Virtual Masterclass on ‘Automated, connected, and cooperative mobilities’

Automation is a fast moving phenomenon that has already entered the mobility arena. Artificial intelligence is creating a “technological tsunami” (Elliott 2018) that is transforming modern lives, communication, intimacy, production, design, and mobilities.

This masterclass, co-organized by Erasmus+ EU Research Network CCAMEU and HfWU, focusses on contemporary research and  PhD work examining automation and mobilities. Through this masterclass the social implications and consequences of automation led mobility transformations will be placed centre stage. Keynote presentations will be given by Dr Weert Canzler (Berlin) and Dr Jack Stilgoe (London).
