A unique public transport solution - The Cambridge Autonomous Metro

Talk details:

The Cambridge Autonomous Metro is an ambitious project to connect Cambridge and surrounding areas with a unique public transport solution. Combining our unique medieval city with a modern infrastructure project is a significant challenge. Our speakers led the work of the project's Technology Advisory Committee which produced a deliverable proposal for the project last year. Following the announcement of three new concepts, our speakers will discuss the engineering challenges, proposed solutions and the benefits it could bring to the city.
