Incentives and Decision-Making in the Internet of Vehicles (Workshop)

Venue: Online

How could incentives or dynamic pricing help to optimise our future smart transport systems? How would a ‘smart junction’ behave, and why? How might we resolve competing demands like speed, pollution, congestion, safety, and social equity?

Please join us, and other experts, to discuss the role of incentives and decision-making in the Internet of Vehicles (IoV).

This half-day workshop will explore a series of scenarios to inform our research agenda and identify specific projects of interest to stakeholders. Outcomes from the workshop will include:

  • A better understanding of how incentives and optimisation might work in the IoV.
  • Identification of specific challenges where incentives and optimisation could be applied.
  • Partnerships between stakeholders and researchers to create co-designed research activity.
  • A better understanding of how to address important social and environmental challenges, to ensure that incentives and optimisation are fair, acceptable and beneficial to the wider population.


We’re keen to discuss these challenges with a wide range of stakeholders, including researchers, industry, government and civil society. Attendees could include (but are not limited to):

  • Transport researchers
  • Optimisation, incentive-design and decision-making researchers
  • Central and local government
  • Transport and highways operators
  • Vehicle and transport-infrastructure manufacturers
  • Groups representing transport users

We’ll structure our discussions so that everyone can contribute, whether an expert in the underlying research or not!

The AutoTrust project – a collaboration between the University of Southampton and the University of Warwick – is researching how to design, build, and sustain trustworthy human-centric smart transport systems that leverage advances in technologies such as connected and autonomous vehicles and the Internet of Things.
