Planning for the Driverless Car

This Forum is for city planners, public transport authorities, road and highway agencies and all others involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of cities and their transportation networks.

Driverless cars will bring drastic change to the world of mobility and transport. Without preparation cities probably end in chaos or develop in undesirable ways. Roads and railways, transport systems, public and private, must get prepared for the driverless future.

But what is required to cope with new patterns of mobility and transport? Different players must work together to find the answers. Well established borders between rail and road as well as public and private transport will shift rapidly. New players will enter the transportation market and there will be a proliferation of new services offered. How can city planning cope with this dynamic development and this great uncertainty?

The International Forum on Mobility and Transport (IFoMaT) addresses exactly these issues. The Forum brings together leading minds of all subjects involved: city planners, public transport authorities, road and highway agencies and others involved in the planning, design, construction and operation of transportation networks. Industry, service providers, politicians and social scientists are invited to join the discussion.

Driverless cars will have a huge impact on the built environment and society at large as the pattern of moving around people and goods will change dramatically. How must our cities be built and what transportation networks will be required in the driverless future? Join the International Forum on Mobility and Transport to find the answers!
