Public Consultation on Connected and Automated Driving
The European Commission recently launched a public consultation on how Europe should build trust in connected and automated mobility services. The consultation that will be open until 4 December 2018 aims to identify and analyse the main challenges linked to the deployment of connected and automated vehicles.
The European Commission is expecting to receive the contribution of relevant stakeholders, such as car manufacturers, connectivity-, service- and telecom providers and public authorities, but also collect inputs from all citizens on the end-users’ concerns. The input gathered at the end of the public consultation will feed into new European policy recommendations.
The consultation builds on three key areas in relation to connected and automated mobility. First of all, it investigates cybersecurity threats and trust issues. Secondly, it asks about different aspects of technology needs for 5G large-scale testing or pre-deployment to finally conclude with an examination of privacy and data protection needs and data governance aspects. By opening this consultation, the EU Commission also seeks to ensure that the EU legal and policy frameworks are ready to support the deployment of safe connected and automated mobility, while simultaneously addressing societal and environmental concerns which will be decisive for public acceptance.
The CAD initiative strongly encourages everyone interested in CAD to take part in the public consultation as it is an opportunity to help shape the legal framework of the deployment of connected and autonomous driving in Europe.
