Australia will import a trillion dollars’ worth of oil and cars over the next decade. A shared driverless transport system is a rapidly emerging solution to private car dependency. This solution could reduce this import stress by 90% (*Dr Gary Ellem)
We wish to bring together the brightest minds to tackle the challenge of building the social, technical, business, regulatory, legal, and design pathways to a vibrant shared autonomous vehicle transport sector. If you have been thinking and working in any of the above areas we would like to hear from you.
Some suggestions on topic areas:

This stream will explore the convergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), big data analytics, and the
emerging materials and technologies that are enabling rapid innovation in the built environment.
We invite papers that engage with these many social-technological transitions and their social and urbanliveability impacts, which together are defining the context of the future smart city. Papers on the following topics are encouraged:
