To help expand awareness to wider audiences for key aspects involved in the MOVE_UK project , The Floow, today hosted a webinar highlighting how the project is working to understand risk. The talk presented to a wide audience three key factors of how risk is evolving, these are:
The Future of Vehicles
(presented by Dr Sam Chapman, The Floow)
This detailed what new vehicle technology is coming and how it will affect not only safety, but also how it may also influence behaviour and infrastructure in less obvious ways.
The Future of Infrastructure
(presented by Kim Smith, Royal Borough of Greenwich (DGCities) )
Kim addressed the upcoming changes in infrastructure discussing the impact of how working to address improvements in areas like accident, congestion, emissions and introducing sustainable transport will all impact changes in the road environment and driving. The MOVE_UK pilot region was used in examples to detail wider changes and how risk is evolving.
The Future of Behaviour
(presented by Dr Lisa Dorn, The Floow)
Lisa explained how changes in driver behaviour is shifting and how these evolving behaviours are changing the how, why and where people drive, alongside the associated risks that again these changes can present.
