Competitiveness and sustainability of connected and automated transport
On the 22nd of January 2018, the European Commission published a roadmap document on connected and automated transport.
This Strategic Transport Research and Innovation Agenda (STRIA) roadmap document addresses the Research and Innovation (R&I) activities and other policy support measures required so that the concepts of connected and automated transport (CAT), for all transport modes, may contribute to the Energy Union 2050 goals in the domains of decarbonisation, greater efficiency and competitiveness. Connectivity and automation in transport (CAT), covering all modes, provides opportunities for a variety of policy targets and objectives. CAT technologies can largely contribute to increase the efficiency and safety of the transport system. CAT will also be a necessary factor in establishing other technical solutions in the transport system, such as electro-mobility, new vehicle designs, new infrastructure, network traffic management and smart transport and mobility in general.
