SBD Automotive has confirmed that it will attend the MOVE 2022 conference as a member of ServCity, an autonomous mobility research project led by a consortium of industry leaders. Hosted by Terrapinn, this year’s conference carries the theme of Mobility Re-Imagined and will showcase the sector’s latest models, technologies, and sustainability solutions. MOVE 2022 will host more than 350 exhibitors and 250 start-ups from across the mobility landscape, including several from the automotive industry.

Held at the ExCeL exhibition center in east London between Wednesday, June 15 and Thursday, June 16, the conference will also provide attendees the chance to gain valuable mobility insights. Here, dozens of keynotes, panels, and fireside chats will be held throughout the event’s 33 conference stages. These discussions revolve around a broad variety of topics concerning the mobility landscape of today and tomorrow including electric vehicles; battery technology; business models; mobility-as-a-service; smart cities; autonomous vehicles; connectivity & 5G; fleet management; and the automotive supply chain. More than 600 speakers will head the conversations taking place over MOVE’s two-day agenda, offering an extensive range of opportunities to hear and learn from OEMs, start-ups, and technology firms leading the mobility space.

At the conference, ServCity’s stand will allow attendees to learn more about its research project, through which it aims to harness the latest autonomous vehicle technologies and successfully integrate them into complex urban environments. In understanding the ways in which cities can exploit the potential of autonomous mobility solutions and accelerate their deployment, ServCity will leverage a multi-faceted testing approach. Simulation and end-user experience research will be conducted in dedicated test facilities ahead of public road testing on the streets of London. At the center of ServCity’s approach is a Nissan LEAF that will be equipped with the technologies developed and implemented over the course of the project. The EV will also form an integral part of the project’s public testing phase.

ServCity is backed by the UK Government, receiving partial funding from The Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) and Innovate UK – the Government’s innovation agency. The project’s partners today include Nissan, Connected Places Catapult, Hitachi, TRL – a subsidiary of the Transport Research Foundation, the University of Nottingham, and SBD Automotive. Across both days of MOVE 2022, ServCity representatives from each of these partners will be in attendance. From SBD Automotive, Senior Business Development Manager Luigi Bisbiglia will be present on June 15 and Product Planning Director Alessio Ballatore on June 16. Both Luigi and Alessio will be happy to meet with anyone interested in learning more about ServCity or SBD’s own research and consultancy services.
