ET Road Safety & Safer Mobility Forum 2023: Pioneering Solutions for India's Road Safety Surge

The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) recently released its ‘Road Accidents in India-2022’ report, revealing an 11.9% increase in road accidents, which resulted in over 61,000 deaths. The report underscores the critical need to address factors such as over-speeding, reckless driving, and non-compliance with traffic regulations.

Amidst this backdrop of an alarming surge in road accidents across India, is organising the third edition of the ET Road Safety & Safer Mobility Forum 2023. This pivotal gathering aims to bring together industry leaders, policymakers, thought leaders, and decision-makers from diverse sectors, including transportation, technology, oil and gas, FMCG, and others with significant vehicle presence on roads to engage in impactful conversations to chart the roadmap to achieving global standards of fleet safety by leveraging AI and new technologies.

As the global transportation and logistics landscape undergoes a seismic shift amid digital disruption, technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, IoT, and Data Science are at the forefront of this revolution. The forum’s mission is to chart actionable strategies for the effective and seamless integration of these technologies to enhance safety, efficiency, and inclusivity in the transportation sector.

The ET Road Safety & Safer Mobility Forum 2023 is poised to be a nexus of transformative conversations, featuring closed-door roundtable discussions that will bring together a consortium of thought leaders, industry experts, and key stakeholders. This intimate setting is designed to serve as an intellectual melting pot, fostering dialogue and collaborative efforts among luminaries from oil & gas, hazardous chemicals (HazChem), FMCG, retail, and other pivotal sectors.

The Summit offers a definitive platform for key stakeholders within the logistics and transportation ecosystem to converge, dissect challenges, and explore innovative solutions at the intersection of safety, technology, and sustainability. These exclusive closed-door discussions aim to unravel actionable strategies and chart the course toward a safer and more secure future in the expansive landscape of road safety and mobility.

Additionally, the discussions will also explore the role of technology in ensuring safety and efficiency in the supply chain and transportation within these dynamic and consumer-centric industries. Collectively, the event will chart a comprehensive roadmap toward a safer and more secure future in logistics and transit.

Furthermore, as we delve into these critical discussions, the key takeaways from the MoRTH report take on added significance. The prevalence of overspeeding, identified as a dominant factor in road accidents, calls for a focused exploration of technology-driven solutions within the forum. The high incidence of accidents on straight roads suggests the need for an in-depth consideration of road designs within our safety strategies.

The commonality of ‘hit from back’ collisions and the preponderance of accidents under ‘sunny/clear’ weather conditions underscore the need for comprehensive safety measures adaptable to varied circumstances. Notably, the substantial contribution of two-wheelers to accidents and fatalities highlights the forum’s pivotal role in strategizing targeted safety interventions for this specific category.

In the face of these challenges, the ET Road Safety & Safer Mobility Forum 2023 emerges as a beacon of hope. Through the amalgamation of diverse stakeholders and the harnessing of advanced technologies, the forum aspires to act as a catalyst for change, bridging the gap between insights and actions. The Summit aims to pave the way for a safer, smarter, and more inclusive transportation and logistics ecosystem in India, directly addressing the nuanced challenges outlined in the government’s recent report.”
