London’s road infrastructure is essentially finite and the priorities for its use continue to change. Autonomous vehicles are a potential game changer in this sphere and the GATEway project in Greenwich is one of several gathering information on how they might interact with pedestrians and other road users.
The London Society has been involved with the Greater London Region (GLR) of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) on two previous occasions through presentations under the theme of Sustainable Urban Mobility, and the South-Western Area of IMechE GLR is pleased to offer a warm invitation to London Society members to attend the latest in the series at Kingston University on 21 March at 18.30 for 19.00 to 20.00.
Prof Nick Reed, Academy Director at TRL and GATEway Technical Lead will describe the objectives of the project and what has been learned so far. The event is co-sponsored by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and is free to members of all three organisations. Please book as a guest through the IMechE website
