Northbrook, Illinois – July 15, 2021 – UL, the global safety science leader, today announced that it will host the virtual Realizing the Future of Mobility Now Summit Wed., Aug. 11 to Fri., Aug. 13 (SGT). The event will be held in collaboration with the Advanced Remanufacturing and Technology Centre (ARTC), a unit of Singapore's Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), that fuels public-private partnerships to translate advanced research to industry applications. Sessions will provide insight focusing on safety, security, quality, performance, regulatory and sustainability challenges related to ACES, the four interdependent mega-trends transforming the automotive industry: autonomy, connectivity, electrification and shared mobility. Speakers include thought leaders from the World Economic Forum®, Society of Automotive Engineers Industry Technologies Consortia® (SAE ITC), Foretellix, Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, KPMG, Stantec GenerationAV, Aurora Labs, the National University of Singapore, Great Wall Motors and Deepen AI, among others. 

“Introducing innovative autonomous vehicle technologies, while providing enhanced convenience and safety benefits, also introduces new safety challenges. This is why the convergence of new mobility technologies and safety requires holistic solutions that help enable the safe and secure operation of increasingly intelligent and complex vehicle systems,” said Sajeev Jesudas, the executive vice president and chief commercial officer for UL. Never has there been a more exciting or innovative time as the new mobility revolution accelerates every day. At the Realizing the Future of New Mobility Summit, we are looking forward to joining ARTC to put a spotlight on critical new mobility issues that can help advance adoption of AV technologies.”

The Realizing the Future of Mobility Now Summit will provide automotive manufacturers and suppliers the most up-to-date information on comprehensive testing, inspection certification, and training and assessment services related to autonomous vehicles. This includes aspects affecting cybersecurity, in-vehicle electronics, complex vehicle propulsion systems and advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), as well as entirely new micro-mobility technologies and products.
