On October 7 2016, the European Commission together with representatives of 12 EU Member States and industry launched the C-ROADS platform – a set of projects on connected, cooperative and automated driving. The C-ROADS platform gathers real-life deployment activities taking place in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Slovenia, Sweden and UK.


The C-ROADS platform is co-funded through EU Connecting Europe Facility (CEF), but it is open to all ongoing and future deployment activities in Europe. It already amounts to €150m in deployment-investments, a figure which is expected to double with the next CEF call (foreseen for autumn 2016).


The Commission will issue a “Masterplan on the Interoperable Deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) across the EU” by the end of this year to continue efforts towards connected, cooperative and automated driving.
