The Automated Vehicle Special Interest Group (AVSIG) is a community within the larger AAAM organization with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, safety, learning, or technology around highly automated vehicles and mobility solutions. This year at the 2019 meeting, the AVSIG is organizing a 90-minute session consisting of panelist presentations (experts from industry and academia) followed by audience Q&A.
Road Safety in Low- & Middle-Income Countries
Presented by LMIC Special Interest Group
In their latest Global Status Report on Road Safety (2018), the World Health Organisation show that death rates in Low and Middle Income countries are 3 times higher per capita than that of higher income countries and the gap is increasing. The session will address this burgeoning road safety problem and will address what can be done immediately to improve safety in these regions. The role of AAAM in working with these countries will be a key feature of the session where the audience will hear from experts and have a chance to discuss this openly.
