Third annual meeting of Robomobile Life focuses on role of local authorities
The 3rd annual meeting of the Robomobile Life initiative will take place on 19-20 May to explore the role that local authorities (cities, regions) can play in steering the emergence and evolution of automated mobility. Polis members, Lille, La Rochelle, Rouen and Gustave Eiffel university, will be contributing to this workshop along with the Polis secretariat and the H2020 project LEVITATE.
Initiated by the French Ministry for Ecological Transition in 2017, the "robomobile life" series of foresight workshops aims to foster thinking, exploration, questioning, reflection and debate on all subjects and matters related to robomobility. The workshops seek to create a better understanding of the key issues and long-term choices that decision-makers from both the public and private sectors may have to deal with in the coming years and decades, here in France and abroad.
The decade 2021-2030 could see the deployment of the first transport services provided by automated vehicles. This implementation will be gradual, targeted and regulated and should be driven by genuine use cases that meet mobility needs that are poorly or insufficiently covered by the existing offer. These first stages of putting transport automation into service in real conditions will be decisive.
- To what extent can a city choose the robomobile model that suits it best?
- What influence will local/regional government stakeholders have on the different socio-technical models associated with automation?
- What will be the the rules of the game and who will set them?
This third annual meeting aims to provide reflection on these questions. This event has been designed to give participants the possibility to compose their own tailor-made programme. The sessions are independent of each other. An English-speaking track is open to all international attendants and all plenaries will be translated from French to English.
