Linking government and industry to develop autonomous cars: Interview with Daniel Ruiz

The acronym CAV, Connected and Autonomous vehicles, broadly covers the technology that will create enormous impacts in countries all over the world. It will change how and when we travel but will also generate jobs and enhance wealth creation opportunities.

Private industry is pushing hard and governments can’t totally control it but it is critical that governments facilitate the process if a country is to gain the most benefits, not just corporate profits but also long-term community benefits.

In the UK they set up a separate organisation Meridian Mobility UK Limited to enhance the interaction between governments and industry. Meridian’s Chief Executive officer is Daniel Ruiz.  Daniel brings a calm, thoughtful confidence to a world that is frantically pushing technological developments. We caught up with him at an Intelligent Transport Systems Summit.
