Workshop on Automation Pilots on Public Roads


On 18 May 2017, 33 experts from all over Europe met at the ERTICO premise in Brussels for a workshop on “Automation Pilots on Public Roads“, which was organised by the European Commission. This Workshop follows up from an earlier workshop organised in December 2016 where eight different countries gave presentations of current plans for large-scale public road pilots. In this second workshop, six local initiatives and projects as well as two large-scale EU-projects presented their approaches. The objective of the workshop was to facilitate learning and collaboration, and to investigate how to compare initiatives across Europe. During the preparation, the use of classification tools was considered and a framework based on spider web diagrams is proposed to the audience as a classification model for on-going activities.

For more information on the proceedings of the workshop, please consult its Minutes.
