ARCADE - Supporting the CAD Initiative

ARCADE is a Coordination and Support Action funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, aimed at building consensus across stakeholders from all sectors for a sound and harmonised deployment of Connected, Cooperative and Automated Driving (CAD) in Europe and beyond.

ARCADE federates a CAD Stakeholder Network through the organisation of regular workshops and co-organisation, with the European Commission, of EUCAD Conferences and Symposia. The CAD network exchanges knowledge and experiences, builds up synergies and a common approach to development, testing, and validation of CAD. A main objective is to contribute to the definition of future research and innovation priorities in Europe for the main thematic areas related to the deployment and adoption of CAD (e.g. STRIA and ERTRAC Roadmaps on Connected and Automated Transport).

ARCADE also consolidates an online Knowledge Base of CAD knowhow, including an overview of impact assessment, testing and evaluation methodologies, regulations, policies and standards, roadmaps and strategic plans at European, Member State and even international levels.

ARCADE capitalises on the CARTRE Support Action legacy and is open to Associated Partnership.
