Welcome to the first Aurora Summit in Olos, Finnish Lapland, 16-17th January 2018!

Aurora Summit: Safe and Secure Automated Transport in All Conditions

In all modes of transport, automation is one of the key trends and at the same time one of the key challenges. Aurora Summit 2018 will take place to discuss this highly important theme of future traffic: intelligent transport that works safely and securely in all conditions, even outside the sunny California and when it is raining cats, dogs, snow or hail. The Summit brings together the public and private sectors to discuss the state-of-the-art as well as the necessary actions needed for automated transport to meet this challenge.

Infrastructure for future transport is built today

The theme of the first Aurora Summit is Safe and Secure Automated Transport in All Conditions. Ensuring that automated transport will be developed to work also in challenging environments and in every weather requires further discussion on technological preparedness and possibilities. It also requires discussion of the regulatory environments and international standardisation. The Summit will raise a very important aspect of how infrastructure and infrastructure management can support the development of transport automation.

Winter is coming - together towards a snowtonomous future

Our international speakers will guide you to the world of automation applications and international testing. The Summit will showcase ITS services and transport automation in extreme weather. We will also visit the Aurora test-section open to all organisations to test ITS innovations and automation to meet the challenges of different environments. In addition to hearing about the developments in road transport, you will get the latest news about automation in maritime sector.

Please note: Aurora Summit is by invitation only: In case your organisation would like to get an invitation, contact organizers. More information here.
