How can technology deliver a step change in road safety?

UK collision statistics indicate that the last ten years has seen little progress in the prevention of road fatalities.

In this talk, the many and various ways in which technology might help us to restore the previous trend for year-on-year reductions in road casualties will be discussed, including information, enforcement, compliance, driver monitoring, data analytics and the advent of connected and automated vehicles.
