Herbert Smith Freehills: Connected and autonomous vehicles conference

Herbert Smith Freehills Connected and Autonomous Vehicles Conference

The advent of connected and autonomous driving technology is being hailed by many as a revolution in the automotive sector. But this is not the only sector that may be radically altered. The possible applications of this technology are far reaching and straddle a variety of different sectors including aerial, marine, public roads, private and public transportation, space, military, agriculture, mining and many others.

If change on such a broad scale is just around the corner, the question must be asked: what are the potential implications?
