The IHE Scotland Branch would like to invite you to a technical evening on ‘Autonomous Vehicles’ on 11th February 2020.

The event will take place at:

AK Bell Library
York Street
Perth
PH2 8EP. 

Starting time: 6pm.

The Speakers for the evening are as follows:

Philip McAleese – Director – See Sense – innovative bicycle light which helps both cyclists and detects road condition and feeds it back. 

See Sense exists to make cycling better, with their award-winning bike lights giving cyclists more visibility on their ride, and cities more information on their roads. The lights (which are used by more than 30,000 cyclists across 70 countries) shine brightly both in daylight and night time and react to moments when a cyclist may be at risk by automatically flashing brighter and faster. They don’t just make a cyclist safer though. They give them a voice.

The technology within them can detect any road issues or poor route conditions that a cyclist faces. Through their mobile app, the cyclist is then able to share these insights anonymously with Planners to help them improve public safety, reduce congestion and lower pollution in cities.

Andrew Davidson –  National Operations Manager – Transport Scotland – Project CAV and CAVForth

Transport Scotland have just published their Connected and Autonomous Vehicles:  Roadmap for Scotland, which sets out their vision for how Scotland can be at the forefront of developments in the connected and autonomous vehicle history. This includes CAVForth – which will provide a globally significant demonstration of autonomous bus capability along a 14-mile route across the Forth Road Bridge between Fife and Edinburgh.
