SA 42 FACILITATING AUTOMATED DRIVING WORKSHOP
Tuesday 29 & Wednesday 30 September 2020
TRAFICOM, HELSINKI, FINLAND OR ONLINE EVENT (TBD)
AIMS OF THE WORKSHOP
One of the most prominent developments in road transport is automation.
The introduction of automated functions in vehicles has already started. The number of equipped vehicles is expected to grow and there are promises that the functions will become more and more advanced.
Stakeholders need to consider their position on automation. What is their vision, what are their interests and options? What can and should they practically do to prepare?
The EU-EIP project considers these kind of questions from the point of view of road authorities and operators and is setting up a roadmap document. Other initiatives are asking these questions as well; this is a continuous effort since the field of automation is constantly evolving.
Our work, and this event, will focus on the actions to be carried out by road authorities and operators to facilitate automated driving, especially during the next 10 years. The actions focus especially in the adaptations in physical and digital road infrastructures, and aiming for optimal benefit/cost of the actions.
A draft roadmap, written by the consortium and discussed with many stakeholders in the CCAM platform, will be available in advance of the workshop. We will use this workshop for final inputs to this document, and contribute to the continuing joined exploration towards clean, safe and efficient connected, cooperative and automated mobility.
