International cooperation on connected and automated driving
Many of the challenges on the way towards deployment of CAD systems can be better addressed in cooperation with international partners. It is essential to develop and maintain close cooperation with other regions of the world to exchange knowledge, expertise and best practises and to work towards a global framework and international standards for connectivity and automation technologies.
Close international cooperation will also help to reduce duplication of efforts, and encourage sharing of knowledge and data collected in research projects and large-scale pilots. Cooperation is also needed on complementary research in areas, such as human-machine interface, social acceptances of CAD and ITS technologies.
International cooperation in the field of intelligent transport systems, road safety and road automation is already ongoing for several years, in particular between EU, US and Japan. In 2012 a tri-lateral working group (EU, US, JPN) on road automation has been established. The European Commission and the US Department of Transport support “twinning arrangements” of road automation projects funded by the EU and the US to expand the breadth of learning, optimize the use of mutual resources, and improve outcomes in both regions.
The objective of this session is to present policies and actions of different regions of the world to support the development and deployment of connected and automated driving systems and to discuss main benefits and future priorities for International Cooperation in the area of connected and automated driving.
