CzechInvest attends Investing in Innovation forum in London

Representatives of eleven Central and Eastern European countries attended the Investing in Innovation forum in the City of London on 12 June 2018. The Czech Republic was represented by its embassy in London and CzechInvest. Dagmar Healey, an expert on autonomous mobility at the Ministry of Transportation of the Czech Republic, and Jan Najvárek of the Brno-based start-up Roboauto, which is developing the first robotic car in the Czech Republic, spoke on the topic of autonomous driving.

Operation of autonomous vehicles on Czech roads should be addressed in future by a draft amendment to Act No. 361/2000 Coll., on Road Traffic.
