Mobility in general touches everyone's life and the majority of people are drivers. Intelligent vehicles are therefore close to society.
We would like to learn more about existing perspectives on the impact of intelligent vehicles on people and society. We invited people from a variety of different organisations and governmental agencies for an interactive discussion. Participants came from different backgrounds, such as catering firms, insurance companies, the police, hackers, local and national government and various representative associations. They show a great interest in discussing the impact of intelligent vehicles on: road traffic efficiency, safety, inclusivity, and trust in technology.
We collected a wide variety of views from the discussions of the twenty participants on four topics (Society, Safety, Mobility and Trust) and captured these views in illustrations made by Menah Wellen. For each topic, the illustration explores some views, concerns and hopes expressed in the discussion on that topic.

The introduction and acceptance of intelligent vehicles in everyday life will go hand in hand with an integrated approach in which other aspects of society and life will transition, such as a change to the way insurance works, a change to the way public transport is operated and a change to urban design and open spaces.workshop participant
