WardsAuto: U.K. Government, Auto Industry Gather to Talk Tech

The U.K. government holds a roundtable conference with auto-industry leaders to discuss plans to make the region a world leader in electric, connected and autonomous vehicles.

Chaired by Transport Minister John Hayes, it was attended by representatives of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, vehicle manufacturers, the Center for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles and Office for Low Emission Vehicles.

Hayes outlined the content of the Vehicle Technology and Aviation Bill now pending in a House of Commons committee.

The legislation is designed to help position the U.K. as a global destination for the development of ultra-low-emissions and connected and autonomous vehicles.

It introduces policies to modernize the region's transport system and help capitalize on what the government sees as a £51 billion ($62.6 billion) -a-year economic opportunity.

Measures include electric-charging infrastructure at service stations and fuel retailers, ensuring charging points are compatible with all vehicles across all networks, and updating insurance rules addressing autonomous driving.

The roundtable came ahead of an SMMT cross-industry event on connected and autonomous vehicles taking place March 30 in London.

SMMT Connected 2017 will bring together senior automotive executives, technology-sector representatives and policymakers to discuss the latest developments and challenges around connected- and autonomous-vehicle technology in the U.K.
