Road mobility is changing, driven by digitalization, automation, and connectivity. Since vehicles are becoming not only connected but also autonomous and evolving from a commodity to a service, new forms of road mobility are a central instrument for the digital and green transition, contributing to greater safety, accessibility, and sustainability, as well as to the sharing economy.
In this framework, the conference held several sessions in Portuguese and English, where topics related to Future Mobility Opportunities and Autonomous Vehicles and Intelligent Infrastructure were addressed. Moreover, the event brought together both national and international speakers to discuss where Portugal currently stands and the way forward.
