ARCADE Joint CAD Network Stakeholder Workshop
The second ARCADE Joint CAD Network Stakeholder Workshop took place on 4 April following the EUCAD 2019 conference in Brussels. It attracted more than 120 participants, representing a total of 40 projects on Connected and Automated Driving (CAD) from Europe, the US and Japan.
The first edition joint workshop took place on 5-6 February and was used to receive feedback & further input regarding the initial findings & scenarios based on thematic areas developed by ARCADE. The results were refined & consolidated to create the ERTRAC Roadmap on Automated Driving along with European Commission’s Strategic Transport Research & Innovation Agenda (STRIA) Roadmap.
The focus of this edition was on Research and Innovation (R&I) initiatives. ARCADE is interested in the results, challenges and gaps in the context of key thematic areas. This is essential to the deployment of CAD in Europe and beyond. The main purpose of the workshop was to identify future research needs and areas of mutual interest for collaboration between projects. Attendees were given an overview of EC policies, R&I programmes and associated European projects by Tom Alkim from DG Research and Georgios Sarros from INEA. Also in attendance were Takahiko Uchimura from ITS Japan and Kevin Dopart from the U.S Department of Transport. Both speakers gave an overview of R&I activities on Automated Road Transport in the U.S & Japan.
The second portion of the workshop was dedicated to a networking event allowing projects to interact & discuss ideas. This was followed by breakout sessions, giving participants the opportunity to exchange knowledge, ongoing activities, lessons learned & future plans. Project feedback & collaboration is essential in ARCADE’s pursuit of building the future roadmap for CAD in Europe.
Organisation of project concertation is a key objective of ARCADE. Other action objectives include promoting the exchange of knowledge, experiences and lessons from past and ongoing CAD initiatives. This includes the national, European and international level. To further this objective, a Knowledge Base is being created which will serve as a one stop shop regarding knowledge on CAD in Europe. This will facilitate sharing and reuse, thus ensuring transferability of knowledge and data for future CAD research and developments. Furthermore, we encourage CAD stakeholders and experts to join the ARCADE’s associated partnership. Associated partners can participate and contribute content in activities such as the ARCADE workshops.
