New roadmap on automated driving
The European Road Transport Research Advisory Council (ERTRAC) has presented its new roadmap on automated driving at the 12th ITS European Congress in Strasbourg.
The EU-funded CARTRE and SCOUT projects have provided extensive support for the realisation of this roadmap. The document aims to provide a joint stakeholders view on European automated driving in Europe. The roadmap starts from common definitions and a listing of available technologies, and then identifies the challenges for the implementation of higher levels of automated driving functions. For different vehicle types, different developmental paths are outlined. The roadmap describes automated driving as one of the key technologies and major technological advancements influencing and shaping our future mobility and quality of life.
