CAD at the ITS European Congress
From 3 to 6 June 2019, the 13th ITS European Congress will be taking place in the city of Eindhoven and will have Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) as one of the main topics. This important event, entirely dedicated to the digitalisation of transport and smart mobility, will gather stakeholders from all around Europe and beyond to discuss innovation in the transport and mobility sector.
Aiming at supporting the efforts of the European Commission, the European Member States, and the industry to develop a common approach to development, testing, validation and deployment of CAD, the ARCADE initiative will be at the Congress organising and supporting several sessions on CAD.
On Tuesday 4 June from 10.30 to 11.30 at the room Neptune, a special session on “Possible actions for Public Authorities to facilitate Automated Driving” will be organised by ARCADE project coordinator Stephane Dreher. The session moderated by Tom Alkim, DG Research Policy Officer, will be an excellent opportunity to present the results of the analysis of roadmaps and action plans done in ARCADE’s predecessor project CARTRE.
On the same day, a session on connected, cooperative and automated mobility focused on “What do citizens want?” will be organised in the CAD Stream from 16:15 to 17:00 at the Philips Hall. This session is co-organised by ERTICO and ARCADE and will be moderated by Antoine Vergne, Director at Missions Publiques. ARCADE project coordinator will be also speaking during this session, together with other experts such as Martin Russ from AustriaTech, Clement Aubourg from Keolis and Kristine Hess-Akens, Project Manager CIVITAS from the city of Aachen.
Following that discussion, on the next day, from 13.00 to 14.00 a session will be organised by ARCADE at the room Castor with the objective of bringing together different stakeholders to discuss the needs, expectations, fears, and the ‘red lines’ for citizens on the future of automated mobility.
Last but not least, also on Wednesday 5 June from 16.00 to 17.00, a session on ‘New ERTRAC Roadmap on Connected Automated Driving’ will take place at the room Castor. The session will be moderated by Directorate-General for Research & Innovation Ludger Rogge and will present the new ERTRAC Roadmap developed with the contribution of ARCADE. Stephane Dreher, ARCADE project coordinator, will present the role of the project and how it supports the development of roadmaps such as STRIA and ERTRAC and mention the open stakeholder platform that experts can join to contribute and collaborate.
In addition to that, more information on CAD will be provided at the ERTICO stand (2:1) and at the ERTRACT stand (0.11) in the Congress exhibition hall. Project partners will be there to explain to you more about where are we in Europe when it comes to connected and automated mobility.
