Event description

Description

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) will change our lives, cities, society and the world in the 21st Century as much as the arrival of cars did during the 20th Century. Barrie Kirk's presentation will be in three parts:

  1. an overview of the status, deployment and trends of AVs;
  2. the big-picture socio-economic impacts on our lives, the economy and the world, and
  3. more detailed information on the impacts on AVs on traffic deaths, injuries and related health care issues -- including some details that may surprise you.



Future of Prevention Talk Series: Brought to you by the Ministry of Labour's Prevention Office. This series serves to explore future opportunities for eliminating preventable workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities.

All public servants are welcome.
