EU Member States programmes on connected and automated driving

Description

Since last year Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) is put high on the agenda of the EU and national governments. There is increasing awareness amongst decision makers that action from public authorities is needed to create the right conditions for safe deployment of CAD.

Several national and regional plans have been launched in Europe and a number of European Member States have started to prepare and implement large scale testing of CAD functions on public roads.

This session will provide an overview of current policy measures adopted by European Member States including available funding programmes and support to large-scale testing facilities.

National activities regarding pilots and testing of CAD will be illustrated by elaborating on objectives, scale, type of tests, and levels of automation.

In particular, aspects related to required modification of road infrastructure and types of infrastructure (e.g. physical, ITS communication) will be considered.

The main objective of the session is to support mutual understanding of current initiatives, to discuss alignment between national and EU initiatives and to identify possible areas of cooperation.
