The main aim of the World Café sessions is to bring industry stakeholders around one table. By entering into an open and creative conversation about key issues affecting all, sharing knowledge, ideas and insights everyone gains a deeper understanding of the challenges and solutions faced. To deepen the interaction, participants are asked to rotate to a new World Café table every 30 minutes (according to their assigned sequence of tables, decided by our proprietary algorithm. The results of each conversation are recorded on white boards and available throughout the event for people to see and reflect on.

Pre-Conference Human-Centered Design Workshop

In this session you can discuss how human-centered design can be applied to autonomous driving to better suit and address challenges and identify opportunities for optimal future user experience! In small groups we will help each other to see unmet needs and hidden possibilities for innovation. We will work with early prototyping, and hopefully by the end of this session have lots of ideas on how to improve your communication tools through using the process of human-centered design.
