 4th at the Brookstreet Hotel 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM. Panel topics will include: Autonomous Vehicle/Connected Vehicle Technology, Urban Planning and Mobility, Deployment Opportunities and Challenges, Ottawa Public and Private Test Bed Use Case Discussion.
