The Institution of Mechanical Engineers warmly invites London Society members to join this year’s Thomas Hawksley Lecture, held at the Institution’s London headquarters at One Birdcage Walk.
The topic for 2016’s lecture is “i-Mobility for Sustainable Cities – are we nearly there yet?” and will explore the challenges presented by this future scenario and the possible technologies in intelligent mobility, smart cities and sustainable transport that will provide the solutions.
By 2050 up to 80% of the world’s population will live in cities, transportation will have been decarbonised and the Internet of Things, in conjunction with Artificial Intelligence, will have transformed everyday living.
People will expect highly effective personal mobility solutions that will be fully integrated across multiple modes and into the urban environment. Such mobility solutions must also be fully sustainable within a circular rather than a linear economy.
The lecture is free to attend and places are available on a first-come, first served basis.
