Event description
Autonomous vehicles, what can we really expect in the future?

About this event

In this Spotlight Event Dr Mahmood Hikmet, Head of Research and Development at Ohmio, will set aside the marketing hype and buzz and instead present a practical and pragmatic look at what we can expect from the advent of connected vehicles, the current state of the industry, and where 5G actually fits in to the equation from an engineering perspective.

Dr Hikmet will discuss how autonomous vehicles will not require connectivity to operate safely but how the addition of connectivity will enable an exciting and huge number of applications that will make driving on the road safer and more efficient, plus how 5G is likely to be the technology used for vehicle connectivity in urban areas.

Space is limited, so book your seat today. Get involved – be inspired.
