Midlands Future Mobility is a “one-stop-shop” for mobility developers and solution providers. Accelerating design and manufacture of Connected and Automated Mobility technologies.
  • The UK’s, and possibly the World’s largest real-world trial environment for Connected and Automated Mobility products and services
  • An environment of over 300km including campus ‘mini-city’, urban (single and dual-carriageway), rural, and highway (motorway) roads between Birmingham and Coventry
  • Highly connected, with a digital backbone collecting data and supporting trial design and execution

This Freight and Logistics workshop is delivered to you in partnership with NatWest. The workshop will focus on the challenges for freight and logistics companies and strategies that need to be in place to enable connected and automated freight and logistics services.
