ARCADE – Aligning Research & Innovation for Connected and Automated Driving in Europe

Technologies for connected and automated driving can largely contribute to increasing the efficiency and safety of the transport system. Starting with 1 October 2018, ARCADE project will work on bringing connected and automated vehicles a step closer to the European roads.


ARCADE (Aligning Research & Innovation for Connected and Automated Driving in Europe) aims to coordinate consensus-building across stakeholders in order to enable smooth deployment of connected and automated driving (CAD) on European roads and beyond. The project supports the commitment of the European Commission, Member States as well as industry to develop a common approach to development, testing, validation and deployment of connected and automated driving.


CLEPA, partner of the project, will support bringing European and international stakeholders together and promoting collaboration and consensus building in several thematic areas, mainly via the organisation of three European CAD  Conferences and Symposium in the coming years. The first, EUCAD 2019 Conference, is taking place on 2 & 3 April 2019 in Brussels.


The ARCADE project will build upon the successful work done and the strong joint networks already established within the CARTRE and SCOUT Projects. The project is fully funded by the European Commission as part of Horizon 2020, involves 23 partners, 6 associated partners and will last 3 years..


The main results of ARCADE will be:

  • Knowledge Base on CAD (Connected and Automated Driving) regulations and policy, on organisations & projects, on standards, on testing methodologies & data and lessons learned
  • Scenarios, positions, gap analysis and recommendations on 12 thematic CAD areas
  • Updates of CAD roadmaps
  • Common Research & Innovation approaches across EU, US, Japan and other international countries
  • Web, newsletter and newsflash promotion of national, European and international CAD activities
