The sense of direction: science meets industry
Keynotes covering topics from biologically inspired robotic navigation to neuroscience and architecture
Join us to learn how emerging findings from the study of spatial orientation in animals and humans may help solve practical problems of human navigation.
This event is organised by the Institute's Cognitive Navigation Special Interest Group, working closely with UCL, London.
How the mind/brain works impacts how people navigate in cities: this conference will enable exchanges of information, ideas and needs in urban design between researchers, users and industry.
Registration for this one-day meeting includes all talks from academics and industry, morning and afternoon panel discussions and a poster session/reception in the evening.
