Driverless Cars - The Future of Road Transport and the implications for insurance

Holiday Inn Bristol City Centre
Tuesday, 17 September 2019
8:30 am – 10:00 am
    • David Williams, AXA Insurance

The session will cover the Government backed consortia, look at the ongoing government consultation and how it may impact the regulatory timetable, and the wider implications of European restrictions / opportunities. Data will be a key area going forward and we will look at the issues in that regard, together with the wider work carried out by Thatcham and the ABI ADIG (Autonomous Driving Group). It will also look at the potential impact on insurance risks and products in a future of connected and autonomous vehicles, and speculate as to how quickly we will see these vehicles on UK roads. There will be a brief overview of the implications for the commercial vehicle space (it’s not just cars!) and particularly the UK haulage industry.
