Public support measures for connected and automated driving
The European Commission has published a report on public support measures for connected and automated driving. The study explores and analyses the existing and planned public support and regulatory measures put in place within the EU and by Europe’s main competitors (the USA, China, Japan and Korea). It provides a policy-gap analysis of the EU versus third countries, and contributes to the identification of existing financial, technological and regulatory barriers. The study also helps to assess the existence of a level global playing field and the effectiveness and coherence of EU instruments available to support the development of automated and connected driving.
Based on the results obtained, it develops recommendations for the competitive deployment of connected and automated driving (C&AD) in Europe, also in relation to the work of one of the Gear 2030 working groups and the priorities identified in the EU’s ambitious Declaration of Amsterdam for cooperation in the field of C&AD.
