The Autonomous


Why we need The Autonomous

As autonomous mobility is moving closer to becoming a reality, safety concerns prove to be the main hurdle in the way of reaching broad acceptance. In order to meet this challenge, the autonomous mobility industry must come together to show serious efforts in ensuring and prioritizing safety on all levels, as well as to set common technical and legal standards.

Overcoming this challenge and the investment costs cannot be mastered by a single OEM, tier 1, or tech company. We are therefore gathering leading influencers from the autonomous ecosystem to write the next chapter in Vienna on September 5, 2019


Create a safer, more livable, and sustainable future


Establish a global safety reference, created by the global community, which facilitates the adoption of autonomous mobility on a grand scale

Global Safety Reference

Ensuring safety is the key to gaining acceptance of autonomous mobility on a broad scale. We will start this critical discussion by gathering together the complete autonomous mobility ecosystem and facilitate a mutual exchange of ideas by offering various workshops on key topics (Safety & Security, Safety & AI, Safety & Architecture, Safety & Regulation), panel discussions, and keynote speeches.

The outcome of The Autonomous Event will be summarized and serve as the basis for further collaboration, and to set the global safety reference foundation.
