Study on exploring the possible employment implications of Connected and Automated Driving
The European Commission has launched a study aiming at acquiring detailed knowledge and better understanding of the expected impacts of connected and automated driving (CAD) on jobs and employment.
The purpose of the study is to bring evidence and facilitate the development of appropriate policy options specifically on the potential impact of CAD on jobs and employment in the road transport and linked sectors. In this regard a third workshop is organised on 11 June 2020, 13:30 – 16:00, online webinar – hosted on WebEx to present the identified social and employment impacts of the deployment of CAD technology across four different scenarios at the level of drivers and non-drivers for freight and passenger transport.
The objective is then to discuss various policy measures based on the identified impacts. Policy measures include measures under the following categories:
- Awareness and acceptance;
- Education and training (for the current and future workforce);
- Regulatory aspects (e.g. impacts on the driving license directive);
- Measures affecting the social contract between employers and employees;
- And other measures that aim to facilitate a smooth transition towards automated road transport.
Registration will close on June 9 at 12:00 CEST.
A background document with an overview over the main impacts identified as well as a list of possible policy measures will be sent via email. The link to join the meeting online will be sent you by email the day before.
